NORMAN â€” We should have all expected a game like this â€” coming right after a great win on the road at Notre Dame and right before the Red River Rivalry next Saturday at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The Oklahoma Sooners didnâ€™t play very well, but a win is a win at this point in the season. The Sooners are still undefeated after a lackluster 20-17 victory over â€¨Texas Christian on Saturday night at Owen Field.
The highlight of the day was Brennan Clayâ€™s 76-yard touchdown run late in the fourth quarter that pushed the OU lead to 20-10, but the Sooners still had to hold on as TCU scored late to pull within three.
OUâ€™s defense played well, limiting TCU no zero first downs in the first half, but the Sooners only led 13-0. The Horned Frogs finally got their offense going in the second half and kept the game close.
