Oklahoma State seems to always get to this point of the season with something to play for (well maybe not always but a lot recently). They have just one conference loss so I think their path is simple.
Just win their final two games, on the road against TCU and Oklahoma and they are conference champs.
I really thought TCU could be a sleeper this season with an improved defense and an offensive system that was about more than the guy who was running it.
It just never really came together though they are off a resounding beatdown of Baylor last week. For whatever that is worth now.
Who knows what we would be writing about OSU if they had not let that game against Central Michigan get away. As it is this is a very strong offensive team that is led by one of the most underrated quarterbacks in the country.
With a couple of games to go Mason Rudolph has already thrown for more TDs than he did a year ago with supporting stats that show he is elite at the position this year and a great pro prospect.
They are 6th in the nation throwing which is all the more impressive when you see they are not good at running the ball – just 101st.
On defense the Cowboys like to play aggressively.
They are able to get some talent on this side of the ball and have a knack for developing pros on the line and in the secondary but their style means they are prone to giving up big plays.
The defense has its moments but it is not going to shut anybody down.
When they can get those impact plays they look as good as anybody out there.
TCU Horned Frogs
TCU needs one more win for bowl eligibility and they should get it 3 medium games on the remaining schedule.
This year has been all about close but not close enough as three of their four losses have been by 6 points or less.
The same goes with the offense which has been very good (12th in yards) but not as dynamic as it was a year ago (24th in points). Kenny Hill took control at QB but he is not as accurate or as much of a threat to run as Trevone Boykin was.
Everything is just a little bit downgraded this season.
On defense this has not been a very Gary Patterson team. They are solid against the run but get torched through the air and give up a lot of points, nearly 30ppg.
Josh Carraway is pretty good on the edge but hasn’t really advanced much as a senior.
Aaron Curry, who started his career at Nebraska is a very good player on the DL but they are missing dynamic playmakers in the secondary.

Free Week 12 NCAA Football Prediction
I think the Cowboys have to be a strong underdog consideration in this one. They can move the ball and will challenge TCU to be on top of their game both offensively and defensively.
The key will be not looking too far ahead to Bedlam in a couple of weeks. One thing at a time.
4* Free NCAA Betting Pick: Oklahoma State +4.5
The line on this one seems funny as it just begs you to take the Cowboys.
I think they are the better team and without Boykin, or someone similar to really bridge the gap for TCU it is going to be tough to get over, when there is not much at stake.
Look for a back and forth game that sails over the total.
