Player/Group Grade Evaluation
 Quarterbacks C+ Landry Jones (22-40, 244 yd, 2 TD, 1 INT) – Made some key plays that gave Oklahoma the means to win this game, but he certainly helped TCU stay in it as well. An early interception could have been the difference from OU dominating, because until that turnover, the Frogs had no momentum whatsoever. Landry had monster performances against West Virginia and Mountaineers, so I guess ole ‘Stache was due for another hit-and-miss type game.

Blake Bell – No touchdowns, but not a horrible effort. Was 3-4 on first down conversions, though, the one time he failed to move the chains, TCU scored on an 80 yard touchdown pass the ensuing drive.

Running backs B+ Damien Williams (18 car, 115 yd, 1 TD) – Good day for Williams. The Sooner run game has been, for the most part, ineffective recently. It was refreshing to see Williams break off a 66 yard touchdown run, as well as get his first touchdown reception as a Sooner.

Brennan Clay (6 car, 47 yd) – Nice, tough running out of Clay. Really can he do any wrong after scoring the walk-off touchdown against the Pokes in overtime? Knowing OU fans, probably yes, but you have to feel good right now if you are Clay.

Wide receivers C Really nothing too spectacular from the Sooner receivers. Big day for Jalen Saunders (7 rec, 108 yd, 1 TD), but other than the Fresno transfer, not much going. I mean, we saw Damien Williams involved more in the pass game and Sterling/Brown had decent grabs. However, very quiet from Kenny Stills, and things could have been different if #4 had a better Satuday.
Run defense B Not excellent, but the Sooners had one of the better days stopping the run. Oklahoma limited the Frogs to 119 rushing yards on 19 attempts. Trevone Boykin at quarterback gave the Sooners some trouble scrambling with the ball, but OU should be patting themselves on the back after giving up 659 rushing yards combined to the Pokes and Mountaineers.
Pass defense B+ You never like seeing the secondary give up an 80 yard touchdown pass, but felt like it was a solid day. They got burnt a few times, but it was this group that swatted away a game-tying touchdown catch and secured OU a share of the Big 12 title.
Special Teams D Other than Tress Way, horrid day from the special teams. I mean, I’d rather not talk about it.
