College Football Betting Preview
TCU (9-1) at Utah (9-0)
Thursday, 8:00 pm Eastern
SBG Global Opening Line: TCU - 1.5 , Total 43.5
The biggest matchup of the season for teams outside BCS conferences takes place on Saturday as #8 Utah hosts #12 TCU. Only one team outside of the BCS is guaranteed a spot in the BCS bowl games if they are in the top 12 in the country so the loser of this game is out. “You always want to play in the big arena,” TCU coach Gary Patterson said. “Utah is a good football team – lot better at home. We’ve got a lot of work to do. We have to get everyone healed up and ready to go.”
