The College Football Selection Committee has once again shut out the Big 12. While Alabama with one loss crashed the Top 4 party, TCU has been relegated to eighth. The Horned Frogs have a chance to jump up a few spots. They take on undefeated and fourteenth ranked Oklahoma State on Saturday. The week 10 college football spread favors TCU by 5-points to beat Oklahoma State.

Why Bet On #8 TCU (-5.5) to Beat #14 Oklahoma State
Trevone Boykin is leading a squad that has won 16 straight games.
TCU’s offense started picking up the pace in their Week 2 game. The Horned Frogs dominated Stephen F. Austin 70 to 7. But, the defense until recently hasn’t been all that spectacular.
SMU scored 37 against TCU. Texas Tech put up a whopping 52 against the Horned Frogs’ D. Even Kansas State scored 45 against TCU. Since the K-State game, TCU’s defense has been much better. The Horned Frogs beat Iowa State on the road 45 to 21. They beat West Virginia in TCU’s last game 40 to 10. If TCU’s defense improves again, it could put the clamps on Oklahoma State’s offense.
Why Bet On #14 Oklahoma State to Beat #8 TCU (-5.5)
Oklahoma State has scored 128 points in its last two games, raking up 1,245 total yards — including 859 passing.
Like TCU, Oklahoma State is undefeated. Also like TCU, Oklahoma State has a reason to be upset. 5 one loss teams are ranked ahead of the Cowboys in the CFP Rankings. Oklahoma State is wondering what they have to do to get any respect.
TCU is the favorite by close to 6 points over the Cowboys even though Oklahoma State takes on TCU at home. That’s a mistake. Oklahoma State is a very good football team. The Cowboys spotted Texas Tech a 38 to 28 halftime lead before storming back in the second half for an unbelievable 70 to 53 win.
Oklahoma State can win a rough and tumble somewhat low-scoring game (at least for the Big 12!) like when they beat Texas 30 to 27. Or, the Cowboys can win a high-scoring game like in the win over the Red Raiders. Either way, Oklahoma State doesn’t quit. They figure to end TCU’s CFP dreams on Saturday. My final score prediction is Oklahoma State 38, TCU 34.
