Mayfield has response for Cowherd’s criticism

  Mayfield has response for Cowherd’s criticism Heisman Trophy winner Baker Mayfield is now completely aware of commentator Colin Cowherd’s criticism of him. Cowherd, a TV/radio host for FOX Sports, has been critical of the Oklahoma Sooners quarterback multiple times over the past month. Here’s a look at some of that criticism: Baker Mayfield is fun but small, embarrassingly poor judgment, and produces huge numbers in the video game Big 12 conference. No thx.— Colin Cowherd (@ColinCowherd) November 19, 2017You'll start hearing mayfield issues soon. Multiple concussions. Dad issues. Partied. Will come out early next year.

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Freshman Trae Young scored 39 points, including the tiebreaking free throws with 7.9 seconds left, as No. 12 Oklahoma overcome a 13-point deficit in the second half to beat No. 10 TCU 90-89 on Saturday and end the nation's longest winning streak.

The 20 best ESPN ‘College GameDay’ signs of the season

  The 20 best ESPN ‘College GameDay’ signs of the season A look back at the best signs of the season.If it felt like something was missing from your Saturday morning, here's a look back at the funniest, most outstanding and well-executed College GameDay signs of the 2017 season.

The Horned Frogs (12-1, 0-1 Big 12), with their highest ranking ever, entered their first home game in 20 seasons with both teams ranked on a 17-game winning streak.

BOX SCORE: OKLAHOMA 90, TCU 89

Young scored 17 points in the final 9 1/2 minutes, the biggest when the freshman was fouled by Desmond Bane on a drive to the basket and then made both free throws.

Kameron McGusty added 22 points for the Sooners (11-1, 1-0), including a go-ahead 3-pointer with 26 seconds left after Young missed from long range. Jamuni Mcneace grabbed the rebound and fed outside to McGusty.

Kenrich Williams, who had 22 points, then scored to put TCU back in front. But he missed another potential go-ahead shot after Young's final free throws.

Bane and Ahmed Hamdy both finished with 15 points for the Frogs while Kouat Noi had 14 points with four 3s. Williams and Noi each had nine rebounds.

  Bob Stoops now plays role of biggest Oklahoma fan as he adjusts to retirement Retired Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops is enjoying golf and time with his family, but he still loves Oklahoma football. And the rest will get figured out.NORMAN, Okla. — Boredom has not been a problem. Well, check that. Every so often, when he has awakened with nothing to do and all day to do it, he has been at a loss. But there’s a cure.

BIG PICTURE

Oklahoma: Young also had 14 assists, his seventh double-double. The kid from Norman entered the game as the national leader in scoring (28.7) and assists (10.4). His fifth 30-point game was also his 11th straight game with at least 20 points — the longest Sooners streak since Stacey King's 11 in a row in 1988-89.

TCU: In front of an eager sellout crowd, the Frogs quickly fell behind 11-0 as Young made two early 3s. But TCU, after missing its first seven shots, scored 10 straight points in an 86-second span. The Frogs will be competitive in the Big 12, but have to be able to finish games with a double-digit lead after halftime. The 17-game winning streak, including their NIT championship last spring, was a school record.

UP NEXT

Oklahoma plays three of its next four games at home, starting Wednesday night against Oklahoma State.

TCU heads about 85 miles south on Interstate 35 to play at No. 18 Baylor on Tuesday night, then has another big-time Saturday home matchup next weekend against No. 11 Kansas.

  'He found himself': How Missouri QB Drew Lock became nation's leader in touchdown passes Near the end of a recent practice, as the Missouri football team splits into two and goes to opposite end zones of its indoor practice space, junior quarterback Drew Lock offers a glimpse of why he has become the nation's leader in touchdown passes.Lock, who is finishing one of the most prolific seasons in Southeastern Conference history, sprints toward an end zone. He has decided to race his offensive linemen. He looks back at them, and he raises his hands when he gets to the end zone. He points two fingers skyward, like a sprinter breaking tape at the finish line.
