1st quarter

Blake Bell’s 17-yard pass to Sterling Shepard pushed the Sooners to the TCU 36 but a 6-yard loss on a sack by TCU’s Mike Tuaua helped force Oklahoma to settle for a 39-yard field goal and 3-0 lead with 2:45 remaining in the quarter.

2nd quarter

Trey Millard’s 8-yard scoring run capped a 13-play, 84-yard drive to give Oklahoma a 10-0 lead with 2:29 left in the half.

3rd quarter

After TCU had finally gotten on the board with a 25-yard field goal, the Frogs caught Oklahoma off guard with a pooch kick. TCU’s Derrick Kindred recovered the fumble to set up the Frogs’ first touchdown drive of the game.

4th quarter

Brennan Clay’s 76-yard scoring run with 4:37 left gave the Sooners a 20-10 lead and the cushion was too much for TCU to overcome. The Frogs responded with a quick 75-yard scoring drive to cut it to 20-17, but Oklahoma made two first downs to run out the final 2 minutes.
