This game was all kinds of weird.

The fourth ranked Oklahoma Sooners fell short in Fort Worth, Texas, which put in end to their perfect season. The 25th-ranked TCU Horned Frogs stunned OU, 37-33, in one of many upsets this weekend.

Oklahoma went down 14-0 early, but responded with two touchdowns in the last four minutes of the first quarter.

The back-and-forth battle continued throughout the game, as neither team could gain an advantage heading in to the fourth quarter.

Trevor Knight, who passed for 309 yards, threw one of his two interceptions early in the fourth quarter that TCU’s Paul Dawson returned 41 yards in to the end zone.

Oklahoma had its opportunities late with multiple second half turnovers, but the Sooners couldn’t find the goal line in the last 24 minutes of the ball game.

Knight completed just 14-of-35 passes, but throwing a 75 yard bomb to Sterling Shepard for a touchdown.

Knight and the offense struggled to find a rhythm, though, he ran the ball 13 times for 61 yards. Samaje Perine led the team in rushing with 87 yards and three scores.

TCU somehow overcame 14 penalties, as well as three turnovers, to win this ball game by four points. After two seasons of losing close games to Oklahoma, TCU finally got its revenge and their program earned a huge win.

Oklahoma will no doubt drop in the rankings heading in to next weekend’s Red River Showdown.

OU will hopefully have Keith Ford, Charles Walker, and Matt Dimon back in the rotation as they face an always inspired Texas Longhorns team in Dallas.

The Sooners will only play two more road games this season (Iowa State and Texas Tech), but this hinders the Oklahoma Sooners’ chances at a College Football Playoff berth.

TCU should be feeling good about themselves, and there’s no doubt they have all the opportunity in the world to jump in to the playoff picture. Oklahoma, though, will need some major adjustments as this season just took a huge turn.
