Horned Frogs at Cowboys OddsShark Matchup Report

Oklahoma State Cowboys

Mason Rudolph has played his way into the Heisman Trophy conversation, passing for 1,135 yards and 11 touchdowns with just one interception in Oklahoma State's 3-0 SU and ATS start.

The senior quarterback has been so effective he has yet to take a snap in the fourth quarter this season after being pulled out of the game with comfortable leads in every outing. Oklahoma State's average margin of victory over its last four games is 35 points per game.

Dating back to last season, the Cowboys are 11-1 SU and 9-3 ATS over their last 12 games per the OddsShark College Football Database. The only loss over that stretch came against Oklahoma.

TCU Horned Frogs

Kenny Hill struggled through his first full year as a starter last season, throwing just 17 touchdown passes with 13 interceptions in 2016. Hill has looked great through his first three starts this year with eight touchdowns and two interceptions, though he didn't throw for any touchdowns in his only road start of the year at Arkansas.

TCU is just 2-7 ATS in its last nine games against Big 12 opponents, including last year's 31-6 loss at home to Oklahoma State.

Saturday's total is set at 68.5 points. The OVER is 12-2 in Oklahoma State's last 14 games at home.

Most college football fans and bettors are currently looking at the Big 12 title picture as a two-horse race between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State. TCU would love to prove otherwise, but the Horned Frogs are in the unenviable position of facing both of these powerhouse programs on the road this season.

The Horned Frogs are 12-3 ATS and 8-7 SU in their last 15 games as road underdogs however, so they shouldn't be expected to go down without a fight.
