According to a postgame report from NewsOK after Oklahoma beat No. 5 Kansas, the chant from the OU student section before tipoff was "T-C-U! T-C-U!"
The chant from the OU student section when Kansas center Jeff Withey was shooting free throws: "T-C-U! T-C-U!"
The Frogs travel to Oklahoma (15-17, 6-4 Big 12) five days after TCU (10-13, 1-9 Big 12) picked up its first conference win by defeating the Jayhawks last Wednesday.
The big upset was set back on Saturday when the Frogs fell at home to West Virginia 63-50.
Head coach Trent Johnson's side will look for another offensive output from sophomore guard Kyan Anderson, who scored a team-high 16 points against the Mountaineers.
Senior Connell Crossland will head to Norman after scoring a new career-high 13 points, his third double-figure scoring output in the last five contests. Over that five game stretch, Crossland is averaging 10.4 points with 9.4 rebounds.
The Sooners will look to improve their seeding for the upcoming Big 12 tournament just two days after their upset of Kansas. OU is currently tied for fourth with Iowa State and Baylor with a 6-4 conference record.
Oklahoma forward Romero Osby and guard Steven Pledger shot a combined 12-22 from the field against Kansas and accumulated 32 points. However, the Frogs have the second best scoring defense in the conference, holding opponents to 58.5 points per game.
Tipoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. from the Lloyd Noble Center. The game will be televised on ESPNU.
