The big advantage? Their competition to this point. While TCU has been in games with Arkansas and SMU, OSU had blown out three bad football teams. The Frogs will learn a lot about their team this week, though, as they go up against a high-powered OSU offense.
“You know, I’m excited about my team,” Patterson said Monday during the Big 12 coaches conference call. “Got ourselves to 3-0. Got ourselves in position where we feel like we have a very mature football team. Excited for the challenge. You always want to play against very good people. You can find out what you’re like, what your level is, what you can play like. Definitely Oklahoma State puts us in that category.”
The Frogs are used to being an underdog, and they’re ready to be one again.
"For me, personally, my whole life, I've been an underdog, so it's nothing new," said TCU senior cornerback Ranthony Texada, "and that's what TCU thrives off of, is being the underdog. And that's what TCU is."
The Frogs are double-digit dogs to OSU.
Oklahoma State is a 12-point home favorite in Stillwater at sportsbooks monitored by OddsShark.com. In their last 36 home games played in the month of September, the Cowboys are 33-3 SU.
