Iowa State vs. TCU 2012: TV schedule, game time, spread and more

Jerome Miron-US PRESSWIRE - Presswire

Game information for the TCU Horned Frogs' matchup with the Iowa State Cyclones this Saturday.

When the betting lines for the Saturday matchup between No. 15 TCU and Iowa State opened, the odds were heavily in favor of the Horned Frogs, as they were 14.5 point favorites. That gap has since closed by a touchdown after the arrest of TCU quarterback Casey Pachall.

With Pachall suspended and out for Saturday's game, the Horned Frogs will have to instead turn to redshirt freshman Trevone Boykin, a dual threat quarterback who has seen very limited time so far this season. Appearing in three games with TCU, Boykin has completed 9-of-10 passes for 74 yards and touchdown, plus an additional 122 yards rushing with a touchdown on the ground.

Regardless of his past contributions though, he is an unknown commodity and will have a tough first task against the Iowa State Cyclones. After three straight wins to open the season, including one against their in-state rival Iowa Hawkeyes, the Cyclones earned their first loss of the season as they were beat 24-13 by Texas Tech.

If Boykin can be anywhere near as efficient as Pachall has been in 2012, the Horned Frogs could be in good shape to improve to 5-0.

Time, Location: Saturday, Oct. 6 at 2:30 p.m. CT, Amon G. Carter Stadium, Fort Worth, TX

Coverage: FSN

Spread: TCU is favored by 7 points
