TCU FOOTBALL

BOWL FIXTURES 4TCU is making its 14th bowl appearance in 16 seasons under head coach Gary Patterson. 4TCU is one of just 20 schools with at least 14 bowl trips in the last 16 seasons. The list includes Florida State (16), Georgia (16), LSU (16), Oklahoma (16), Virginia Tech (16), Boise State (15), Clemson (15), Florida (15), Georgia Tech (15), Wisconsin (15), Alabama (14), Auburn (14), Iowa (14), Nebraska (14), Ohio State (14), Oklahoma State (14), Oregon (14), TCU (14), USC (14) and West Virginia (14). 4Only TCU, Iowa (Kirk Ferentz) and Oklahoma (Bob Stoops) have accomplished the feat with the same head coach. A LOOK BACK 4TCU’s 47-41 triple-overtime victory over Oregon in last year’s Valero Alamo Bowl was one of the more memorable games of the 2015 college football season. 4TCU trailed 31-0 at the half and recorded the largest comeback in school history. The previous best under head coach Gary Patterson had been 18 points (at BYU, 2005; at Kansas State, 2015). 4The 31-point comeback tied the largest for any bowl game in history. Texas Tech rallied from 31 points down against Minnesota in the 2006 Insight Bowl. 4The 31 points tied for the second-largest comeback all-time in an FBS game. Michigan State rallied from 35 points down to beat Northwestern 41-38 in 2006. 4Since Texas Tech’s 31-point comeback in the 2006 Insight Bowl, teams had been 0-1,463 when trailing by at least 31 points at any point in the game. 4Quarterback Bram Kohlhausen and linebacker Travin Howard were named the Offensive and Defensive Most Valuable Players. 4For the second straight year, TCU set a school record for points in a bowl game. The previous mark was set in the 42-3 2014 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl win over Ole Miss. 4The 94 plays by TCU broke its bowl record of 87 set in the 2008 Poinsettia Bowl. 4TCU set a bowl record with 545 yards of total offense. The previous record of 494 came in the 2003 Fort Worth Bowl. 4The 371 yards passing was a bowl record, breaking the previous mark of 275 in the 2005 EV1.net Houston Bowl, while the 47 pass attempts broke the record set in 2009 at the Tostitos Fiesta Bowl. 4The Horned Frogs improved to 5-0 against Pac-12 opponents under Patterson. REMEMBER WHEN 4TCU’s last bowl game versus an SEC opponent provided one of the signature victories during head coach Gary Patterson’s 19 years on campus. 4The No. 6 Horned Frogs defeated No. 9 Ole Miss 42-3 in the 2014 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. TCU built a 28-0 halftime lead and led 42-0 less than two minutes into the second half. 4The Horned Frogs set school records for most points (42) in a bowl game and largest margin of victory (39). 4Ole Miss was held to 9 yards rushing and 129 of total offense.


NEW GUYS 4In 2016, TCU is one of just two FBS teams (Bowling Green) to lose a 3,000-yard passer (Trevone Boykin), 1,000-yard rusher (Aaron Green) and 1,000-yard receiver (Josh Doctson) from last season. 4TCU is one of only four FBS teams to lose its topfour scorers (Jaden Oberkrom, Doctson, Green and Boykin) from last season. 4Six players from TCU’s 2015 offense made NFL rosters with center Joey Hunt (Seattle Seahawks) and offensive tackle Halapoulivaati Vaitai (Philadelphia Eagles) earning starting jobs as rookies.

4The Horned Frogs have now topped 20 points in 39 of their last 42 games. QUICK STARTS 4 The Horned Frogs have scored a first-quarter touchdown in 32 of their last 38 contests. IT’S A RUSH 4TCU is 83-5 when rushing for at least 200 yards under Gary Patterson. 4The Horned Frogs averaged 370.0 yards per game rushing in their last two road games.

PAVING THE WAY 4Center Austin Schlottmann, a second-team All-Big 12 selection, has not allowed a sack in his 752 snaps this season. He has surrendered just eight quarterback pressures, representing 1.1 percent of his snaps. 4Schlottmann has totaled 18 knockdown blocks. HISTORY MADE 4Prior to Darius Anderson’s 103 yards, including a 70yard touchdown, on just three carries at Texas, nobody in TCU football history had ever topped 100 yards on fewer rushing attempts. 4The previous low in carries for a 100-yard day was Aaron Green with six attempts for 105 yards in an 8227 win over Texas Tech in 2014.

