College Football Weekend Preview: Will the Red Raiders Hand the Horned Frogs Their 1st Loss?

Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

The Sooners are off this weekend, but that doesn't mean there aren't some intriguing match-ups this weekend along with several teams that should be on upset alert. Here is a quick rundown of what to look for this weekend.

Around the Big 12

#3 TCU vs TTech in Lubbock, TX.

While I am firmly in the camp that TCU is living on borrowed time, I still believe they find a way to get it done against Patrick Mahomes and company. That being said, TTech winning this game would not surprise me in the least. Should the Red Raiders find a way to win on Saturday, I wouldn't want to miss Kingsbury's post game press conference.

#24 Oklahoma State vs Texas in Austin, TX

Oklahoma State hits the road for the second time this season, traveling to Texas to take on a possibly rejuvenated Longhorn team. Redshirt Freshman Jerrod Heard lit up the terrible Cal Golden Bear defense last week. Was Heard's performance a preview of coming events, or just the result of facing a BAD defense. I think the truth is somewhere in the middle. I expect a close game with the Pokes pulling it out in the end. Here is a fun vine, just because it's awesome to watch yet again.

Around the Country

#14 Texas A&M vs Arkansas at the Dallas Cowboys Stadium in Arlington, TX.

Bielema's Hogs are on life support, and I believe that Texas A&M will score early and often. This game should barring something unforeseen be a blowout.

#9 UCLA vs #16 Arizona in Tucson, AZ.

At some point true freshman Josh Rosen will cost the Bruins a game. Crazy things happen on Saturday nights during college football games. I wouldn't be the least bit surprised to see the Bruins suffer their first loss of the season.

#18 Utah vs #13 Oregon in Eugene, OR.

Neither team has really impressed me this season. I just don't think the Utes have the firepower to stay with the Ducks for an entire game. I expect the game to be close till late and then Oregon emerges victorious.

Other Games to Watch

#25 Mizzou travels to Kentucky. Mark Stoops has a real chance to knock of the Tigers and move to 3-1 on the season

#22 BYU travels to Michigan. The Cougars have been a stout team to date and they should get a real test in Ann Arbor.

#21 Stanford travels to Corvallis, OR to take on the Oregon State Beavers. Will the real Stanford team please stand up?
