TCU coach Gary Patterson tried to tell us all week. Everyone kept asking him about how good Oklahoma State was. While he politely gave the Cowboys the credit they deserved, he also subtly made it clear he thinks he has a pretty good team, too. He's continuing to make a statement with a 20-10 lead in the 3Q. This is no doubt the best defense OSU has seen to date.

TCU is executing Gary Patterson's gameplan perfectly. The Horned Frogs have run 31 plays, to Oklahoma State's 16. And after that forced fumble of Mason Rudolph, the Horned Frogs have the ball again.

With that 86-yard TD reception, Oklahoma State WR James Washington now has 8 receptions of 50 or more yards since the start of last season, which is the most in FBS in that span. The Cowboys have now outscored opponents 66-6 in the first quarter this season, best scoring margin and most points in the 1st quarter in FBS.

One coach who entered the season on the hot seat but has cooled things off a bit? Kliff Kingsbury. His Texas Tech team followed its win over Arizona State with a solid road win at Houston, which it held to 10 points in the first three quarters. The 3-0 Red Raiders still must show they can handle Big 12 offenses, beginning next week against Oklahoma State, but this is an encouraging start for Kingsbury.

TCU CB Ranthony Texada held SMU All-American WR Courtland Sutton to one catch and no yards last week. James Washington just ran by Texada for an 86-yard touchdown reception. TCU has dominated this first quarter. And Oklahoma State leads, just like that.

Cowboys defensive end Tyrone Crawford said he was “shocked,” by President Donald Trump's comments that players should be fired if they “disrespect the flag.” “Obviously shocked. Shocked by the statements and disagree with them but I can't go too far into that without it affecting me,' Crawford said. “So I don't want to talk too much but … those are my brothers that he's talking about and I just disagree with it.”
