TCU is bandaged and bruised, but still fighting | Fort Worth Star Telegram

Boykin is just the latest casualty, but he's also the biggest.

Boykin injured his ankle on TCU’s second snap of the game, and Senior Day’s festive, hug-your-mom atmosphere seemed to go downhill from there. When Boykin did return to the sideline, he was helmet-less and noticeably limping, and he spent the rest of the game helping co-offensive coordinator Doug Meacham nurse backups Bram Kohlhausen and Foster Sawyer to the finish.

How Oklahoma created one of the nation's fiercest offenses | FOX Sports

A massive challenge for the Frogs as they head to Norman is trying to find a way to slow down the Sooners offense.

The return to the Air-Raid offense seems to be working out just fine for Bob Stoops. The 55-year-old Oklahoma head coach went back to the wide-open spread scheme this offseason after going 8-5 in 2014. It was a return to the style of attack Stoops opted for when he was hired at OU in 1999. Back then he hired Mike Leach to implement his offense, and the following season Oklahoma won a national title. This time, it was 32-year-old Leach protégé Lincoln Riley, who has transformed the Sooners into one of the most explosive teams in football and on Saturday night, No. 12 OU proved just how dangerous it is by taking down No. 6 Baylor, 44-34. The Sooners’ win snapped a 20-game home winning streak for the Bears and gave Baylor its first loss ever at McLane Stadium.

TCU dominates inside in overpowering victory over New Orleans | Fort Worth Star Telegram

Games are won in the paint, and this could be a good sign for the Frogs.

For a team that has made the 3-pointer an integral part of its identity for several years, it was work in the paint that defined the TCU women’s basketball team’s first two wins of the year.

Sunday, thanks to 40 points in the lane, TCU beat New Orleans 85-36, tying for the 11th fewest points scored by a TCU opponent.