HICKS TOTING THE PIGSKIN 4In six of the last 10 games, and he was limited in two contests (Texas Tech, Texas) because of injury, Kyle Hicks has posted the top six rushing performances of his career and averaged 87.3 yards per contest in that stretch: Opponent Att.

4The top three names above finished in the top five in Heisman Trophy voting. 4Hicks’ 12 rushing TDs are TCU’s most since Matthew Tucker (12) in 2011. RUNNING WILD IN WACO 4Kyle Hicks ran for a career-high 192 yards and five touchdowns at Baylor. It was his fourth 100-yard game of the season, all in the last 10 contests. 4Hicks’ five rushing touchdowns tied for second-best in a game in TCU history, equaling Tony Jeffery (5, vs. Tulane, 1986) and trailing only LaDainian Tomlinson (6, vs. UTEP, 1999). It tied for the most by an FBS player in a conference game this season. 4Hicks’ 192 yards rushing were the most by a Horned Frog since Ed Wesley’s 209 against Air Force in 2010. SETTING THE PACE 4Four players have led TCU in rushing in a game this season, while seven different Horned Frogs have been a leading receiver:

Opponent South Dakota State Arkansas Iowa State SMU Oklahoma Kansas West Virginia Texas Tech Baylor Oklahoma State Texas Kansas State

THE FUTURE 4In two of TCU’s last five games, a true freshman led the team in rushing. 4Darius Anderson had 103 yards, including a 70-yard touchdown, on just three carries at Texas. It surpassed his season total of 92 yards entering the game. 4Sewo Olonilua had a career-best 48 yards on seven carries versus Texas Tech.

FROG OFFENSIVE NOTES CINDERELLA STORY 4Walk-on wide receiver Daniel Walsh, who was a lacrosse player in high school in San Diego, made his first collegiate start in the West Virginia game and had a careerhigh and team-best four receptions for 32 yards. 4For the season, Walsh is ninth on TCU with 14 receptions for 157 yards. IMPERSONATING DOCTSON 4Taj Williams recorded a career-high 210 yards receiving, on five receptions with two touchdowns (64 and 74 yards), against Oklahoma. It was the fourth most in a game in TCU history and the highest total since Josh Doctson’s school-record 267 yards at Texas Tech last season:

Name Rec. Yds Gm Josh Doctson, vs. Texas Tech, 2015 267 Jimmy Young, vs. Wyoming, 2008 226 Josh Doctson, vs. Oklahoma State, 2014 225 Taj Williams, vs. Oklahoma, 2016 210

HUMAN HIGHLIGHT FILM 4After missing four games and most of the Iowa State contest, KaVontae Turpin returned to action against Texas Tech. He tied for the team lead with four receptions for 39 yards. He then led TCU with six catches for 49 yards at Baylor. 4Turpin is on pace to break LaDainian Tomlinson’s TCU career record of 6,337 allpurpose yards (1997-00). Included below is a look at their first two seasons: Names Rush Rec. PR KR Tot. KaVontae Turpin 197 944 306 1,085 2,532 LaDainian Tomlinson 1,255 141 0 769 2,165 Turpin totaled a career-best 295 all-purpose yards (126 receiving, 136 kick returns, 4 33 punt returns) against Arkansas. 4At 5-foot-9, Turpin is the shortest returning player from a Power 5 team to have at least eight touchdown catches last season. TURPIN’S HIGH SCHOOL QB 4Graduate transfer John Diarse, who played his first two seasons at LSU, is from the same Monroe (La.) Neville High School that produced KaVontae Turpin. Diarse was Turpin’s quarterback at Neville. 4In his first 12 games as a Horned Frog, Diarse has surpassed the number of receptions and yards he had during his two seasons at LSU: TCU (2016) LSU (2014-15)

