Oddsmakers seem to think that TCU is on a bit of an island as far as their chances to win a national title go. The Horned Frogs’ odds of winning are much longer than any of the other three schools, meaning Sonny Dykes and company are big-time underdogs. However, that’s how things started this season and it’s gone about as well as it could’ve so TCU is right where it wants to be.
