The matchup is going to be one of the best across the entire college football landscape. It’s two top 25 teams duking it out, and Oklahoma State is out to prove that they aren’t pretenders. If they beat TCU, they’ll have many more believers than they already do.
The Cowboys are headlined by their juggernaut offense, but they’ve also scored three touchdowns on the defensive side of the ball, one in every game. Neither unit has been tested so far this season, but TCU quarterback Kenny Hill and defensive-oriented Horned Frog head coach Gary Patterson will give the Cowboys a great measuring stick.
If Oklahoma State can handle TCU, they won’t be assured of the lead in the conference, their biggest game is still Bedlam against the hated Sooners. However, beating TCU would provide a lot of momentum and legitimacy to the case that many are making — that the Cowboys have a College Football Playoff caliber team this year.
