    The No. 11 TCU Horned Frogs will take on the No. 15 Oregon Ducks in San Antonio on Jan. 2 in the Alamo Bowl.

    The Horned Frogs (10-2, 7-2 Big 12) are making their second straight appearance in a bowl game and 31st all time. TCU was able to cap off an injury-ravaged 2015 regular season by winning their final game, 28-21, over the Baylor Bears. In a game that went two overtimes, the Horned Frogs came out on top thanks to an 8-yard connection from Tevone Boykin to KaVontae Turpin. Boykin amassed 164 total yards on the day and finished with two touchdowns through the air and one on the ground. Emanuel Porter led the TCU receving corps with 48 yards on three catches, but it was Jarrison Stewart and Turpin who hauled in Boykin’s touchdown passes. The Horned Frogs look to make it two consecutive bowl wins after TCU beat down Ole Miss, 42-3, in last year’s Peach Bowl. But they’ll have to do it without Boykin and wide receiver Preston Miller after the two were arrested for a bar fight and subsequently suspended. 

    The Ducks (9-3, 7-2 Pac-12) are making their 30th bowl game appearance. Oregon’s 2015 regular season got off to a rough start, but the Ducks finished strong winning six straight games. Last time out, Oregon downed Oregon State, 52-42, in the annual “Civil War.” The Beavers pulled within three points midway through the fourth quarter thanks to a Ryan Nall 66-yard touchdown run, but Vernon Adams put Oregon State away with a late 24-yard touchdown pass to Bralon Addison. Adams led the way for Oregon with 366 yards and three touchdowns. All three of his touchdown passes went to Addison, who recorded eight catches for 106 yards and scored another touchdown rushing. The Ducks are looking to get back in the win column in bowl games after losing the national championship game to Ohio State last year.

    The 2015 Alamo Bowl will mark the third meeting between TCU and Oregon with the series currently tied at one apiece. The Horned Frogs took the last matchup 14-10 back in 1978.

    Prediction

    The Ducks and the Frogs on turf is a matchup designed for fans who can’t get enough offense and explosive plays. Adams vs. Boykin will not disappoint, with both players orchestrating attacks that liberally move up and down the field. Adams’ team, though, is just a little hotter and a little healthier at this stage of a long season. Fueled by Freeman, Oregon will have greater success on the ground than TCU. And in a last-team-with-the-ball kind of game, the Ducks will make a key defensive stop in the final moments to close 2015 on a seven-game winning streak.
