Holly Rowe, the ESPN sideline reporter, has seen TCU in person enough to know that the Horned Frogs are the real deal.

During a segment with Paul Finebaum on the SEC Network on Friday, Rowe made the case for why TCU would be in the College Football Playoff.

“I’ve seen TCU teams before that you thought were good and they faced stiffer competition, maybe not,” she said. “They are fast and that’s something that we don’t always take into account sometimes. When you see games on TV, you don’t always account for the speed.”

Rowe said that Sonny Dyke’s calm personality is translating to his team and why the Horned Frogs are handling the special season in a positive way.

“TCU just might be in your College Football Playoff,” she said. “So get ready to fear the Frog. Love some purple because I think they’re a fun team with a lot of speed and they’re dynamic.”
