Mississippi vs. TCU Peach Bowl Game Breakdown


Mississippi v. TCU – Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, Dec. 31, 12:30pm

How angry is TCU that they dropped out of the Playoff?  That may come into play here, and that’s why this is a tasty matchup.  Any team in the SEC West would certainly be a favorite against almost anyone outside of the conference.  TCU bows to no one.  This will be a good test for them and an opportunity to prove to everyone that they indeed have a case for being one of the best four teams in the country.  Their offense is electric.  Quarterback Trevone Boykin was in the Heisman conversation a few weeks ago.  The Horned Frogs are the second-highest scoring team in the nation with a defense that holds teams to around 20 points per game.  They are as complete a team as Gary Patterson has had in Fort Worth.  That offense will be tested against Ole Miss.  The Rebels faded a bit down the stretch after an incredible victory against Alabama.  But they still boast the best scoring defense in the country (13 points per game) with a defensive back seven that finds the ball and flips the field.  It will be fun to see how this game unfolds: defensive struggle or high-flying shootout.

PREDICTION:  Ole Miss 28, TCU 27
