Establishing the running game is the Mason’s key for the face-off against TCU this Saturday.
By this offense running the ball effectively it will keep this explosive TCU offense off the field.
The Sooners saw how effective this gameplay was last week against Baylor. The Bears couldn’t get in a rhythm all game long because the Sooners controlled the ball and the clock.
By having an effective run game it will cause TCU to put more guys in the box to try and stop the run.
That’s when Baker Mayfield and these receivers can hurt you in the passing game.
Defensive key is for the OU defense to stop major play makers like TCU RB Aaron Green and Receiver Kavontae Turpin.
Green with 9 touchdowns and over 500 rushing yards this season makes him dangerous. The Sooners need to make sure the defense bring the pressure and stops the run game.
Turpin on the other hand is a major threat through the air with 6 TDs this season. He is capable of scoring any time he touches the ball. Oklahoma needs to make sure the defense makes those important stops on 3rd downs and Defensive End Charles Tapper makes more impressive sacks.
Baker For Heisman:
Well Baker Mayfield’s Heisman campaign is completely underway with the national media but some of his teammates are a little harder to convince.
He is definitely a contender according to Head Coach Bob Stoops and ESPN but some of his teammates are tough critics.
Center Ty Darlington, Offensive Lineman Nila Kasitati, Fullback Dimitri Flowers and Wide Receiver Sterling Shepard spoke Monday about their feelings toward their QB being a Heisman candidate.
After coming off an incredible win over Baylor the Sooners are preparing to take on TCU Saturday.
The OU defense is preparing to go up against the Horned Frogs who are ranked third nationally in total offense.
However QB Treyvone Boykin isn’t fully healthy after hurting his ankle against Kansas and OU cornerback Jordan Thomas had no issues covering Baylor RB Corey Coleman last weekend.
The defense is looking to have another successful game this weekend and don’t want to over look TCU

Defensive Coordinator Mike Stoops and senior defensive end Charles Tapper are prepared for the face-off against the Horned Frogs but Tapper wants to treat TCU as if it was the number one team in the country.
Tapper said the Horned Frogs would be able to come into Norman, and crush the Sooner hopes of a Big 12 Championship.
Stoops said the team is ready based on what the Sooners have seen on film, and the slight changes the team has made.
The Sooners host TCU this Saturday. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m.
