No. 23 TCU sits in second place in the Big 12 Football standings as the 5-1 Horned Frogs play in their first season in the conference, with Texas Tech close behind. Baylor and Texas, who have both struggled in conference play so far this season, bring up the rear of the standings along with Kansas.

The Horned Frogs are coming off a 49-21 dismantling of Baylor, in which Trevone Boykin passed for 261 yards and four touchdowns, while scoring another on 56 yards rushing. TCU's only loss on the season, however, came to conference-foe Iowa State.

The Texas Longhorns, who slipped out of the AP Top 25 rankings this week, have now lost two straight after coming up short against West Virginia and being blown out in Dallas against Oklahoma, 63-21. The Longhorns will face Baylor this Saturday, with kickoff set for 7 p.m. CT on ABC.
