[STREAM@LIVE!!]*SMU vs TCU LIVE NCAA Week 4 Coverage On Saturday Night 24 September 2022
The TCU Horned Frogs watched the action from their couches last weekend, but are set to take to the field. They will head out on the road to face off against the SMU Mustangs at noon ET Saturday at Gerald J. Ford Stadium. The contest is expected to be a close one, with TCU going off at just a 2.5-point favorite.
You can't lose the matchup if you win every quarter, and that was precisely the Horned Frogs' strategy against the Tarleton State Texans two weeks ago. TCU was fully in charge, breezing past Tarleton State 59-17 at home. The game was pretty much decided by the half, when the score had already reached 38-7.
Meanwhile, SMU came up short against the Maryland Terrapins last week, falling 34-27. WR Rashee Rice put forth a good effort for the losing side as he caught 11 passes for 193 yards.
TCU's win lifted them to 2-0 while SMU's loss dropped them down to 2-1. We'll find out if TCU can add another positive mark to their record or if the Mustangs can shake off the defeat and take the spring out of TCU's step.
It will be an all-Texas rivalry showdown when the undefeated TCU Horned Frogs put their perfect start on the line when they go on the road to take on the SMU Mustangs in a Week 4 college football matchup kicking off on Saturday, September 24 at 9 a.m. PT/12 p.m. ET with a live TV broadcast on ESPNU.

Conference play around the college football landscape is picking up with the arrival of the final weekend in September. Saturday's Week 4 action is full of top-25 teams making their conference game debuts for the 2022 season. Often accompanying that familiarity are tighter games and closer scores as teams with more intimate knowledge of one another serve as better litmus tests than the cannon fodder of nonconference play.
In all, three conference games will feature a pair of top-25 teams trying to get an early leg up in the standings. There's plenty to prove for the likes No. 10 Arkansas, No. 11 Tennessee and No. 21 Wake Forest as they seek more respect within their respective divisional races against ranked conference opponents. In the Big Ten, No. 3 Ohio State and No. 4 Michigan will try to keep strong starts going against teams they've dominated in recent years. Capping off the evening is a Big 12 battle between No. 6 Oklahoma and Kansas State in what has become a trap game for the Sooners lately.
