GUESS WHAT DAY IT IS!!!!
The last time Oklahoma and TCU met, the horned Frogs came up just short of tying the game late, failing on a 4th-and-13 from the Sooners' 15 with 25 seconds left. OU ran out the clock and escaped with a 24-17 win in Fort Worth. The Horned Frogs will try to return the favor Saturday night at Oklahoma's Memorial Stadium.
TCU last played at Oklahoma in 2008. The Horned Frogs were still in the Mountain West Conference and the 35-10 loss to the Sooners was one of two losses TCU had that season. Five years later, the Frogs (2-2, 0-1 in the Big 12) are finally headed back to Norman, Okla..
The only thing standing in the way of the Oklahoma Sooners rolling into the Cotton Bowl next weekend with an undefeated record is the TCU Horned Frogs. A onetime favorite to win the Big Twelve Conference, the Frogs have been struck by the injury bug this season, resulting in a 2-2 (0-1) record as the visit Norman. Don’t take that to mean that TCU isn’t dangerous though. They still have a ton of talent, and a ton of speed, which can result in a ton of points real quick. Just look at the 31 points they hung on SMU in the fourth quarter last weekend.
It has only happened five times during Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops’ 15-year tenure, but occasionally another team comes to town and beats the Sooners on their home field.
Trevone Boykin and the TCU offense seemed to make progress in the second half last week against SMU, but the offense gained just 335 yards even as the scoreboard had a 48 below TCU’s name.
TCU coach Gary Patterson doesn’t typically rattle off a lot of statistics when talking with the media. He’s aware of them, but he’s not big on using numbers to illustrate his points.
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin's innate athletic ability is evident to anyone who has seen him scramble out of the pocket and elude tacklers for a big gain. He can throw and catch passes, too, as was the case when he led the Horned Frogs in receptions against Southeastern Louisiana.
