No. 25 TCU begins its third season of Big 12 play when it hosts No. 3 Oklahoma on Saturday at 2:30 p.m.
Just in time for Oklahoma’s big-play passing game, the TCU secondary had a sharp practice following Saturday’s victory against SMU.
This is the type of death-match challenge most teams don’t survive. There is, however, something about this TCU team that says this two-week stretch will not break them and turn them into Big 12 dust.
The TCU Horned Frogs have quietly built a decent resume early in the college football season. The Oklahoma Sooners seem to be the only thing standing in the way of a national ranking for the Frogs and, as we've learned from seasons past, OU had better be ready for a slugfest on Saturday afternoon.
If Oklahoma has its eyes on the inaugural College Football Playoff this season, the Sooners will have to bring its best game each week, especially when they face the big boys of the Big 12.
TCU won in shocking fashion in Norman in 2005, one of only two home losses to non-conference foes the Sooners have suffered during coach Bob Stoops’ 16 seasons at OU Last season, the visiting Horned Frogs pushed OU to the limit before the Sooners won 20-17.
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops said Monday that he doesn't expect sophomore running back Keith Ford to play Saturday at TCU.
