Where It Ranks: TCU After Week Two

The Horned Frogs improved to 2-0 and are the 15th ranked team in the nation.  The Frogs won both games convincingly, covering the double-digit spread each time.  Next up is a primetime matchup with the #4 team in the nation, those hated Ohio State Buckeyes.

Let’s take a look at where the team stands in the national rankings across the board.

OFFENSE

The Frogs are loaded on offense with speedy playmakers, a pair of bruising running backs and a highly touted dual-threat quarterback on the rise.  Offensive coordinator, Sonny Cumbie, is in his second year as the primary play caller.

TOTAL OFFENSE:

53rd, an average of 446 yards per game.

SCORING OFFENSE:

13th, an average of 48.5 points per game.

PASSING OFFENSE:

82nd, an average of 205 yards per game.

The Frogs passing attack is 36-60, good for a 60% completion percentage and 5 touchdowns.  Shawn Robinson ranks 40th in the nation with a 69.3 total QBR.

RUSHING OFFENSE:

37th, an average of 241 yards per game.

Darius Anderson and Sewo Olonilua give TCU a ruthless ground attack.  Both are listed on Bruce Feldman’s 2018 College Football Freaks List for their extraordinary strength. The Frogs average 5.7 yards per carry with 5 touchdowns on the ground.

DEFENSE

The Horned Frogs hang their hat on defense.  TCU has traditionally been one of the best defenses in the nation and the best in the Big 12 on this side of the ball.  They have been stellar in the first two games this year.

Here’s where the Frogs rank:

TOTAL DEFENSE:

10th, an average of 214 yards allowed per game.

PASSING DEFENSE:

11th, an average of 106 yards allowed per game.

The Horned Frogs have a dominant pair of defensive ends in Ben Banogu and Ty Summers.  The Frogs rank 15th in the nation in sacks with 7.

RUSHING DEFENSE:

38th, an average of 107.5 yards allowed per game.

SPECIAL TEAMS

The Horned Frogs have arguably the best two return men on any college football team in the nation.  KaVontae Turpin is a threat to score anytime from anywhere and he has been doing it for four years now. His teammate, freshman Derius Davis, took a punt 73 yards to the house for six points in the season opener.

PUNTING:

108th, an average of 34.7 yards per punt.

FIELD GOALS:

51st, 2 for 3 with a long of 30 yards.

KICK RETURNS:

60th, an average of 32.7 yards per return.

PUNT RETURNS:

1st, an average of 25 yards per return.  Two touchdowns!
