He lays it all out there for everyone to see.

Anyway, you are likely here because you want the betting odds, TV schedule and live stream information for this bad boy.

There were no smoke and mirrors.

TCU must play at Oklahoma.

Unfortunate to his argument, these Horned Frogs can no longer be overlooked. He knows sixth-ranked Oklahoma State has as well. He has thrown for at least 300 yards in each of Oklahoma State's first four contests. It had a 10-point, third quarter lead over FSU before the Seminoles rallied to win.

But an offensive approach that attempts to keep Oklahoma State's high-powered offense off the field may be the best strategy Saturday. But this was a patented Patterson win by what is looking like an increasingly strong Patterson team.

Mike Gundy was the obvious coach for Oklahoma State after Les Miles moved on to LSU in 2005. A presumed rematch in the Big 12 title game could serve as a virtual CFP play-in game for one or even both. And in trying to stage a comeback, the stats are going to get skewed.

Oklahoma State is projected to win as many as 10 games in the 2017 season, according to the FPI projections, and given a 2.6 percent chance of winning out and a 21.9 percent chance of winning the conference.

Georgia. The Bulldogs made a resounding statement that they are the class of the SEC East with a 31-3 thumping of Mississippi State. Two tail backs lead the charge for TCU.

"Felt like there were a lot of missed opportunities out there", Rudolph said. Not every one, of course.

"I was impressed with him", Spencer said.

Still, Rudolph will be able to rely on college football's most risky receiver corps against the Horned Frogs: James Washington (122 yards per game, 28 yards per catch), Marcell Ateman (78 yards per game, 18 yards per catch), Jalen McCleskey (60 yards per game, 15 yards per catch) and Dillon Stoner (47 yards per game, 13 yards per catch). They played Iowa in a primetime game. Ateman has the same amount of catches with another 235 yards and three end zone appearances. Having watched TCU hog the ball for 39 minutes and rush for 238 yards, Spencer gazed down at a stat sheet through his professorial, wire-rimmed glasses and said, "The highs aren't high enough in what we do, and the lows are way too low". Oklahoma, 28th among states in population, sits forever above Texas, No. 2 in that category while No. 1 in self-image, which does create neighborly complications. TCU quarterback Kenny Hill played efficiently, completing 22 of 33 passes for 228 yards with a touchdown. TCU is slated for a trip to Stillwater, Oklahoma, on Saturday for a matchup with the Cowboys and their explosive offense. The versatility of Snell and KaVonte Turpin as running and receiving options out of the backfield, the threat of Shaun Nixon and Jaelan Austin in the middle of the field, and Reagor and Desmond White up top and out deep will also help the Horned Frogs go blow-for-blow in Saturday's Big 12 slugfest. Larkin was successful in thwarting all of TCU's goal attempts and it turned out to be her own team that spoiled her ideal day. His record after losing seasons speaks for itself, as Dan Wolken of USA Today pointed out.

TCU's win won't shove them to the top of the Big 12, but it means that Oklahoma's grip on the conference isn't as tight as expected.

With the performance of these teams, will they remain as the four teams that get into the College Football Playoff? They're a legit, top-20 team.
