The Line: Oklahoma Sooners -11.5 -- Over/Under:
The TCU Horned Frogs and Oklahoma Sooners square off Saturday night at Memorial Stadium.
The TCU Horned Frogs hope to win 10 games for the fourth time in six seasons. Trevone Boykin is completing 65.8 percent of his passes for 3,427 yards, 29 touchdowns and nine touchdowns. Boykin is questionable with an ankle injury. Josh Doctson and Kolby Listenbee have combined for 1,822 receiving yards and 18 touchdowns while KaVontae Turpin has 36 receptions. The TCU Horned Frogs ground game is averaging 231.1 yards per contest, and Aaron Green leads the way with 973 yards and nine touchdowns. Defensively, TCU is allowing 26.2 points and 388.9 yards per game. Travin Howard leads the Horned Frogs with 65 tackles, Josh Carraway has 4.5 sacks and Nick Orr has nine pass deflections.
The Oklahoma Sooners look for another win to remain in the playoff hunt. Baker Mayfield is completing 70.2 percent of his passes for 3,082 yards, 31 touchdowns and five interceptions. Mayfield has 10 passing touchdowns in his last three games. Sterling Shepard and Dede Westbrook have combined for 1,615 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns while Durron Neal has 40 receptions. The Oklahoma Sooners ground game is averaging 214.3 yards per contest, and Samaje Perine leads the way with 972 yards and 12 touchdowns. Defensively, Oklahoma is allowing 19.7 points and 336.1 yards per game. Dominique Alexander leads the Sooners with 82 tackles, Zack Sanchez has four interceptions and Eric Striker has 7.5 sacks.
The Horned Frogs are 1-4 ATS in their last 5 road games and 13-3 ATS in their last 16 games on grass. The Sooners are 5-0 ATS in their last 5 conference games and 4-1 ATS in their last 5 home games. The Horned Frogs are 5-2 ATS in their last 7 meetings.
If Boykin plays, I'm taking TCU and the truckload of points. Yes, Oklahoma is looking good and all, but it seems like everybody is forgetting about TCU and it's ability to put touchdowns on the board quite quickly. IF Boykin plays, I have the points. If not, you have to roll with Oklahoma in a blowout.
