NORMAN, Okla. (AP) - It's only happened five times during Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops' 15-year tenure, but occasionally another team comes to town and beats the Sooners on their home field.

TCU was one of those teams, stunning the Sooners 17-10 in the 2005 season opener. Most of the players who will be on the field Saturday, when No. 11 Oklahoma (4-0, 1-0 Big 12) hosts TCU (2-2, 0-1), have few (if any) memories of that game.

But for the Horned Frogs, it was a turning point in their program's history under coach Gary Patterson.

Oklahoma is coming off its biggest win in recent years, beating Notre Dame 35-21 last Saturday. With the annual showdown in Dallas against Texas looming next Saturday, it could be tempting for the Sooners to overlook Texas Christian, but Stoops has a long memory and hasn't forgotten what happened in 2005.
