TCU Has Had Difficulties Vs Oklahoma State

If TCU wants to remain undefeated and put the Big 12 on notice, the Horned Frogs will need to get past Oklahoma State this Saturday. They are 1-4 SU and ATS against the Cowboys since joining the conference back in 2012. The lone win came in 2014 when then-quarterback Trevone Boykin went off for 410 offensive yards.

Shark Bites
  • Oklahoma State rushed for 334 yards and 3 TDs against TCU last season.
  • TCU is 2-7 ATS in its last 9 games against the Big 12.
  • The total has gone OVER in 12 of Oklahoma State’s last 14 games at home.

SMU kept things a little closer than TCU would have liked last week but the Horned Frogs went off for 21 points in the fourth quarter to put that one away. Quarterback Kenny Hill has thrown for eight touchdowns and just two interceptions through the non-conference schedule while sharing the ball among a deep group of receivers. The defense needs to be better than it was against SMU if TCU wants to somehow slow down Oklahoma State.

Oklahoma State has arguably the best offense in the nation, sitting second in points and offensive yards per game. Mason Rudolph thrust himself into the Heisman conversation with 1,135 passing yards and 11 touchdowns to one interception through three games. The defense has kept opponents to just 17.3 ppg, thanks to the necessity of opponents needing to constantly play catch-up.
