Who is the best team in Texas?

January, 4, 2010
SCOTTSDALE, Ariz. -- It was a question early in TCU Gary Patterson's Sunday news conference and one that drew laughter from Patterson and the assembled media.

Patterson said they were a bunch of good teams in Texas. But what about the undefeated, No. 2-ranked Texas Longhorns?

"You would have to play to find out," Patterson said. "I'm just going to leave it at that. They have a very good football team."

Patterson said he always pulls for teams in Texas unless TCU is playing them because the staff ends up recruiting the same kids and gets to know the parents.
