    Patterson's defense is a formula that opposing coaches in the Big 12, with all those big-play and fast-paced offenses, have been trying to figure out since the Horned Frogs joined the league in 2012. TCU led the nation in total defense five times before that — still second only to Alabama all-time — and has consistently been among the conference's top defenses.