Rec. Yds. Avg. TD LG 31 423 13.6 1 75 28 412 14.7 3 75

4Diarse is third on TCU with his 31 receptions. He had the first 100-yard game of his career with six catches for 139 yards at SMU, including a 75-yard TD from Kenny Hill on the first play of the second half. It is TCU’s longest play from scrimmage this season. TD STREAK 4Jaelan Austin’s 11-yard TD reception at West Virginia was his fourth straight game with a scoring grab. It was tied for the third-longest active streak in the nation before being snapped in the Texas Tech game. 4Austin’s streak of a touchdown catch in four straight games was the longest by a Horned Frog since Josh Doctson had multiple scoring grabs in six consecutive games last season. 4Austin is tied for the TCU lead with five receiving touchdowns this season on 23 catches. He has seven career scoring grabs on only 33 receptions. SECRET WEAPON 4Tight end Cole Hunt had two of his five receptions on the season on TCU’s opening scoring drive at Texas. He entered the game with just three catches.

A TCU TRADITION 4Since the NCAA began tracking statistics in 1937, TCU trails only Alabama for the most times leading the nation in total defense. The Crimson Tide have been No. 1 six times, while all five No. 1 rankings for the Horned Frogs are in the last 16 seasons. 4In 2010, TCU became just the third program in NCAA history to top the nation in total defense in three consecutive seasons (2008-10). The others are Toledo (1969-71) and Oklahoma (1985-87). MAGIC NUMBERS 4In 16 seasons with Gary Patterson as head coach, TCU is 102-3 when allowing 17 points or less. 4The Horned Frogs have held Texas to 13 points or less in four of their five Big 12 meetings. HONOR ROLL 4Seven of TCU’s 11 defensive starters received firstor second-team All-Big 12 honors from the Associated Press or conference head coaches. 4Defensive end Josh Carraway and linebacker Travin Howard were first-team picks, while defensive tackle Aaron Curry, safeties Denzel Johnson and Nick Orr, linebacker Ty Summers and cornerback Ranthony Texada garnered second-team accolades. OUT OF THE END ZONE 4TCU held Kansas State to a field goal in the first quarter. Dating back to the 31-9 win at Texas, TCU went five straight quarters without allowing a TD.

FROG DEFENSIVE NOTES SACK MASTERS 4Defensive ends Josh Carraway and James McFarland rank second and fourth, respectively, among active Big 12 players in career sacks:

Name Sacks Jordan Willis, Kansas State 25 1/2 Josh Carraway, TCU 19 Noble Nwachukwu, WVU 15 1/2 James McFarland, TCU 12 1/2

4Carraway’s team-high eight sacks this season are fourth in the Big 12. He has at least one sack in six of the last eight games. 4Carraway (9, 2015) and McFarland (7, 2014) were TCU’s sack leaders the last two seasons. CARRAWAY CLIMBING THE CHARTS 4Josh Carraway has moved into seventh place on TCU’s career sacks list: Name Career Sacks Aaron Schobel, 1997-00 31 Jerry Hughes, 2006-09 28 1/2 Bo Schobel, 2000-03 28 1/2 Tommy Blake, 2004-07 23 Royal West, 1991-94 22 Chase Ortiz, 2004-07 20 1/2 Josh Carraway, 2012-present 19 CARRAWAY IN CRUNCH TIME 4Josh Carraway was named the Big 12 Defensive Player of the Week after the win at Kansas. 4All three of Carraway’s sacks came in the fourth quarter, including back-to-back snaps on KU’s final drive. The three sacks were the most by a Horned Frog since Devonte Fields in 2012. 4Carraway’s four tackles for loss marked TCU’s highest total since Chucky Hunter in 2014. THE SACK RACE 4Josh Carraway, Mat Boesen and Aaron Curry are locked in a tight battle for the team lead in sacks:

Name Josh Carraway Mat Boesen Aaron Curry

Sacks 8.0 6.0 5.5

4The trio has nearly half (19 1/2) of the Horned Frogs’ 40 sacks and makes TCU the only school with three players in the top 12 in sacks in the Big 12. Carraway is fourth, Boesen is seventh and Curry is tied for 12th. BALL HAWK 4Nick Orr has four of TCU’s eight picks this season. 4Orr, who has started the Horned Frogs’ last 25 games (eight at cornerback, 17 at safety), has six career interceptions to top active TCU players. No other Horned Frog has more than two career picks. 4Orr had two interceptions at Kansas to become the first Horned Frog with multiple picks in a game since Sam Carter at Texas in 2014.

