#517 Fresno State +10.5 over TCU 8:00 PM CT

Fresno State is one of the last programs to play a division I game, as they defeated Alaska-Anchorage on November 6 and this is the only game on the early season slate until November 22. The Bulldogs went 21-11 last season and only once all season did Fresno State lose by more than 12 points. Two senior starters are gone for Fresno State and new head coach Justin Hutson should have a lot to work with for another competitive season.

Two frontcourt seniors are now gone including Vladimir Brodziansky who was one of the top players in the Big XII last season. Jaylen Fisher also had to have another knee surgery and will miss the early part of the season. TCU has struggled in a light early season schedule beating Cal-State Bakersfield by just five points and beating Oral Roberts by just 17.

This is a very young group with TCU playing four freshmen in the early season eight-man rotation and turnovers have been a big issue for the offense. TCU has shot 66 percent from the line so far this season as points will be left off the board for the Frogs tonight laying a double-digit spread despite a big decline in offensive effectiveness so far this season. The Bulldogs have three senior starters for a big experience edge and a lot is going to be poured into this big opportunity for Fresno State and the first big game for Hutson leading the program.
