Can TCU’s Elite Defense Slow Down Oklahoma?

TCU has one of the best defenses in the nation. The Horned Frogs are allowing just 13.9 points per game and have not surrendered more than 14 points in their past four outings. However, TCU will be facing a stiff test this Saturday taking on the Oklahoma Sooners – a team that is averaging 51 points and 673.7 yards in its past three games.

Shark Bites
  • Oklahoma is 7-1 ATS in its last 8 games at home.
  • TCU is 3-1 ATS in its last 4 games against Oklahoma.
  • The total has gone OVER in 5 of Oklahoma’s last 7 games.

TCU and Oklahoma put on an offensive clinic when they met last year, as the two teams combined for 98 points and 1,048 yards. Quarterback Baker Mayfield took over that game, accounting for 329 yards and four touchdowns.

TCU would like to see quarterback Kenny Hill get back on track, as the senior has thrown for just 281 yards with no touchdowns and two interceptions in the past two games. Luckily for Hill, he faces an Oklahoma secondary that is not good, rated 106th in the nation in passing defense.

Of course, Mayfield gets the headlines for the Sooners on offense but the emergence of running back Rodney Anderson has been huge for the team. The sophomore has accumulated 439 rushing yards and five touchdowns in the past three games, which has helped propel OU to 40-plus points on each occasion.
