Big 12 action pins the Oklahoma Sooners on the road against the TCU Horned Frogs on Saturday.
The Sooners have been knocked out of the Top 25 and will try to do the same to the Horned Frogs here with a win.
Many have already said the Sooners season is over.
Losses to Houston and Ohio State have them out of the Top 25 after starting the season off with many aspirations of a BCS Playoff spot.
However, ask Oklahoma what they think of their season and they’d tell you it’s just getting started. The Sooners will have a chip on their shoulder in Big 12 play and a win over a ranked opponent here would be a solid start.
Oklahoma is having no issue offensively. They have averaged 35.3 points per game and QB Baker Mayfield continues to be productive.
Mayfield has thrown for 793 yards and added 7 touchdowns to his credit.
The Sooners have 10-5 series lead and took the last meeting in 2015 30-29.
#19 TCU Horned Frogs
The Horned Frogs have to take it a little insulting they are underdog in this spot.
Ranked and at home, the Horned Frogs enter as 3.5 point underdogs to a 1-2 team.
TCU enters play with a loss already under their belts to Arkansas and they know another one would put them in the same category as Oklahoma, out of the Top 25 and out of the BCS Playoff contention.
The Horned Frogs, like Oklahoma, have had no issue putting up points. TCU has averaged 42.8 points per game and QB Kenny Hill has been about dynamic as one can get.
Hill has thrown for just under 1500 yards and added 6 touchdowns. On the ground he has 166 yards and has added 6 more touchdowns.
Look for Hill to really force the issue here and take some chances down field as this has a similar feeling of the Ohio State-Oklahoma game. TCU is a bit faster than the Sooners which will give them an edge, especially when in the open field.
