OU football: Five takeaways from Sooners' 33-14 win over TCU

FORT WORTH, Texas — For the first time since its season opener, OU didn't have to sweat down to the wire, beating TCU 33-14 on Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium.

Here are five takeaways from the Sooners' win:

1. Mims the word

Marvin Mims has had a big start to his freshman year for the Sooners and continued that against TCU.

But only two of those catches, for 12 yards, have come after halftime and none have come in the fourth quarter.

Mims had four catches for a career-high 132 yards and two touchdowns.

Most of that yardage came on the touchdowns.

On the first, a 50-yarder early in the second quarter. Mims barely had a defender within 10 yards of him and finished the play off with a tough move at the goalline to find the end zone.


The second touchdown catch was the opposite — a difficult catch followed by an easy skate into the end zone.

TCU cornerback Kee’yon Stewart had Mims well-covered on Rattler’s long heave but the ball missed Stewart’s outstretched arm and Mims was able to haul it in, Stewart stumbled and Mims had a 61-yard score a moment later.
