OU 11: TCU

Looking at the top performers from OU's game vs. TCU.

Each week Sooners Illustrated ranks the top performances from Oklahoma. This time around a look back at OU’s 52-46 win at TCU.

1. Ogbonnia Okoronkwo

You could make the argument that was the best game from Okoronkwo since he has been in Norman. He was a force coming off the edge, everything fans have been hoping for this season.

2. Samaje Perine

Perine looked like the P-Rhino of old vs. the Horned Frogs. Coaches keep saying how he’s only getting warmed up. Saturday actually might be an indicator of them being right about that.

3. Joe Mixon

Mixon brings the running potential of Perine but then a complete other dimension with the passing game. Mixon’s reception in the fourth down might have been a game-saver.

4. Baker Mayfield

The two lost fumbles docks Mayfield some points here, but Mayfield played his best game of the season. Four total touchdowns are exactly what the Sooners will need more of in the future.

5. Dede Westbrook

Head coach Bob Stoops said Westbrook might finally be 100 percent and the production shows it absolutely. His first two touchdowns and looking like an explosive threat again.

6. Steven Parker

It goes beyond his first career interception as Parker continues to improve. He’s reaching a point where you almost forget he’s out there because he’s that reliable.

7. Matt Romar

Welcome back, Mr. Romar. After missing the Ohio State game, Romar was incredible in returning to action. His numbers are never going to jump off the page, but his production is invaluable.

8. Charles Walker

With TCU’s offensive line dealing with Romar, it allowed Walker to have his best game of the season. A couple of knocked down passes highlighted a stellar outing from Walker.

9. Austin Seibert

Named the Big 12 Special Teams Player of the Week, Seibert bounced back in a major way from a disappointing outing vs. the Buckeyes. Stoops continues to rave about his potential.

10. Emmanuel Beal

Nobody knew Tay Evans would be out for the season heading into the game. Knowing that now, and it illustrates just how well Beal was able to play on such a big stage.

11. Erick Wren

Really you could put anybody from the offensive line here. So many guys who had to step up and did just that, including Wren making his first start at center.
