No. 6 Oklahoma State, No. 16 TCU set for Big 12 battle

No. 6 Oklahoma State, No. 16 TCU set for Big 12 battle”

Sophomore wide receiver Tyron Johnson said he spent the early portion of his Saturday watching his teammates dismantle Pittsburgh on television and engaging with Oklahoma State fans on Twitter.

Sometimes, Patterson said, that's flinging the football, which Hill did well - 365 yards and four touchdowns - in last Saturday's 56-36 win over SMU.

The Horned Frogs have been too consistent and too good of a road team to face long odds.

Bottom line: Patterson's defense has to get pressure on Rudolph like it has in its first three games this season, totaling eight sacks, the third-highest mark in the Big 12, and continue to be stingy on third down, allowing opponents to pick up first downs on third downs 26.2 percent of the time, the best mark in the conference. The senior Oklahoma State quarterback decimated the Pittsburgh defense in the first half, sprinting out to a 35-0 lead midway through the second quarter. They will have a tough test against their top rival Oklahoma later in the season, but if they find a way there, they could be in good shape. They'll face off on November 4 at Oklahoma State, and possibly again in the Big 12 Championship Game on December 2 in Arlington, Texas.

"It got me excited, it got me just waiting for this game coming up".

Two years ago, an unbeaten TCU team went to Stillwater at 8-0 and fell 49-29, losing All-American receiver Josh Doctson to a wrist injury in the process.

It's that secondary that poses the greatest threat to Oklahoma State's way of life, starting with quarterback Mason Rudolph, second among Big 12 quarterbacks at 378 yards per game with 11 touchdowns and one interception. The Horned Frogs are 14-9 at conference opponents - and 0 for 3 in Stillwater. This is going to be a fun game, but it's all Cowboys.

"They're definitely an into-it crowd", Noteboom said. "They can run by you vertically. It's always packed. Always loud".

One week after Sooners quarterback Baker Mayfield tossed his name into Heisman consideration following Oklahoma's win over then-No.

Rudolph threw for 423 yards in the first half against Pittsburgh, one of 15 school records he holds.

TCU coach Gary Patterson fully understands the challenge of winning in Boone Pickens Stadium come Saturday, and it has nothing to do with history.

The difference between the AP and Coaches Poll weekly rankings and the Football Power Index (FPI) is that the former two polls are a reflection of how well a team is doing in the present, as viewed by a panel of media representatives and head coaches, respectively, while the FPI is meant to be a predictor of a team's performance going forward for the remainder of the season. Receiver James Washington leads active FBS players in receiving yards (3,290), touchdowns (29) and yards per catch (19.9).

And still, the Horned Frogs are a decided underdog.

"The only advantage that we have over Oklahoma State going into the ballgame", Patterson said, "is that we've had to be in two battles and basically they've had only to play until halftime". We have a lot, not including me. "They do a good job with their inside receivers too with [Jalen] McCleskey and No. 17 [Dillon Stoner], so they know the system, do a good job blocking and they do a lot with their tight ends where they split them out on screens and the things they do outside". Senior wide receiver Ty Slanina, who missed the last two games with an undisclosed injury, is expected to return. Running back Kyle Hicks is a game-time decision but "closer to playing than not playing", Patterson said.
