So our defense should be able to handle them without too much of a problem, based on those numbers. Looks like Bell might have to work pretty damn hard though.

TCU was a bad matchup for us. I trust our D against any elite O, but their defense is pretty damn good. Not good news for our offense.
trust in roushar
10 of those passing TDs came from Casey Pachell, who was kicked off the team after a 4-0 start.
After that, TCU went 3-5, with W's against Baylor, West Virginia (2 OTs) and Texas.
Given the strength of the Big XII passing O's, that passing D # is pretty good.
Michigan State does not and will not run the 3-4 defense.

That O is not elite . . . .
But yea, of all the Big XII teams, UT, TCU and Oklahoma are the only ones who play D. Could be a good game for Sims though.
wonderful. Meh, we've proven we can't pass against anyone good or bad. Now we have a month to come up with some tweeks and see if Captain Kangaroo (aka....Derp Roushar) can figure it out. Not likely, but what the hell, stranger things have happened I suppose.

I meant if we went up against TT or OSU.
so...it could be a 3-0 game?
so our defense has to win the game?
To die in ann arbor is redundant
Naw, something like 17-13 sounds right.
6-3 MSU WIN!!!!!!!!!!!

I'm hoping that the defense can put the offense in some easy positions, just like they did against Minnesota.
GOOD OLE FASHION B1G-BXIII SHOOTOUT!
No way. Will be much higher scoring game than that! At least 6-3.
The moment is eternal
I agree. Would definitely rather play a team with a good O and a meh D.

TCU wins 9-7
Edit: and it's not 3 fieldgoals.
TCU gets a pick six, and we get called for holding in the endzone that reverses a 45 yard run by Le'Veon Bell on 3rd and 15.
