Stats & Trends
- Sooners are 4-1 ATS in their last 5 games after accumulating more than 450 total yards in their previous game.
- Horned Frogs are 7-16 ATS in their last 23 conference games.
- Horned Frogs are 8-23 ATS in their last 31 home games.
The Sooners opened as 5.5 point favorites and that line is now currently at 6.5 points in most Vegas shops. Both teams should be ready for this game as neither side has played since the tenth of October. Oklahoma losses were of a combined total of ten points and the two TCU losses were by a combined 11 points so these teams basically are having identical seasons. The Sooners offense with Rattler is much better than the Horned Frogs with Duggan and I suspect Oklahoma will clobber TCU by land and by air.
