    TCU 23
    Duke 3

    It was a hard fought win for the Frogs, but a suffocating defense and a grinding ground game slowly wore down the visiting Blue Devils. It was a much tighter game than the final score might suggest, as both teams struggled to put points on the board despite some good ball movement in the first half. TCU held a 7-3 halftime lead, and would open the second half with an 11 play, 80 yard scoring drive finished off with a 1 yard score from fullback Jeff Weber. After TCU would hold Duke on their next possession, the Frogs would march again into the red zone, only to have Jack King’s interception bug return (more like a virus), as he threw his 8th INT of the early season. This one would be a blessing in disguise, as the ball was ruled down at the 1 after the pick and the TCU defense would answer with a safety. HB Heath Noel would cap off his big day by breaking a 69 yard TD run late in the 4th to seal the win.

    When asked about King's performance, coach Ulrich didn't try to hide his feelings. "8 INTs in two games is clearly not good enough. We'll give (redshirt freshman) Gilmore some looks this week in practice and see who decides they want to play more on Saturday."

    Auburn - 34
    Oklahoma - 25

    OU dominated in the early going, taking a 10-3 lead by the late second quarter. The Sooner defense was smothering Auburn's offense and had just forced a punt that was returned into Auburn territory when the momentum took a shift in the Tigers direction as senior linebacker Kris Frost picked off OU's Kyle Richardson, returning it 72 yards for a score to even the game at 10 heading into the half.

    In the third quarter Auburn game out guns blazing, forcing a fumble on the opening kick and scoring just over a minute later to take a 17-10 lead. After stopping the Sooner offense, Auburn went on another touchdown drive, converting a fourth and inches from the Sooner 33 and ending the drive with a 1 yard midline iso from Kiehl Frazier.

    The Tigers struck quick again in the fourth quarter, with Frazier running in a read option from six yards out to put the Tigers up 31-10. However the Sooners quickly fired back, scoring on a one yard touchdown pass in just under a minute and a half. The Tigers were determined to take time off the clock and put together a nice, long drive taking the clock all the way down to 2:12 seconds after a 52 yard field goal. The Sooners still had some gas in the tank though, scoring on a 39 yard touchdown pass with 1:27 left and recovering the subsequent onside kick. However a quick drive was stopped inside the 10 when corner Brian Lundy cut off a flat route sealing the game for the Tigers.

    He may be, I am not sure to be honest. But yeah, most of Fraziers stats came in the second, I only had around 40-50 yards of total offense at halftime, his defense was murderous in the first

    Missouri beats the #6 ranked Seminoles 38-14. Defense was the huge part for Missouri for the second consecutive week forced 4+ interceptions as the Seminoles threw 5 interceptions. The passing game went good for Missouri as they threw for 353 yards and rushed for 100+ yards. The Missouri Tigers are feeling confident after beating ranked teams in back to back games.
