Oklahoma at TCU gets slotted for 11:00am

What did we do to deserve this, Big XII?

NCAA Football: Big 12 Championship-Texas Christian vs Oklahoma Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

Well, there’s nothing else to say but...

What a disappointment.

The most anticipated home game of 2018 for the TCU Horned Frogs and their fans, against an Oklahoma team that will come into town with a 4-1 record, has been slotted for 11:00am. But, don’t worry, that HUGE Texas Tech - Kansas game will be played in the afternoon.

It’s a light schedule for the conference, which has only two games, and apparently neither were very attractive to TV. At least the Frogs will get the national audience, playing on ABC, while the Red Raiders and Jayhawks will settle for FS1 - though, given my druthers, give me cable and 2:30pm any day.

TCU has not defeated the Sooners since 2014, when they knocked off a then-top five squad on their way to a 12-1 season and near playoff berth. The two teams have met four times since then, with OU dominating the last two after the teams played a pair of one score games.

TCU takes on Texas Tech in Fort Worth Thursday night, while Oklahoma has a bye week coming off of their loss to Texas in the Red River Whatever.
