If Houston wins Saturday, preventing TCU from reaching its third consecutive BCS bowl, the Horned Frogs (9-2) are most likely headed to the San Diego County Credit Union Poinsettia Bowl, two sources at TCU said Wednesday. TCU would play Western Athletic Conference champion Louisiana Tech (8-4) at 5 p.m. Dec. 21 at Qualcomm Stadium on ESPN. The No. 18 Frogs finish the regular season against UNLV (2-9, 1-5) at 1:30 p.m. Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
TCU has twice played in the Poinsettia bowl. The Frogs beat Northern Illinois 37-7 in 2006 and defeated Boise State 17-16 in 2008.
