OU - TCU - 5 plays

A random thing I noted while thinking back over the game yesterday. The Sooners forced 4 TCU turnovers. The last one was inconsequential, with less than a minute to go in the game. The Sooners converted those three turnovers earlier in the game into 0 points. In fact, in each instance, the Frogs held OU to a three and out, with the Sooners netting 18 yards on the nine plays in those three possessions.

  1. 1st qtr, 1st and 10 from the Sooner 24. An out and up by Iglesias results in the first Sooner score. Nice move by Iglesias and pump fake by Bradford.
  2. On the ensuing kickoff, Lendy Holmes chases down Aaron Brown at the Sooner 15. The Sooner D stiffens, and holds TCU to a field goal.
  3. 2nd Quarter TCU fumble on the Sooner 35. The turnover stopped an 11 play, 64 yard drive.
  4. 2nd Qtr TCU goes on 4th down on 4th and 4 from the Sooner 42. Jeremy Kerley is sacked on a little trickeration that goes awry.
  5. 4th and 4 from the Sooner 14, TCU goes for it. An Andy Dalton pass falls incomplete, and another TCU drive yields zero points.

Overall, TCU got the ball into OU territory 9 times, and came up with 10 points. The drives were field goal, punt, fumble, interception, turnover on downs, TD, turnover on downs, punt, interception.
