Game Time: 1:00 PM CST | Location: Lloyd Noble Center – Norman, OK | TV: FSSW | Series: Oklahoma leads 21-4 | Game Line: Oklahoma -4

TCU played their sloppiest game of the year their last time out, dropping a tightly contested game at Kansas in the process. The Sooners are coming off of a tough loss of their own, falling by single digits at Texas Tech. Both teams hold tenuous positions in the Top 25 - today’s winning likely stays ranked, while the loser will see their position drop.

For the Frogs, who will be without Jaylen Fisher once again, today’s game is about more than rankings - it’s about establishing their identity on offense and defense, on the road, without one of their stars. The offense, especially, looked discombobulated without Fisher Wednesday - can they find the rhythm that helped them drop 80+ on a stout defense like Baylor’s a week ago?

For Oklahoma, life without Trae Young has been... well, pretty good. The Sooners have a clear identity and do a lot of things well on both ends of the floor. They will look to defend their home court in this crucial early-season matchup for both teams.

Join us as we follow the Frogs in Norman this afternoon!
