Rattler, Sooners offense faces big test in TCU defense | The Franchise OKC

Can Patterson confuse the young QB?

Often lauded as one of the most fundamentally sound defenses in the Big 12, Rattler will have a lot to digest on Saturday.

“They’ve got a great, great defense. A lot of good players on that side of the ball,” Rattler said. “I’m sure Coach Patterson has a bunch of things ready for us so you know we just got to be ready for whatever.”

The offensive line play could go a long way to helping Rattler stay protected and give him enough time to pick apart the TCU secondary.

Riley said he was pleased with how the offensive line played against Texas, but he’s challenged them to take another step forward on Saturday.

“Proud of the way those guys have played against Texas and we’ve pushed them to take it even to another level this week against a TCU front that’s always good, always active, always tough to figure out,” Riley said.

Riley has a ton of respect for his opponent Saturday.

“It’s impressive. I think (Patterson’s) got a lot of things in place. They’ve got a type of player that they identify and go recruit and develop. He knows exactly what he’s looking for within his system, and I think the continuity of obviously him being there and several members of that staff for a long time is apparent. I think he’s done a good job, in my opinion, of sticking to his core principles, but he certainly has adapted too.”

Though no reason was giving, it appears to be COVID-related.

The Big 12 has announced that TCU is postponing its next two weeks of competitions “in accordance with Big 12 Conference volleyball match interruption guidelines.” That decision directly impacts Texas, which was supposed to travel to Fort Worth next Friday and Saturday. The Big 12 also called off this week’s matches between TCU and Kansas.

She will be hosting a pop up at Dutch’s Saturday before the game. You might want to swing by.

She went on to explain how she’s excited to see how the students are excited to learn about the history of the university. Rare items, like those with the Flying T symbol, are difficult to keep in stock.

“It’s a way to focus my energy and grow excitement among students who have been disconnected during this year,” Dixon said.

The big question people wanted to know was where she got all of this TCU stuff.

Dixon started out by selling items from her own collection and also finding other items at estate sales. She’s been collecting for a couple of years and has been fortunate enough that a few alumni have reached out to her and gave her some good deals on items.
