Big12 NonConf Games, Sep 8

TCU at Texas - Oh, how I'd love for the Froggies to beat UT in this one. This one is a tough one to predict, IMO. TCU is going to be tough on D, and the Horns should be fabulous on O. Texas lost three of their four leading tacklers from a defense that struglled last year, but TCU is breaking in a new QB. Prediction: Texas. (Sorry, Chuck.)
Miami FL at OU - I'm sure we'll analyze this one further in the coming weeks, but for now I'll keep it short. Prediction: Sooners
Fresno St at Cash Machine U - Pat Hill's Fresno State team was down this past year but I don't expect he'll be down two years in a row. Coach Fran seems a bit feisty this year in preseason, and I believe it's because he is truly confident in his team this year. McGee is in the top 2 QBs in the Big12, and CMU has a ton of talent at RB. If the D makes progress this year, this one is an Aggie victory in a walk. Prediction: Aggies
CU Later at Arizona State - The Dennis Erickson era starts at Tempe this year, and Dan Hawkins has a brutal non conference schedule this year. Dan has returned to the Hawkins bedroom since naming his son starting QB this year. ASU finished the year a mess. If Erickson can get Rudy Carpenter's head on straight, ASU could be pretty good this year. Prediction: Sun Devils