Blanding (120), Virginia 254 R. Butler (150), D. Herrington (98), NMSU 248 T. Howard (125), T. Summers (113), TCU 238 THE CENTURY MARK 4Travin Howard has a team-high 125 tackles. He is just the second Horned Frog in 16 seasons under head coach Gary Patterson with back-to-back years of 100 stops (Martin Patterson, 2003-04). 4Howard had a team-high 105 stops in 2015, making it nine straight seasons for a linebacker to lead TCU.

TURPIN TIME 4Because he’s missed a combined five games due to injury, KaVontae Turpin does not qualify for listing among NCAA statistical leaders. 4If he had the number of games played to qualify, Turpin would be leading the Big 12 and rank eighth in the nation in punt returns with his average of 12.5 yards while placing second in the conference and 14th in the FBS in kickoff returns with a 27.4 mark. 4Turpin’s 27.4 average on kickoff returns is the highest by a Horned Frog since All-American Greg McCoy had a 30.6 mark in 2011. 4Prior to his injury in Week 3, Turpin was leading the NCAA in punt returns (28.8 yards) and was one of two players nationally (Darius Phillips, Western Michigan) to rank in the top 10 in punt returns and kickoff returns. Turpin was eighth in kickoff returns (32.8 yards). 4Through two games, before the injury, Turpin topped the nation in all-purpose yards at 236.0 per game. He then left the Week 3 Iowa State contest early due to injury. 4After having one kickoff return for 28 yards late in the Texas Tech game, Turpin returned to his regular duties as TCU’s primary kickoff and punt returner at Baylor. He had three kickoff returns for 99 yards (33.0 average), including a 46-yard effort on his first attempt of the game versus the Bears. 4Turpin’s career-long 64-yard kickoff return against Arkansas, with less than a minute to play in regulation, set up a potential game-winning field goal. 4Turpin’s 81-yard second-quarter punt return for a touchdown against South Dakota State was the second of his career. He had a 49-yard punt return for a score versus Kansas last season. 4Turpin’s 81-yard effort tied for the sixth-longest punt return in TCU history. It was the Horned Frogs’ longest since LaVar Veale went 85 yards versus Nevada in 2000. 4Turpin’s two punt returns for touchdowns leave him one shy of tying TCU’s career record of three:

Name Career Punt Returns for TDs Linzy Cole, 1968-69 3 Blanard Spearman, 1930-32 3 KaVontae Turpin, 2015- 2 Several players 2

4Turpin is the first Horned Frog with two punt returns for touchdowns since current San Francisco 49er Jeremy Kerley had a pair of scores in 2009. IMMEDIATE IMPACT 4As a true freshman in 2015, KaVontae Turpin was the only player in the nation in the top 25 in kickoff returns (27.0 average) and punt returns (10.6 average). 4Turpin was second in the Big 12 and tied for 14th nationally in kickoff returns. He ranked second in the conference and 23rd in the FBS in punt returns.

4Turpin’s 49-yard punt return versus Kansas was TCU’s first for a touchdown since Cameron EcholsLuper at KU in 2014. 4Turpin’s 27.0-yard kickoff return average was the highest by a Horned Frog (minimum 10 attempts) since All-American Greg McCoy had a 30.6 mark in 2011. NOT BAD REPLACEMENTS 4Filling in for an injured KaVontae Turpin on punt returns, Desmon White has a 7.8-yard average. 4At SMU, in his first game as Turpin’s replacement, White had a career long 31-yard punt return on his first attempt. He totaled three returns for 74 yards (24.7 average) in being named the Big 12 Co-Special Teams Player of the Week. 4Deanté Gray, taking Turpin’s place on kickoff returns at Texas, had a career-long 57-yard effort. He is averaging 22.4 yards per return on the season. REMEMBER WHEN? 4Deanté Gray set a TCU single-game record with 160 punt return yards, including a 70-yard touchdown, on five attempts in his collegiate debut in the 2012 season opener against Grambling State. 4The previous mark of 146 yards on seven returns was set by Lindy Berry versus Miami in 1947. 4Gray’s 70-yard return for a touchdown came on his first collegiate touch. It was just 1:59 into the game after a 3-and-out on Grambling State’s opening series. 4Gray had the first punt return for a touchdown by a Horned Frog since Jeremy Kerley went 69 yards against Colorado State in 2009. THE STAPLES 4With the graduation of a pair of four-year starters in place-kicker Jaden Oberkrom and punter Ethan Perry, the TCU kicking game is in new hands for 2016. 4Oberkrom, a 2015 All-American, is the TCU and Big 12 career record-holder with 79 field goals. NEW FACES 4With an injury to Jonathan Song, TCU has debuted a trio of walk-on place-kickers from California. 4Brandon Hatfield (12-of-16) and Ryan Graf (5-of-6) have combined to go 17-of-22 on field goals and 45-of46 on extra-point attempts. 4Hatfield’s 34-yard field goal with 1:21 to play at Kansas provided the go-ahead points in TCU’s 24-23 win. He had a career-long 40-yard field goal versus Kansas State. The junior from Chino Hills, Calif., has handled the place-kicking duties the last eight games. 4Graf, a Los Angeles native who chose TCU over Yale, had a career long 46-yard field goal at SMU and has at least one field goal in all four games he’s appeared. 4Cole Bunce, from San Jose, Calif., has recorded 27 touchbacks on 69 kickoffs while helping limit opponents to a 19.5 return average.

