Through 3 Quarters
The Oklahoma Sooners were expected to win this one, and they are just one quarter away from fulfilling that expectation. After three quarters it's looking more and more like their high-powered offense is just too much for the TCU Horned Frogs as the Sooners lead 27-7. Oklahoma has come by their advantage honestly, as they have outgained TCU 428 yards to 226.
Oklahoma has been relying on WR Marvin Mims, who has caught four passes for two TDs and 132 yards, and QB Spencer Rattler, who has passed for two TDs and 308 yards on 19 attempts. This receiving effort made it the first game that Mims has posted more than 100 yards receiving.
Oklahoma has yet to string together two consecutive wins, but this may be their chance. For now, all signs point to yes.

What to Know
The TCU Horned Frogs and the Oklahoma Sooners have had some time off and are no doubt ready to hit the field. TCU and Oklahoma will face off in a Big 12 battle at noon ET Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium. Coming off of a loss in a game they were expected to win, the Horned Frogs nows face the more daunting task of proving themselves against unfavorable odds.
TCU came up short against the Kansas State Wildcats two weeks ago, falling 21-14. What made the defeat an especially bitter pill for TCU to swallow was that they had been favored by 11 points coming into the contest. No one had a standout game offensively for TCU, but they got one touchdown from QB Max Duggan.
Meanwhile, it may have taken quadruple overtime to finish the job, but the Sooners ultimately got the result they were hoping for two weeks ago with a 53-45 victory over the Texas Longhorns. Yes, you read that final score correctly. And yes, they were playing football. RB T.J. Pledger was the offensive standout of the matchup for Oklahoma, rushing for two TDs and 131 yards on 22 carries.
Oklahoma's defense was a presence as well, as it embarrassed Texas' offensive line to sack QB Sam Ehlinger six times. Leading the way was LB Nik Bonitto and his two sacks. Those were the first sacks for Bonitto this season.
TCU is now 1-2 while Oklahoma sits at 2-2. A couple offensive numbers to keep in mind before kickoff: The Horned Frogs rank 16th in the nation when it comes to yards per game, with 478 on average. The Sooners have displayed some offensive firepower of their own as they enter the game with 390.3 passing yards per game on average, good for second best in the nation.
