Rematch history says TCU has 50/50 chance of defeating Oklahoma in Big 12 title game

TCU will have the chance to avenge its Nov. 11 loss to Oklahoma on Saturday when the Horned Frogs and Sooners face each other a second time this season in the Big 12 Championship Game.

And history says it will be a coin-flip in determining if TCU can get the job done at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.

As noted by the Oklahoman’s Berry Tramel, 56 rematches have been played in the modern era of college football (post-World War II) that didn’t result in a tie. The loser of game one has gone exactly 28-28.

History in the Big 12 title game alone is less friendly to the Horned Frogs. The loser of game one is 2-4 all-time in previous Big 12 title game rematches. Oklahoma is a perfect 3-0 in those instances.

TCU has never played in a Big 12 Championship Game, as the contest was not held from 2011-2016. Oklahoma defeated Nebraska in the most recent game played in 2010.
