After 13 weeks of college football, it is finally conference championship week. In the Big 12 title game, there is a contest between two Big 12 teams powerhouses. These teams are the TCU Horned Frogs and the Oklahoma Sooners. Both teams started the season with bowl game expectations but no one expected TCU to be competing for a conference championship. TCU was unranked in the preseason rankings and was expected to finish in the middle of the Big 12 standings. Oklahoma, on the other hand, started the season with the expectations of competing for a national championship. If Oklahoma wins this Saturday, the Sooners will be a lock to make the college football playoff.
The TCU Horned Frogs are currently 10-2 and are looking to prove that they are worthy of a Big 12 championship. The Horned Frogs looked poised to potentially go undefeated this season before getting upset by Iowa State about a few month ago. Now, the Horned Frogs are ranked the 11th best team in college football according to the AP poll and a victory over Oklahoma would propel them back into the top ten.
TCU’s success is due to quarterback Kenny Hill. So far this season, Hill has 19 touchdowns with only five interceptions. Hill has been extremely accurate in the pocket this season and has a completion percentage of 66.6 to prove it. Last season, Hill threw 13 interceptions and was pretty poor in the realm of ball security. However, those issues look to be behind Hill and TCU is in title contention as a result.
The Oklahoma Sooners started off their season extremely well and defeated a top five ranked Ohio State team in their second game of the season. The Sooners carried that momentum towards a 4-0 record and looked like a favorite to win the NCAA championship. However, Oklahoma was upset by Iowa State which damaged their 2017 title hopes. Since then, the Sooners have won seven straight games and are once again competing for a national title.
Leading Oklahoma is none other than senior quarterback Baker Mayfield. This season, Mayfield has thrown for 37 touchdowns and over 4,000 yards along with five interceptions. This year, Mayfield has already carried his team to a 38-20 victory over TCU and he will look to duplicate that performance on Saturday. If Mayfield gets going, expect TCU’s defense to struggle once again.
As for my prediction, I have to side with Oklahoma. I think that Mayfield will be too much for this TCU defense to handle. TCU is a solid team and I expect the Horned Frogs to hang around but I think Mayfield will make some clutch plays down the stretch and lead the Sooners to a close victory.
