Will OU football have Dillon Gabriel back for TCU game? Brent Venables is optimistic​

Ryan Aber, The Oklahoman


PROVO, Utah — OU coach Brent Venables was vague when it came to describing the injury Dillon Gabriel suffered in the first half of the Sooners’ 31-24 win over BYU on Saturday at LaVell Edwards Stadium.

“He’s got an upper-body injury,” Venables said. “But think he’ll be back and available pretty quick.”

Gabriel appeared to suffer the injury on OU’s next-to-last offensive play of the first half, when he was brought down by Cougars safety Talan Alfrey on a rolling tackle that bounced Gabriel’s head off the field.

I believe Oklahoma State wins the tiebreaker over Oklahoma and Kansas State to advance to the championship game. All currently with two losses, and Oky State beat both. Oklahoma needs BYU to defeat the Cowboys at Stillwater on Saturday.

I also think if Texas loses to Tech Friday night in Austin, and both Oklahoma and Oky State win, then Texas is out, and Sooners and Cowboys play for the championship. This is all based on head-to-head wins as I understand it.

So, Sooners have more to play for on Friday afternoon with a chance for a conference championship game matchup with Texas or Oky State, but maybe it will help TCU that Oklahoma needs help and won’t know if they get to advance until Friday night or Saturday.

Kansas State needs to beat Iowa State at Manhattan and needs both Oklahoma and Oky State to lose to then face Texas in the CCG

His head bounced off the ground hard. This would at least second concussion. Protocol will be pretty hard to clear in only 6 days. Of course Venables isn’t going to say his out unless he has to.
