/> Hall's stats could stack up, but he won't be afforded the same national stage as Bradford and Daniel, who could be headed for a Big 12 title and Heisman collision course in Kansas City.

Should the Sooners be concerned with their rushing performance, which — after four sacks — produced just 25 yards on 36 carries?

TCU's defense sold out to load the box and stop the run, contributing to Sam Bradford's 411-yard passing day. So the Horned Frogs picked their poison and died a swift death.

Still, the yard-per-carry averages by OU's top three backs are startling: DeMarco Murray, 1.8; Chris Brown, 2.1; Mossis Madu, 2.8.

In retrospect, how good was TCU, which tumbled from the Top 25?

Check back in early November, once the Frogs have tangled with BYU and Utah. Their defense is stout, but the offense appears lacking.

For now, even the Sooners don't appear sold.

"The best team we've played so far, I think,” said linebacker Travis Lewis. "Cincinnati a close No. 2, but this was the best team we've played so far.”
