Theropod jaw piece?

Sorry about my not sweet picture skills.  
found Judith river formation of Montana - milk river.  
obviously a chunk of jaw, but we usually just find little croc jaws.  This one is bigger, and the sockets just seemed theropod to me right off the bat.  Grabbed a couple tyrannosaur teeth from my daughters display in her room and they fit like a glove.  Super scientific, I know - but thoughts?  
thansk!

The sockets in a Theropod jaw are typically oval not V shaped.  Yours has more of the shape of a herbivore like Ceratopsian or Hadro.
