Oklahoma State vs TCU: Prediction, Pick, Spread, Football Game Odds, Live Stream, Watch Online, TV Channel

The Big 12’s last two undefeated teams square off as No. 8 Oklahoma State travels to No. 13 TCU with conference championship game implications on the line. The Cowboys outlasted a spirited Texas Tech team 41-31 last week behind 18 unanswered points, with quarterback Spencer Sanders totaling 353 yards and three touchdowns.

TCU followed up its huge win over Oklahoma with a 38-31 victory over No. 19 Kansas. The Frogs, trailing 17-10 early in the third quarter, scored a touchdown with just 1:36 left. Wide receiver Quentin Johnston had a breakout game with 14 catches for 206 yards and a touchdown on a punt return.

The last time these two teams played, Oklahoma State crushed TCU 63-17, handing the Frogs their worst loss in series history. The Cowboys rushed for 447 yards and eight touchdowns against a rotten Frogs defense, including 134 yards and two touchdowns from Dominic Richardson.

Oklahoma State vs. TCU: Need to know

Quarter Battle: Sanders and TCU quarterback Max Duggan were quietly two of the most explosive players in the country. Sanders ranks No. 10 in total offense with 327 yards per game, while Duggan is close behind at No. 19 with 301.8 ypg despite starting the season in a reserve role. Both players are on the periphery of the Heisman conversation after leading their respective teams to undefeated starts and can make some real moves toward national recognition with a big performance.

Quick Improvement: TCU has averaged just 5.3 wins per season over the past three years, but already has a five-game winning streak in the Sonny Dykes era. Dykes and his staff have simplified the game and allowed the impressive playmakers on TCU’s roster to go out and execute. The last three games — at SMU, against Oklahoma, at Kansas — were big, emotional games with national attention. However, TCU handled the moment well and gave itself a chance to reach bowl eligibility midway through the season. Most of the Big 12 schedule remains ahead, but the Frogs deserve credit for finding a scheme of offense so quickly.

Dynamic pass: Oklahoma State relied heavily on the ground game during its run to the Big 12 Championship Game in 2021, but Sanders and the receiving corps have taken center stage in 2022. Four different receivers have at least 200 yards, with Braydon Johnson leads at 360 yards 21.2 yards per catch and three touchdowns. Richardson also has 14 catches of his own, so Oklahoma State’s offense will stretch TCU’s defense and force it to make plays in space.
