No. 12 Oklahoma 24-17 win at TCU for Big 12 share

FORT WORTH, Texas — Landry Jones threw for 244 yards and two touchdowns, Damien Williams ran untouched 66 yards for a score and 12th-ranked Oklahoma held on to win 24-17 at TCU on Saturday and clinch at least a share of the Big 12 title.

TCU's fourth-down pass to the goal-line in the final minute was well-defended and fell incomplete.

The Sooners (10-2, 8-1 Big 12) won their eighth consecutive Big 12 game since a late-September loss to Kansas State, which played it regular-season finale at home Saturday night against No. 23 Texas. Oklahoma would have the outright title and guaranteed BCS spot if the seven-ranked Wildcats lose.

The Sooners, whose only other loss was to No. 1 Notre Dame, are in good shape for the final at-large BCS berth if K-State wins. Kent State's double-overtime loss to Northern Illinois in the MAC championship game likely ended any chance for that league to get in the Bowl Championship Series.

TCU (7-5, 4-5), the two-time BCS buster in its first Big 12 season, lost all four of its conference games at home despite winning four on the road.

But the Frogs still had a chance when Oklahoma's Mike Hunnicut missed a 42-yard field goal attempt for with just under than 3 minutes left.

Frogs freshman quarterback Trevone Boykin, who finished with 231 yards passing, completed three passes, including a 35-yarder to Cam White to get the Frogs to the Oklahoma 12. On third-and-10 from there, Boykin had a keeper that ended with him in the end zone but the play was called back because of a holding call — an obvious penalty that cleared the way for the score.

After hitting Josh Boyce for 7 yards, the Frogs had fourth-and-13 from the 15 in the final minute when Boykin threw toward Boyce again. But he couldn't make the play between two defenders.
