UNDATED (AP) — No. 15 TCU gets another chance for the Big 12 against No. 4 Ohio State. The Horned Frogs and Buckeyes will play Saturday night at the home stadium of the NFL’s Dallas Cowboys. That is where Ohio State won the national championship four seasons ago after jumping over Big 12 co-champs Baylor and TCU for the fourth and final spot in the inaugural College Football Playoff. Oklahoma beat the Buckeyes last season.
NORMAN, Okla. (AP) — Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray is a dual threat. The Major League Baseball draft pick signed this summer with the Oakland A’s for nearly $5 million. However, Murray returned as quarterback for the Sooners and has shifted the focus back to football. He’s completed 64 percent of his passes for 515 yards and five touchdowns. He’s also rushed for two TDs in the two wins for the fifth-ranked Sooners.
LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) — Kansas ended a 46-game road losing streak last Saturday at Central Michigan. Now, the Jayhawks are preparing to face Rutgers at home with a chance to win back-to-back games for the first time since 2011, and the opportunity to win consecutive games against the Football Bowl Subdivision since Mark Mangino was on the sideline.
UNDATED (AP) — Iowa State has found a replacement for its canceled opener. The Cyclones will host Incarnate Word on Dec. 1 unless Iowa State qualifies for the Big 12 title game or Incarnate Word reaches the FCS playoffs. Iowa State will pay Incarnate Word $300,000 for the game and provide use of a charter aircraft. Iowa State and South Dakota State played only a few minutes before their Sept. 1 game was called off because of lightning.
LOS ANGELES (AP) — USC quarterback J.T. Daniels is determined to bounce back from a rough performance in the second start of his freshman season. Daniels went 16 of 34 for 215 yards in the 22nd-ranked Trojans’ 17-3 loss at Stanford last weekend, throwing two late interceptions and generally struggling along with his entire offense. He also lost a fumble and was sacked four times by the Cardinal. Daniels knows he’ll need to improve if he hopes to avoid another defeat in Texas this weekend.
