After allowing 48 points from Texas two weeks ago, the Sooners fired defensive coordinator Mike Stoops. Ruffin McNeill will be the will be the defensive coordinator for the rest of the season. “At the end of the day, I felt like we needed a new voice,” coach Lincoln Riley said. Oklahoma has given up 27.3 points per game this season, but 40.5 PPG in their last two games. A change was needed.

TCU has dropped three of the last four games, including a 17-14 loss to Texas Tech last week. They failed to cover the spread as a 7.5-point favorite. In fact, they haven’t covered the spread in their last three outings. The Horned Frogs haven’t turned the ball over too many times to consider them a menace for Oklahoma. Sophomore Shawn Robinson has thrown a combined eight interceptions in his last five games and to make it worst he’s dealing with a shoulder injury.
Oklahoma has dominated the series recently, winning eight of the last ten contests against TCU. They have won by a 22.0 point average in the previous two games against the Frogs. Even with a subpar defense like the Sooners have, their offense should carry them to another win inside the Big 12. What’s the play? Oklahoma -7.
