The Big 12 will be without one of it's biggest stars, and a marquee match-up just lost a little luster. When TCU takes on #7 Oklahoma on Saturday night the Frogs will be without offensive leader Trevone Boykin. ESPN's Jake Trotter is reporting that TCU head coach Gary Patterson told network reporter Holly Rowe, on Saturday, that the former Heisman candidate would not start against the Sooners, and most likely wouldn't even play at all.
For the season Boykin is completing almost 66% of his passes and has thrown for 3,427 yards, 29 touchdowns, and 9 interceptions. He suffered an ankle injury early in last week's game against the Kansas Jayhawks. Boykin be replaced by redshirt freshman Foster Sawyer who has completed 2 of 8 passes on the season for 48 yards and a score.
Obviously this makes Saturday's game against the Sooners even more of an uphill climb for the 9-1 Horned Frogs, who at one time possessed one of the nation's most prolific offenses. With star receiver Josh Doctson also sitting out with a wrist injury, TCU will most likely try to give Oklahoma a heavy dose of running back Aaron Green who is averaging 5.4 yards per carry this season.
