Iowa State (2-9, 0-8) at No. 3 TCU (10-1, 7-1)

Iowa State finishes Big 12 play as it plays No. 3 TCU at Amon G. Carter Stadium on Saturday morning

The Cyclones look to avoid a winless conference season as they face bowl-bound TCU. Iowa State has not won since its 37-30 win over Toledo on Oct. 11. Most recently, the Cyclones dropped a 37-24 decision to West Virginia last Saturday. Quarterback Sam B. Richardson threw for 275 yards and two touchdowns in the team’s fifth-straight loss. The Cyclones rallied for 410 offensive yards on 22 first downs in Ames, Iowa.

TCU has the chance to win a share its first Big 12 title Saturday morning as the team hosts its final regular season game. The Horned Frogs smashed Texas 48-10 on Thanksgiving and limited the Longhorns to only 290 offensive yards in the matchup. Quarterback Trevone Boykin was 20-for-34 on the night for 233 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. The Horned Frogs went up 20-3 heading into halftime, and an interception return by defensive end Josh Carraway put the Horned Frogs up by 38 with under three minutes left in the game.

TCU is currently in the Top 4 of the College Football Playoff bracket, but the final pairings will be announced on Sunday at 12:30 p.m.

TCU and Iowa State kick off at 11 a.m. on ABC.

Oklahoma State (5-6, 3-5) at No. 20 Oklahoma (8-3, 5-3)

The annual Bedlam series kicks off Saturday afternoon as Oklahoma State and No. 20 Oklahoma face off in each team’s season finale at Memorial Stadium in Norman, Okla.

Oklahoma State enters the matchup with a five-game losing streak, including their most recent 49-28 loss against then-No. 7 Baylor in Waco on Nov. 22. In the loss, quarterback Mason Rudolph passed for 281 yards and two touchdowns but was intercepted twice at McLane Stadium. The Cowboys were in the hole with a 42-14 deficit before using its next two drives to cut the lead. Oklahoma State finished with 381 total offensive yards against the Bears.

The Sooners enter their final home game with a 44-7 win over Kansas on Nov. 22. Oklahoma jumped out to a 31-0 start with the help of running back Samaje Perine who finished with 427 yards on 34 carries for five rushing touchdowns in the win. With Trevor Knight still out due to a spine injury, quarterback Cody Thomas only passed the ball for 39 yards on three receptions for the Sooners. Oklahoma has won the Bedlam series 11 times in 12 years, including a 33-24 win over then-No. 6 Oklahoma State last season.
