College Football Week 14: #12 Oklahoma At TCU

Oklahoma
TCU
Oklahoma State v Oklahoma
TCU v West Virginia
Coaching
Winner Coming of a thrilling overtime victory in Bedlam, Oklahoma is making its case for a BCS bowl bid.
TCU already spoiled one Big 12’s team shot at a national title; now it will try to prevent Oklahoma from getting to a BCS bowl. A win would mean TCU finishes above .500 in conference in its first season in the Big 12
Offense
Winner Landry Jones threw for 500 yards for the second straight week. He attempted a whopping 71 passes,
TCU ranks 70th in yards per play and hasn’t looked very good the last two weeks, failing to crack 300 yards in either contest.
Defense
OU’s offense had to be so good last week because the Sooners allowed 490 yards, getting beat on the ground and through the air.
Winner The Horned Frogs have been solid yardage-wise and as far as turnovers—their 30 takeaways rank 11th in the country.
Special Teams
Winner OU returned a punt 81 yards for a score last week. Their kick returning has been very good.
TCU’s special teams have been average; the Horned Frogs have struggled with punt coverage and punt returning.

The Winner Is

Oklahoma State v Oklahoma
Winner Oklahoma
3 out of 4

Jones and Oklahoma are on quite the roll right now and will likely be too much for TCU to handle.
