NORMAN, Okla. – TCU came up with its biggest upset in 45 years, stifling Heisman hopeful Adrian Peterson and beating No. 7 Oklahoma 17-10 Saturday.

Tye Gunn threw for 226 yards and a touchdown as the Horned Frogs (1-0) handed the stunned Sooners (0-1) their first home loss since 2001 and the only loss in September under Bob Stoops.

The decisive score came on a 2-yard run by Robert Merrill with 11:56 left after the Horned Frogs took advantage of a fumble by Oklahoma backup quarterback Rhett Bomar.

The Sooners had one final chance with 2:05 left, but Thompson – who replaced 2003 Heisman winner Jason White this season – fumbled on a fourth down play with just 1:03 left and the Horned Frogs recovered and ran out the clock.
