No. 14 Oklahoma State felt disrespected entering Saturday's game against No. 8 TCU. All anybody wants to talk about are the Horned Frogs and those No. 6 Baylor Bears, they say.
Well, quarterback Mason Rudolph and the undefeated Cowboys are making a loud statement in the first half. Rudolph already has thrown four touchdown passes, three of which have gone for at least 48 yards, including a long of 82 to Marcell Ateman that put Oklahoma State ahead 28-9 with 7:57 to go in the first half.

James Washington hauled in the first two touchdowns of 48 and 50 yards. Watch the first one above, and the second one below:
The high-powered Horned Frogs' offense led by Heisman Trophy candidate Trevone Boykin is never out of a game. It rallied to win at Texas Tech and came back from an 18-point halftime deficit to win at Kansas State.
But if TCU is to come back from this 19-point halftime deficit, the defense -- and in particular the secondary -- is going to have to find a way to control Rudolph, who completed 12-of-17 passes in the first.
