The TCU Horned Frogs have proven that they can overcome losing a four-year starter at quarterback, losing key pieces of a talented secondary and still Gary Patterson's bunch is able to overcome and win.

TCU's reward is a No. 17 ranking in this week's coaches poll.

Baylor keeps on winning too, and after shocking the world with a huge win over Oklahoma they avoided the trap versus Texas Tech and disposed of them in a 66-42 offensive slugfest.