AUTOZONE LIBERT Y BOWL

FROG SPECIAL TEAM NOTES STEADY FOOT 4Adam Nunez has placed 24 punts inside the opponent 20 with just two touchbacks. His 39.6-yard average is the best by a Horned Frog since Ethan Perry was at 40.3 in 2013. 4In the last three games, Nunez has placed 10 punts inside the 20, including six inside the 10, with no touchbacks. During that stretch, TCU opponents have had seven punt returns for a total of 10 yards (1.4 average). 4Nunez had punts downed at the Baylor 2- and 3-yard lines. He was key in the Bears, for the game, having an average starting field position at their 18. 4Nunez had a career-long 56-yard punt at Kansas while averaging 43.0 yards on six attempts. 4Nunez recorded a 45.0 average on six punts versus Iowa State with three placed inside the 20. The Cyclones had a minus-2 yards on four punt returns. SPEED BABY 4Adam Nunez had an 18-yard run for a first down on a fake punt against Texas Tech. 4Nunez is just 5,246 yards away from breaking LaDainian Tomlinson’s TCU career record for rushing (5,263, 1997-00). THE COVERAGE GAME 4TCU allows just a 19.5-yard average on kickoff returns and 4.3 on punt returns. The 4.3 mark is fourth in the Big 12 and 19th nationally. The 19.5 kickoff return average is fourth in the Big 12 and 43rd in the FBS. 4Last season, TCU was second in the Big 12 and fifth nationally in punt return defense (2.5 yards). 4The Horned Frogs set an NCAA record by holding opponents to minus-9 yards on punt returns in 2014.

HOME SWEET HOME 4The $164 million rebuild of Amon G. Carter Stadium, completed in 2012, was funded entirely by donor support and features a seating capacity of 45,000.

4Nearly 35,000 TCU fans traveled to the 2011 Rose Bowl. Over 20,000 made the trip the previous year to the Fiesta Bowl. At its first New Year’s Six bowl, TCU had 15,000 fans at the 2014 Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

4The six Founders Club suites, located at midfield on the concourse level, were sold at $15 million each to provide lead gifts totaling $90 million.

BOWL MAINSTAYS 4 TCU has reached a bowl game in 17 of the last 19 seasons. The Horned Frogs have earned a bowl trip in 14 of Gary Patterson’s 16 seasons as head coach.

4There are 25 suites, all sold, on the west side. 4In August 2013, Yahoo! Sports ranked Amon G. Carter Stadium as the best stadium in the Big 12. HORNED FROGS FEVER 4TCU had four sellouts at home games this season and 28 in the past 40 contests at Amon G.

