Next 4 Games are Huge

Coming down the home stretch of the regular season, it's no secret that the Frogs have their sights set square on reaching Omaha and the College World Series. With a record of 34-9, a dominant pitching staff and a lineup that has exceeded expectations, they definitely have the weapons to make that goal a reality.

Playing at home is an advantage for many teams, but especially TCU, who has an 18-3 record at Lupton Stadium. Being able to play their Regional and possibly even Super Regional games in Fort Worth would make their road to Omaha at bit less daunting, but to earn that right it's imperative that they tackle their next four games...all of which will be played on the road. With a road series against New Mexico (RPI: 33) and a Tuesday-nighter at Texas State (RPI: 39), these are the last chances for the Frogs to register wins that could boost their own RPI, which is 16 as of now.

Beyond that, TCU's remaining eight regular season games are against Air Force (RPI: 263), UT-San Antonio (168) and Cal State-Bakersfield (177). Even winning those games could hurt the Frogs.
