Poinsettia Bowl 2011: TCU Favored Big Over Louisiana Tech

The TCU Horned Frogs will take on the Louisiana Tech Bulldogs in the 2011 Poinsettia Bowl in San Diego, CA.

As you might imagine, the high-powered Horned Frogs are favored and favored big. They're an eleven-point favorite according to OddsShark.

TCU won the Mountain West with a 10-2 record and finished the regular season ranked No. 16. Louisiana Tech won the Western Athletic Conference with an 8-4 record. The Bulldogs started the season 1-4 with three losses in which they squandered a fourth quarter lead but were able to turn it around.

Last season the Horned Frogs rode their season into a BCS bowl and knocked off Wisconsin. This season, the Horned Frogs fell just short of a BCS at-large bid, instead making their way back to California for the Poinsettia Bowl.