GARY PAT TERSON HEAD COACH

KANSAS STATE, 1983 16th Season as TCU Head Coach 19th Season Overall at TCU Since taking over the helm of the Horned Frogs in December 2000, Gary Patterson has become synonymous with TCU football and Fort Worth. Patterson, the Horned Frogs’ all-time winningest coach with 149 victories, led TCU to a 2014 Big 12 championship in just its third season in the conference. TCU has won six conference championships, in three different leagues, under Patterson. Patterson has won a total of 20 national coach of the year honors in his 16-year head coaching tenure at TCU. His .738 winning percentage (149-53) ranks fifth among active coaches nationally (minimum 10 years). He is also one of just three active coaches with at least 149 victories at their current school. The Horned Frogs have won at least 10 games in 10 of the last 15 seasons. Included in that stretch are nine 11-win campaigns. Prior to Patterson’s arrival on campus in 1998, TCU had just four 10-win seasons in its history. During his 19 years on campus, including three seasons as defensive coordinator (1998-00), Patterson has seen TCU make 17 bowl appearances. From 2005-08, Patterson led the Horned Frogs to four straight bowl victories for the first time in school history. During that stretch, TCU was one of just seven schools nationally to have an active bowl-game winning streak of at least four in a row. TCU is 11-5 in bowl games with Patterson on its coaching staff and 9-5 with him as head coach. Prior to Patterson’s arrival on campus in 1998, the Horned Frogs had just four bowl wins in their history. In 16 seasons as a head coach, Patterson has coached 199 all-conference selections, 16 firstteam All-Americans, 18 Freshman All-Americans, two Academic All-Americans and a Rhodes Scholar in Caylin Moore. As TCU’s head coach, Patterson has had 41 players drafted with a total of 93 in NFL camps. Patterson’s success on the gridiron is also mirrored in the classroom for his players. In eight of the last nine seasons, TCU has been recognized by the American Football Coaches Association (AFCA) as one of the nation’s leaders in its graduation rate for student-athletes. TCU was one of just four programs to finish in the top 25 in the final 2010 polls and in the Academic Progress Rate (APR). Patterson is widely regarded as one of the nation’s top defensive minds. Since the NCAA began tracking statistics in 1937, TCU trails only Alabama for the most times leading the nation in total defense. The Crimson Tide have been No. 1 six times, while all five No. 1 rankings (2000, 2002, 2008, 2009, 2010) for the Horned Frogs are in the last 17 seasons under Patterson. From 2008-10, TCU became just the third program in NCAA history to lead the nation in total defense in three consecutive seasons. TCU is 38-4 as a top-10 team under Patterson, including 27-2 when in the Associated Press or USA Today Top 5. Since 2000, TCU’s 25-2 record (.926) as an AP Top 5 team is the best mark nationally. Patterson received honorable-mention Big 12 Coach of the Year recognition in 2015. Despite

having 20 starters sidelined at different points in the season and playing a total of 30 freshmen, which ranked second nationally, TCU posted an 11-2 record. The season culminated with a 47-41 tripleovertime victory over Oregon in the Valero Alamo Bowl. Trailing 31-0 at halftime, the Horned Frogs tied for the largest comeback win in bowl history and the second-largest ever in an FBS game. Patterson received 10 national coach of the year honors in 2014. He was honored by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, AFCA, Associated Press, Home Depot, ESPN.com, CBSSports.com and Scout.com. He also received the Eddie Robinson Award, Paul “Bear” Bryant Award and Woody Hayes Award. The third-longest tenured head coach in the nation, Patterson became TCU’s career leader in wins with a 56-0 victory over Grambling State in the 2012 season opener, a game that also marked the debut of the new Amon G. Carter Stadium. The previous TCU mark of 109 wins was held by Dutch Meyer (1934-52). The success of the program under his leadership was key in TCU securing an invitation to the Big 12 Conference and the $164 million rebuild of Amon G. Carter Stadium. TCU’s winning record in its first season in the Big 12 in 2012 came with the Horned Frogs fielding one of the youngest teams in the country. TCU tied for the national lead in most true freshmen played (16) as well as total freshmen (28) seeing the field. Nearly 70 percent of Horned Frogs who received playing time in 2012 were either freshmen or sophomores. TCU led the Big 12 in total defense with just one senior on its entire defensive depth chart. In August 2011, Patterson was named the nation’s top coach by Sports Illustrated and ESPN The Magazine. Sporting News tabbed him in January 2012 as the nation’s third-best coach. In leading TCU to back-to-back BCS appearances in the 2009 and 2010 seasons, including a 2011 Rose Bowl championship, Patterson received 10 national coach of the year honors. Despite losing 26 seniors to graduation off his Rose Bowl championship team, Patterson led a 2011 TCU squad to a third consecutive Mountain West championship. It was the first time the Horned Frogs won a conference title in three straight seasons. TCU was also the first team in MW history to win the league championship in three consecutive campaigns. The 2011 campaign saw TCU record its fourth straight 11-win season and become the only program nationally to reach 11 victories six times in a seven-year span (2005-11). In 2010, Patterson guided the Horned Frogs to an undefeated season and Rose Bowl championship. TCU finished second in the final polls with a 13-0 record, its first perfect campaign since winning the national championship in 1938. Patterson was named American Football Monthly’s 2010 Coach of the Year as he led TCU to its second straight BCS game. Other honors for Patterson included the Exchange Club of Fort Worth recognizing him as Fort Worth’s Outstanding Citizen for 2010, while the National Football Foundation’s Gridiron Club

