Have offense, will travel to TCU

(Continued)

NORMAN —

“You lose a game and then people think you can’t coach, you can’t throw, you can’t block, you can’t catch, you can’t do all this stuff on offense,” quarterback Landry Jones said. “We just went back to the drawing board and went back to work, and all of that stuff paid off for us. I don’t know if we drastically changed anything. We might have tweaked some stuff here or there on what we were doing, but I think just the hard work and the determination that we’ve put into this offense has really started to pay off for us.”

You could argue this is the best OU’s offense has looked since it set NCAA records in 2008.

The 12th-ranked Sooners (9-2, 7-1 Big 12) will need it to be hitting on all cylinders when they face TCU (7-4, 4-4) at 11 a.m. Saturday at Amon Carter Stadium.

OU’s special teams have played well, but a leaky defense isn’t the reason the Sooners still have a chance to win its eighth Big 12 title since 2000.

The difference between the Horned Frogs and the last four opponents is TCU can actually play some defense. For OU’s offense, it will be facing its toughest test since Notre Dame.

“I think we have a lot of momentum behind us,” fullback Trey Millard said. “We’ve had a lot of good plays — a lot of big plays — when we’ve needed them. We need to keep the momentum going. It’s easy to make plays when you’ve got everything going right for you.”
