Behind undefeated TCU, the Big 12 race is very crowded. The top two teams in the league make the championship game, and Kansas State, Texas and Baylor sit at 4-2 in conference play. K-State lost to Texas last week, so the Wildcats really need to go to Waco and win on Saturday night. Baylor, meanwhile, has quietly strung together three straight wins after a two-game losing streak to start October. The Bears took care of Kansas and Texas Tech last week before going to Norman to beat Oklahoma. Kansas State is one step ahead of Baylor, who won the Big 12 title last season.

With Big 12 title implications also at play in this game, the stakes are huge for TCU. The Horned Frogs, now 9-0 on the year, moved up to No. 4 in the CFP rankings Tuesday night. TCU has been winning several tight games to get to this point. In fact, six of its nine wins were decided by 10 points or less. Many of those victories have come from behind. That high-wire act explains why the Horned Frogs are seven points behind in Austin on Saturday. Texas has been favored by oddsmakers all season; A visit from Alabama was the only time the Longhorns trailed on the year. But UT hasn’t always lived up to that billing. Texas enters this game with a 6-3 record, although all three of those losses came by one possession.
