The Oklahoma State Cowboys (4-2, 2-1 Big 12) are hosting the TCU Horned Frogs (5-2, 2-2 Big 12) this weekend in an exciting conference showdown that will be highlighted by each team’s respective freshman quarterback.

Both Wes Lunt and Trevone Boykin are slated to be under center, and will be looking to out-duel the other in an extremely important Big 12 matchup.

Let’s take a look at where you can watch this game, the BCS and Top 25 implications that will stem from the results, an injury report, a prediction on the final score and so much more.

BCS/Top 25 Implications

While neither the Horned Frogs nor Pokes is listed in either the AP or USA Today coaches poll, or anywhere to be found in the BCS rankings, this game could change everything.

Both squads are listed in the “others receiving votes” category of both major human polls, and could easily jump into the BCS standings with a victory on Saturday.

Each team has two losses that were suffered against quality opponents, and there is still a chance that they can climb into the Top 25 and finish with a respectable bowl game appearance. It all starts with a win in this critical matchup.


TCU Player to Watch: Trevone Boykin

The freshman signal-caller put up one heck of a fight last week in the third start of his career. He ended up taking on the then-No. 17-ranked Texas Tech Red Raiders through three overtimes, eventually ending in a heartbreaking loss.

Boykin does need to work on his turnovers, as he was 26-of-44 with four touchdowns and two interceptions. Those INTs hurt the Frogs, considering he tossed three in a 14-point loss to Iowa State in his first outing, and none in a 28-point drubbing of Baylor a week later.

If TCU is going to pull off the upset here, Boykin has to be careful with the football.


Oklahoma State Player to Watch: Wes Lunt

The Pokes' true freshman QB started the first three games of the season, but went down with an injury against Louisiana-Lafayette.

Now that J.W. Walsh—his replacement—is likely done for the year, Lunt is expected to get back under center to start this contest off. The 6’4”, 210-pound quarterback will be looking to improve upon his last full-game performance, when he went 37-of-60 for 436 yards and four TDs with three interceptions in a 59-38 loss to Arizona.

The youngster is hoping that he can get started the way he did to open the season against Savannah State, when he completed 11-of-11 passes before hitting the bench in an 84-0 blowout.


Prediction: Oklahoma State 35, TCU 27

The Cowboys get the edge in this contest, as they are rolling on all cylinders and should have their vertical passing game looking revived with the return of Lunt.

Coupled with the dominance of Joseph Randle, who has 128 carries for 765 yards and eight touchdowns in 2012, there is no realistic way the Frogs are stopping the Pokes' train come Saturday.

It’ll be a hard-fought battle, but OK State gets the edge.
