The Line: Oklahoma State Cowboys +4 -- Over/Under:
The TCU Horned Frogs and Oklahoma State Cowboys play Saturday at Boone Pickens Stadium.
The TCU Horned Frogs look to remain undefeated by winning their eighth straight road game. Trevone Boykin is completing 66.7 percent of his passes for 2,927 yards, 28 touchdowns and five interceptions. Boykin has seven touchdown passes in his last two games. Josh Doctson and Kolby Listenbee have combined for 1,639 receiving yards and 17 touchdowns while KaVontae Turpin has 25 receptions. The TCU Horned Frogs ground game is averaging 226.8 yards per contest, and Aaron Green leads the way with 699 yards and eight touchdowns. Defensively, TCU is allowing 24.5 points and 388.6 yards per game. Travin Howard leads the Horned Frogs with 55 tackles, Josh Carraway has 4.5 sacks and Corry O'Meally has seven pass deflections.
The Oklahoma State Cowboys look to remain unbeaten by beating their fifth ranked team since 2013. Mason Rudolph is completing 63.9 percent of his passes for 2,482 yards, 12 touchdowns and eight interceptions. Rudolph has three touchdown passes in his last three games. David Glidden and James Washington have combined for 1,216 receiving yards and seven touchdowns while Marcell Ateman has 24 receptions. The Oklahoma State Cowboys ground game is averaging 151.3 yards per contest, and Chris Carson leads the way with 365 yards and three touchdowns. Defensively, OSU is allowing 23.1 points and 357 yards per game. Jordan Sterns leads the Cowboys with 64 tackles, Ramon Richards has two interceptions and Emmanuel Ogbah has nine sacks. Jhajuan Seales is questionable.
The Horned Frogs are 12-4 ATS in their last 16 conference games and 2-5 ATS in their last 7 road games. The Cowboys are 6-1 ATS in their last 7 conference games and 5-1 ATS in their last 6 games overall.
TCU is a different team on the road than when playing at home. Oklahoma State should also be extremely motivated after getting blown out by the Horned Frogs last season. The Cowboys are no stranger to knocking off highly ranked teams and with their improved defense, I think they have a shot here.
I'll take OK State and the four free points, as I think the Cowboys can win outright.
