TCU News: “It looks like he’s got a chance to be a really good player.”

You don’t want Lincoln Riley sniffing around your QB, LOL. But he sure does like Mad Max.

Oklahoma’s Lincoln Riley impressed with what he’s seen from TCU’s Max Duggan | The Star-Telegram

No Lincoln, you can’t have him as a grad transfer in 2022.

“You can see his progress throughout the year and making good decisions,” said Riley, who has coached the past two Heisman Trophy-winning quarterbacks.

“He seems like a — at least from the outside — looks like a tough kid, competitor. It looks like he’s got a chance to be a really good player.”

Riley will get a firsthand look at Duggan on Saturday. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. at the Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman.

Duggan is coming off the best game of his young career, leading the Frogs to a 33-31 victory at Texas Tech on Saturday. He completed a career-high 25-of-42 passes for 323 yards with two touchdowns and no interceptions.

CeeDee Lamb’s status for TCU game ‘up in the air’ per Lincoln Riley | Sooners Wire

We certainly wish the best of health for one of the country’s best wide receivers, but after watching the Sooners’ offense struggle without him, I definitely recommend sitting one more week just to be safe.

Per Lincoln Riley, Lamb’s availability for this week’s game against TCU is “up in the air”. Without Lamb, multiple wide receivers stepped up against Baylor, including two touchdowns from true freshman, Austin Stogner and one touchdown caught by true freshman, Theo Weese.

Lamb was just named to the Biletnikoff semifinal list today and is the only Big 12 representative on the list.

On the season, Lamb has 983 yards receiving on just 44 receptions, including 13 touchdowns.

OU football: Quick primer on Oklahoma-TCU | Norman Transcript

There’s actually quite a bit at stake for the Sooners Saturday.

Perspective: OU can clinch a spot in the Big 12 title game with a victory.

3 players to watch

• 15 Max Duggan (6-2, 190; Fr. QB): He was 25 of 42 for 323 yards in TCU’s 33-31 win at Texas Tech on Saturday.

• 6 Darius Anderson (5-11, 212; Sr. RB): It seems like Anderson has been around a long time. He’ll be TCU’s primary ball carrier, but his numbers haven’t been great lately. His last 100-yard game was Sept. 28 against Kansas.

• 7 Trevon Moehrig (6-2, 208; So. S): OU’s Jalen Hurts has been susceptible lately to timely mistakes. Watch out for Moehrig, who has four interceptions and nine pass breakups this season.

The Frogs struggled to shoot the ball, but a strong defensive effort earned them the win.

Kevin Samuel became the first TCU player in 25 years with three consecutive double-doubles to start a season, with a career-high 19 points and 11 rebounds in the Horned Frogs’ 65-54 win over Air Force on Monday night.

RJ Nembhard added 15 points and five assists while Francisco Farabello had 11 points for the Horned Frogs, who have started 3-0 in each of Jamie Dixon’s four seasons at his alma mater.

Air Force (2-2) got within one point with 7:45 left, after trailing by as many as 14 in the second half, before Nembhard had a layup to start a game-ending 13-3 run.
