TCU looked... very, very good in their win against then-No. 4 Oklahoma on Saturday. The new offense churned out plenty of yardage and quite a few points under Trevone Boykin, and Gary Patterson's defense, a new Big 12 mainstay, took brutal advantage of Sooner mistakes. TCU's Paul Dawson went so far as to return an interception for a 41-yard touchdown in the fourth quarter.
TCU's only road game thus far was an anemic SMU team with a nonexistent crowd, and McLane Stadium will be roaring on Saturday afternoon. Hopefully that will interfere with TCU's offense. If Baylor can move past the loss of DE Jamal Palmer to an ACL tear and hold the Frogs to a small number of points, Bryce Petty and a motivated offense should score enough points to win. Shock Linwood and Johnny Jefferson need to have big games against TCU's strong line.
The series is tied at 51-51-7 all time. Let's change that.
