College Football Saturday: #15 TCU at #6 Oklahoma State and #5 Southern Cal at UC Berkeley Highlight Today’s Early Games

New, 27 comments

Can the Justin Wilcox-led Bears topple the Trojans?

NCAA Football: Oklahoma State at Texas Christian Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

When #6 Oklahoma State plays #15 TCU this afternoon at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Oklahoma, it will be the only early game scheduled between Top 25 teams.

For that reason, it deserves to get the most attention as a victory for the Cowboys could push them higher in the Top 25 Polls come tomorrow. On the flip side, a win by the Horned Frogs should move them closer to the Top 10.

The second most interesting early game features the #5 Southern Cal Trojans and the UC Berkeley Golden Bears. On paper, this one shouldn’t be close, but the fact is that the Golden Bears have a new coach in Justin Wilcox who was hired after Sonny Dykes was fired for appearing to not be committed to the Golden Bears. The Bears have played well so far, having won all three of their games. They beat North Carolina in Week 1. Then they played Weber State before facing Ole Miss last weekend.

A win today by the Golden Bears will vault them into the Top 25 and drop the Trojans like a rock.
