How can TCU football follow up a big year? By having some more success in 2023. And ESPN’s Bill Connelly’s preseason SP+ rankings seem to indicate that the Horned Frogs could be pretty good again.
College football fans have been eagerly awaiting the 2023 preseason SP+ rankings to see which teams will be the top contenders for the upcoming season. The SP+ rankings are made of math and magic (and if you want to learn more, then click here) and ESPN’s Bill Connelly has finally unveiled the 2023 preseason SP+ rankings.
And here’s where TCU currently stacks up going into this season.
TCU football earns No. 19 preseason SP+ ranking
Even though the college football championship game against the Georgia Bulldogs went poorly, it appears as if things might be pretty good for Sonny Dykes and the TCU Horned Frogs football team in 2023.
The TCU football team has earned the No. 19 spot in the preseason SP+ rankings ahead of the 2023 season. That’s not bad, all things considered.
The SP+ rankings are based on some magical math which takes into account several factors, such as returning production, recruiting, and recent success. With their No. 19 ranking, TCU has proven that it can be among the top teams in the Big 12 this year and will probably be a pretty formidable foe for any team the Horned Frogs face this season.
But it remains to be seen if the Horned Frogs can contend for a national title once more in 2023.
What Big 12 teams are ranked above TCU in 2023 preseason SP+ rankings?
The Horned Frogs of TCU have an incredible opportunity to make a jump in the Big 12 rankings this upcoming season. With the 2023 preseason SP+ rankings being released, it looks pretty clear that TCU is looking to move up the list and become one of the top teams in the conference.
Which Big 12 teams are currently ranked above TCU? Well, not very many.
The Oklahoma Sooners sit at No. 14, though they’ll be leaving for the SEC with the No. 9 Texas Longhorns after this coming year.
And that’s it.
The Kansas State Wildcats do come in at No. 22 and then Oklahoma State and Texas Tech are ranked at No. 34 and No. 35 respectively. The Big 12 may not be quite what it was this past season when the conference was indeed pretty good.
