Only 1 CBS Sports analyst picks TCU to beat Oklahoma straight up

Barrett Sallee is the only CBS Sports analyst to pick TCU straight up against Oklahoma. Every single CBS Sports analyst picked TCU to cover the 7.5 spread, though.

You’d be hard pressed to find someone who doesn’t think TCU-Oklahoma is going to be close. Just about everyone who covers college football for a living is going to be watching this game, and everyone agrees that it’s going to be an extremely tight contest.

However, it’s tough to understand the almost-universal assumption that Oklahoma is going to win. The Horned Frogs have arguably the strongest defense in the Big 12. The Longhorns held the Sooners to 29 points and almost won, if the Horned Frogs can hold the Sooners to a similar amount they can absolutely win. TCU’s current offense isn’t at the level that it was with Josh Doctson and Trevone Boykin, but they can still score. This game will be all about Baker Mayfield and how the Horned Frogs defend him.
