Odds: Texas Christian -3
Total O/U: 48½

The first bowl game of the season between top-15 teams will take place Thursday night with Stanford taking on Texas Christian in the Alamo Bowl.

The game figures to be somewhat of a home game for TCU who play their games in Dallas and this one will take place in San Antonio.

Stanford won the PAC-12 North going 9-4, 7-2 and put up a good fight before losing 31-28 to USC in the championship game. With Bryce Love running the ball (1973 yards, 17TDs) and the solid play of QB K.J. Costello who took over starters duties for the last five games the offense is in good hands.

With 32 sacks, it is also a defense who knows how to bring pressure.

TCU finished second in the Big-12 to Oklahoma at 10-3, 7-2. Two of their three losses on the year were to the Sooners. Kenny Hill had a solid year commanding the offense and they supported one of the best defenses in the country which allowed 17.6 PPG and had 42 sacks on the year.
