Oklahoma traveled to TCU looking to make it seven straight against the Horned Frogs. OU didn’t blink on their first drive looking sharp. TJ Pledger broke off a 13 yard run on the first play of the game, Spencer Rattler connected with Seth McGowan on a 43 yard strike, and the six play drive finished with a 12 yard touchdown run from Pledger. 7-0 Sooners.
The OU defense traveled to Cow Town as well. Marcus Stripling sacked Max Duggan to get the football back in the possession of the Sooners.
Spencer Rattler fired and connected with Theo Wease on a 44 yarder, but Wease couldn’t keep his feet to score a touchdown. Spencer Rattler broke off a 16 yard run following that, but the drive stalled and Gabe Brkic nailed a 40 yard field goal. 10-0 OU.
After a quiet finish to the first quarter, OU came out firing in the second. Spencer Rattler looked deep to Charleston Rambo, but he got tangled up and drew a pass interference call. A couple of plays later, Rattler connected with Marvin Mims on a 50 yard touchdown. His fifth of the season. OU on top 17-0.
TCU finally got on the board taking advantage of a problem that’s plagued the Sooners. Poor tackling. Max Duggan found Pro Wells on a 47 yard gainer when Delarrin Turner-Yell and Justin Broiles missed tackles. That eventually led to Daimarqua Foster finishing a six yard touchdown run off on fourth down. Sooners were still in control 17-7.
That was the halftime score. OU attempted a 54 yard field goal but it clanked off the uprights right before the break.
In the third, Spencer Rattler got it going connecting with Theo Wease on another big gainer. This one was 33 yards. The Sooners labored their way inside the five, but couldn’t capitalize. Gabe Brkic hammered home a 22 yard field goal. Oklahoma on top 20-7 in the third.
The Sooners defense once again did their job, and got the ball back. Pinned inside the five, Chris Murray the transfer from UCLA, saw his first action and helped pop a 25 yard run for TJ Pledger. Following that, Spencer Rattler hit Mims on 61 yard touchdown strike. OU on top 27-7.
Another series, another stop for the Sooners on defense. OU added a 32 yard Gabe Brkic field goal to take a 30-7 lead on their next drive.
As the game dwindled down, TCU worked their way down the field. Max Duggan found Pro Wells on an 11 yard touchdown. That made it 30-14 Sooners. OU recovered the onside kick.
OU would add a 30 yard field goal from Gabe Brkic, his fourth of the day, which was a school record. Sooners on top 33-14.
Oklahoma picked up the 33-14 win over TCU. Marvin Mims finished with four catches for 132 yards and two touchdowns. Mims is the first OU wide receiver with a 100 yard receiving game this season. Spencer Rattler finished 13-22 for 322 yards, two touchdowns and no interceptions. TJ Pledger had 22 carries for 122 yards.
