The TCU Horned Frogs will travel to Boone Pickens Stadium to take on the 10th ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys this Saturday night in College Football action.
The TCU Horned Frogs snapped their 3-game losing streak and improved to 4-5 on the season after upsetting the 12th ranked Baylor Bears, 30-28, this past Saturday. TCU was outstanding on the offensive end against Baylor and was able to hold on for the victory after a 19-yard TD reception by Quentin Johnston gave the Horned Frogs a 30-21 lead with 11:59 left in the 4th quarter. TCU outgained Baylor by a 562-393 margin and won the turnover battle by a 2-1 margin in the victory. Leading the way for the Horned Frogs was QB Chandler Morris who completed 29 of 41 passes for 461 yards & 2 TD.
On the season, TCU is averaging 31.3 ppg on 450.6 total yards per game (254.6 passing yds/g; 196.0 rushing yds/g). Offensively, TCU has been led by the RB duo of Zach Evans (92 att, 648 yards, 5 TD) & Kendre Miller (71 att, 511 yards, 6 TD), however, TCU could be without both as Miller is still listed as questionable after missing the past few games while Evans is listed as doubtful due to a foot injury. QB Chandler Morris (69.6 Comp %, 592 yards, 3 TD) was impressive in his first start last week against Baylor after replacing Max Duggan (64.9 Comp %, 1666 yards, 14 TD, 4 INT; 250 rushing yds, 2 TD). The top receiving threats for the Horned Frogs have been Quentin Johnson (31 rec, 615 yards, 6 TD), Taye Barber (25 rec, 369 yards, 2 TD), Derius Davis (25 rec, 353 yards, TD).
Defensively, TCU is allowing their opponents to average 31.1 ppg on 437.7 total yards per game (236.1 passing yds/g; 201.6 rushing yds/g).
The 10th ranked Oklahoma State Cowboys won their 2nd straight game and improved to 8-1 on the season after defeating the West Virginia Mountaineers, 24-3, this past Saturday. Oklahoma State’s defense dominated West Virginia throughout the game and the Cowboys had no trouble securing the victory after a 12-yard TD reception by Tay Martin gave Oklahoma State a 17-3 lead with 5:30 left in the 3rd quarter. Oklahoma State outgained West Virginia by a 285-133 margin and won the turnover battle by a 2-1 margin in the victory. Leading the way for the Cowboys was WR Tay Martin who had 7 receptions for 63 yards & 2 TD.
On the season, Oklahoma State is averaging 28.8 ppg on 382.4 total yards per game (213.8 passing yds/g; 168.7 rushing yds/g). Offensively, Oklahoma State has been led by RB Jaylen Warren who had 928 rushing yards & 7 TD on 191 carries. QB Spencer Sanders has completed 60.9% of his passes for 1515 yards, 13 TD, & 6 INT while also rushing for 316 yards & 4 TD. The top receiving threats for the Cowboys have been Tay Martin (43 rec, 592 yards, 6 TD), Brennan Presley (29 rec, 345 yards, 5 TD), & Rashod Owens (16 rec, 232 yards).
Defensively, Oklahoma State is holding their opponents to an average of 16.3 ppg on 277.0 total yards per game (190.8 passing yds/g; 86.2 rushing yds/g).
The Horned Frogs are 2-6-1 ATS in their last 9 games overall and 2-7 ATS in their last 9 games as a road underdog. The Cowboys are 7-0 ATS in their last 7 games overall and 4-0 ATS in their last 4 games as a favorite.
TCU picked up an inspired win against Baylor just a few days after long time coach Gary Patterson was let go and must be impressed by the play of their young QB, Chandler Morris, however, it’s hard to imagine the Horned Frogs having another strong performance on the road against a very good Oklahoma State team. TCU had struggled defensively all season as they come into this game ranked just 103rd in scoring defense and as I think Oklahoma State will be able to win the battles on both sides of the ball in this one, I think the Cowboys have no issue winning this one by at least 2 TD’s and that they cover this large home spread. Good Luck!
