The Oklahoma State Cowboys are still a darkhorse to find their way into the College Football Playoff with just one loss and are alone in second place in the Big 12 standings behind the Oklahoma Sooners. They will return home to play the TCU Horned Frogs, which started the post-Gary Patterson era with a big win over the Baylor Bears last weekend.

The Cowboys have everything to play for from a conference championship and Playoff perspective, while TCU needs to win two of their final three games to become bowl eligible. We’ll give the motivational edge to Oklahoma State at home in this spot. The worst unit on the field is the Horned Frogs defense, which ranks No. 124 nationally in yards per play allowed to FBS opponents, and the Cowboys’ offense should do enough to win this game by at least two touchdowns.
