STILLWATER — The Big 12 Conference race was supposed to run through the state of Oklahoma.
Maybe it still will. But Saturday afternoon at Boone Pickens Stadium, TCU created a potential detour.
Unfazed once again in the face of a sellout crowd, the No. 16-ranked Horned Frogs were mostly dominant in their 44-31 victory over No. 6 Oklahoma State, crashing the Big 12 Bedlam Party scheduled for Nov. 4 and possibly crushing the Cowboys’ hopes for a spot in the College Football Playoff.
“We want to be relevant,” TCU coach Gary Patterson said. “You want to win enough to get noticed. It was also an advantage that no one was giving us a chance. We play better that way.”
