In one of the best games of the week, on paper, Oklahoma football demolished No. 6 TCU to essentially leap into the top four in the impending College Football Playoff rankings which will be released on Tuesday night.

Entering Saturday, the teams are the only ones in the conference with one league loss and the victor will take one step closer to securing a spot in the championship game.

The Sooners, who are primed for a leap into the College Football Playoff top four, will eye their sixth straight win November 18 against the Kansas Jayhawks.

TCU has not won at Oklahoma since joining the Big 12. He did it in front of a crowd of 88,308, the largest home crowd in school history.

Despite the loss, TCU is very much in line to finish second in the conference behind Oklahoma.

While Baker lit it up through the air, Sooners running back Rodney Anderson pieced together a career day with 151 rushing yards, 139 receiving yards and four touchdowns-all of which came in the first half. As was evidenced by Oklahoma hanging 38 points in the first half, the Sooners had their way with the Horned Frogs' defense on Saturday night. Just as impressive, Oklahoma started freshmen Robert Barnes, Tre Norwood and Tre Brown in its injury-ravaged secondary, and the Sooners played well.

All told, the Sooners outgained the Horned Frogs 533-424 as TCU quarterback Kenny Hill completed 13 of 28 passes for 270 yards and a score.

TCU actually did hold a 7-3 lead in the first quarter, but that was all the joy they would feel on Saturday evening.

Sure, TCU is pretty bummed about being embarrassed on Saturday in primetime against Oklahoma, but there is one thing it could maybe take some satisfaction in.
