Oklahoma State vs. TCU might be overshadowed a bit nationally by the other matchups of undefeated teams — Alabama-Tennessee and Penn State-Michigan — but it is a huge showdown in the Big 12.

The game will take place on Saturday afternoon in Fort Worth, with kickoff scheduled for 3:30 p.m. Eastern time on ABC.

Both of these teams are battle tested, as well. Oklahoma State, currently ranked No. 8 in the AP Poll, is no stranger to road wins over top-20 teams. The Cowboys went into Waco and beat then-No. 16 Baylor 2 weeks ago.

Meanwhile, TCU has a pair of ranked wins on its own résumé, having smoked then-No. 18 Oklahoma 2 weekends ago and handing then-No. 19 Kansas its first loss of the season last week.

But, something has to give this weekend. This game might come down to Oklahoma State’s ability to stop the run. The Cowboys currently boast the nation’s No. 37 run defense, yielding only 118.8 yards per game on the ground.

TCU has the country’s No. 13 overall rushing attack, piling up 230.2 yards per game on the ground.

And, let’s not forget the quarterbacks. Sanders and Duggan have both been dual-threat stars. Sanders has 1,394 passing yards, 12 touchdowns and 2 interceptions. He’s added 241 yards and 6 touchdowns as a runner.

Duggan has thrown for 1,305 yards, 14 touchdowns and 1 interception, while compiling 204 yards and 3 scores on the ground.

Watching those guys go head-to-head is going to be a lot of fun.

Oklahoma State vs. TCU prediction

This will likely be a back and forth affair, and the team with the ball last will have a good chance to win. Oklahoma State’s defense makes one more big play in the fourth quarter and kicker Tanner Brown (who is 26-for-26 on extra points and 8-for-8 on field goals this year) bangs a kick through the uprights as time expires to keep the Cowboys unbeaten.

Prediction: Oklahoma State 41, TCU 38
