NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Bram Kohlhausen's 2-point conversion attempt was batted away by Oklahoma's Steven Parker with less than a minute left and No. 18 TCU fell to No. 7 Oklahoma 30-29 on Saturday night.

After trailing 30-13 in the fourth quarter, TCU had a chance to tie the game after Kohlhausen's 14-yard touchdown pass to Emanuel Porter with 51 seconds remaining. Instead, the Horned Frogs went for the win by attempting the 2-point conversion but were turned away by Parker's late play.

Samaje Perine ran for 188 yards and a touchdown and Heisman Trophy contender Baker Mayfield completed 9 of 20 passes for 127 yards and two touchdowns for Oklahoma (10-1, 7-1 Big 12, No. 7 CFP) before leaving with an apparent head injury after the first half.

Without offensive stars Trevone Boykin and Josh Doctson, the Horned Frogs (9-2, 6-2, No. 18 CFP) turned the ball over four times, leading to 24 Oklahoma points.

Freshman Foster Sawyer started in Boykin's place and enjoyed a strong first quarter, completing 7 of his first 8 passes for 103 yards and a touchdown that put the Horned Frogs up 7-0. He was just 1 of 10 after that with three interceptions and was eventually replaced midway through the third quarter by Kohlhausen.

''That's what we do, we fight back, no matter who's on the field,'' Green said. ''Second-string line, third- and second-string quarterback, freshmen at wideout, we just gave it our all. That's what we've been taught to do. Unfortunately, we just came up short.''

Kohlhausen led the fourth quarter comeback attempt, completing 5 of 11 passes for 122 yards and two touchdowns. Aaron Green rushed for 127 yards - 96 in the second half - and a touchdown.
