Oklahoma State Sells Out Big 12 Opener Against TCU

Football vs. Central Michigan

But an offensive approach that attempts to keep Oklahoma State's high-powered offense off the field may be the best strategy Saturday.

Remember that crafty old schemer, Mr. Patterson from TCU? "We got to get out there and correct some things and just move forward".

Gary Patterson, TCU's 17th-year head coach, prefers it this way. He can defuse your dazzle with his old bale of wiles forged as a Kansas State linebacker and a TCU defensive coordinator. "In all phases, this will be the best team we've played up to this point". Julius Lewis is out for the season following surgery for an injury suffered in practice, Patterson announced after the game.

TCU was nearly magical on third down, converting 11 of 19 attempts - including crucial plays of third-and-7, third-and-11, third-and-15, third-and-6 and third-and-11 plays that either led to scores or at least kept an exhausted Oklahoma State on the defense a while longer. Justice Hill has complimented the passing game nicely by running for 250 yards and three scores. And many of those witnesses filed out at the end of the third quarter.

Oklahoma faces the Cowboys for Bedlam at Oklahoma State on November 4. Some starch went into a game the following week, when TCU (4-0) goes to Oklahoma.

If the Cowboys want to accomplish whatever goals that remain to be achieved during the regular season and beyond, getting stops when the defense has the advantage in down and distance will define its destiny moving forward. The Horned Frogs will need to get to him if they want to slow down OSU's juiced-up offense. He fired for five touchdowns, all in the first half, to key the Cowboys' quick start at Pitt. We just didn't execute it well. He is also Brad Lundblade's backup at center. Well, hell yeah I'd like to have it back.

Predicting Antonio Conte's starting eleven
The lineup looks like Conte has chose to ditch the three-man backline for this game, with only four natural defenders named. Chelsea again, against the run of play grabbed number three through the blistering pace of Morata on 78 minutes.

Baker Mayfield tells Baylor players "You forgot who daddy is" during pregame
Baylor football is coming alive in Waco tonight, pushing Big 12-favorite Oklahoma to the brink heading into the fourth quarter. Later, Flowers lined up as a wildcat quarterback, took the snap and bulldozed into the end zone for a 3-yard touchdown.

Oklahoma State is going to get its offensive numbers, whether they're making it look easy in the lead or trying to come from behind. I mean that sincerely. "So I'm not so naive to think we always have a better plan than everybody each week".

As for Oklahoma State, it's too early to call their playoff hopes dead. A tempo tantrum would not help, and, as Rudolph put it, the patient, intermediate routes just felt all gummed-up as well. Oklahoma State has won four of the five previous meetings since the Frogs joined the league, including a 3-0 mark in Stillwater.

Rudolph, of course, looks like an American dream standing in the pocket with his 6-foot-5 and his 230 pounds and his polish. "Mason made great throws, the receivers ran great routes, and the coaching staff, they did a great job of putting the plays in and helping us succeed".

OSU struck back in a big way on their next possession, as Mason Rudolph went deep to James Washington for an 86-yard touchdown and a 7-6 Cowboys lead with 2:15 left in the first quarter.

"You're not going to get me to say anything outside of the norm here", Patterson said this week. There are a number of other exciting elements to the game, most of which are taking place at the Hall of Fame block party immediately north of the stadium before kickoff.

As he spoke, Oklahoma State had seen the brightness of its comet fade some in this four-month national chase, and it seemed everybody had forgotten about the old master over there talking on the other side.
