Some of the Big 12's top teams started the season on the wrong foot, but conference play provides an opportunity to turn their seasons around.
Horned Frogs round out top 25
TCU is slotted at No. 25 after defeating SMU 33-3 last week. The Horned Frogs will have a tough test against a Oklahoma team desperate for a win. Power Rankings: Week 4
The Big 12 power rankings mostly held steady this week, but with West Virginia set to host K-State next week, changes could be on the horizon.
The Mountaineers improved to 3-0 in Week 4, and their station in the Big 12 bowl projections improved accordingly.
Wide receivers Chris Platt and John Diarse made explosive plays that stood out in Week 4.
Kenny Hill threw for 452 yards and two second-half touchdowns, including a 75-yarder to John Diarse on the first play after halftime, and TCU pulled away from SMU 33-3 on Friday night.
TCU's defense completes dominating 33-3 win
Nick Orr picks off SMU's Ben Hicks in the final minutes to cap an impressive performance. The Horned Frogs scored the game's final 33 points and didn't allow a score after the Mustangs' opening drive to improve to 3-1.
TCU wins behind strong second half
The Horned Frogs capped off a second half in which they outscored SMU 27-0 with this Trevorris Johnson touchdown run. TCU defeated the Mustangs 33-3.

TCU is taking care of business in the second half at SMU, outscoring the Mustangs 27-0. The Frogs' defense has just been too much for SMU QB Ben Hicks in his second career start and has 10 third-down stops on the night. They face a much harder test next week against Baker Mayfield and a desperate Oklahoma team.
TCU's Hatfield banks in short FG
Brandon Hatfield banks a 25-yard field goal off the right goalpost to give the Horned Frogs a 23-3 lead early in the fourth quarter.
TCU extends lead on Hill's 2nd TD
Kenny Hill tosses his second TD pass of the third quarter, finding Jaelan Austin on a fade route for a 2-yard score and a 20-3 lead over SMU midway through the third quarter.

TCU WR John Diarse joined the program as a grad transfer from LSU this offseason. He made a good career move: Diarse is up to 275 receiving yards this season and is having a huge night against SMU. He's getting the ball a lot more than he did in the run-first LSU offense, whose current wide receivers have combined for just 256 receiving yards after 3 games this season.
TCU strikes on 1st play of second half
Kenny Hill hits John Diarse on a slant that turns into a 75-yard TD 10 seconds into the third quarter for a 13-3 lead.