2016 TCU FOOTBALL

HEAD COACH GARY PATTERSON of Dallas selected him for its 2011 Distinguished Texan Award. Patterson also received the 2010 TCU Chancellor’s Staff Award for Outstanding Service. Despite losing two starters in the first two rounds of the NFL Draft and a pair of four-year starters at cornerback, TCU topped the nation in total defense in 2010. The 2009 campaign saw Patterson selected for nine national coaching honors after leading TCU to a 12-1 record, No. 6 ranking and Fiesta Bowl appearance. The No. 6 spot in the polls in 2009 was TCU’s highest season-ending ranking since 1955, when it was also sixth. The Horned Frogs had their first undefeated regular season since their 1938 national championship campaign. Despite losing seven starters to graduation, including three to the NFL, off 2008’s No. 1 defense, the Horned Frogs led the nation in 2009 by allowing just 239.7 yards per game. TCU and Florida were the only schools in 2009 to rank in the top 10 nationally in total offense and defense. Patterson was named National Coach of the Year by the Walter Camp Football Foundation, Associated Press, American Football Coaches Association and Sporting News while also receiving the Bobby Dodd Award, Eddie Robinson Award, Liberty Mutual Coach of the Year Award, George Munger Award and Woody Hayes Award. Patterson guided TCU to an 11-2 record and a No. 7 ranking in the final 2008 AP and USA Today polls. It was the Horned Frogs’ highest season-ending appearance in the polls since 1959. Included in the win total were victories over then-undefeated, top10 teams BYU and Boise State. It was the first time since 1961 that TCU beat two top-10 opponents in the same season. TCU led the nation in total defense (217.8 yards per game) in 2008 for the third time in nine seasons. An 11-2 record in 2006 included wins over Big 12 opponents Baylor and Texas Tech as well as a 37-7 victory over Northern Illinois in the Poinsettia Bowl. The Horned Frogs’ defense ranked second nationally in run defense (60.8 yards per game) and total defense (234.9 yards per game) while placing third in scoring defense (12.3 points per game). TCU won its last eight games in 2006 by an average margin of 24.4 points. During that stretch, the TCU defense allowed per game marks of 10.8 points, 59.6 yards rushing and 185.1 in total offense. In 2005, Patterson earned Mountain West Coach of the Year honors as he led the Horned Frogs to the conference championship in their first season of league play. It was also TCU’s first outright conference championship since 1958. The Horned Frogs posted an 11-1 record for just the fourth 11win season in school history and the second in three years. TCU also recorded its first undefeated league mark (8-0) dating back to 1938. The Horned Frogs opened and closed the 2005 season with victories over Big 12 teams. Following a 27-24 EV1.net Houston Bowl win over Iowa State, Patterson saw TCU climb to ninth in the USA Today poll and 11th in the Associated Press poll. It was TCU’s highest season-ending ranking since 1959. TCU, picked to finish sixth in 2005 preseason MW polls, opened the campaign with a 17-10 victory at No. 5 Oklahoma. It was TCU’s first win against an opponent ranked that high since a 6-0 victory over No. 1 Texas in 1961. Patterson’s success in 2005 was achieved while playing a total of 21 redshirt or true freshmen, tying for fourth nationally in that category. The 2005 Horned Frog defense led the nation in turnover

margin (+21), interceptions (26) and takeaways (40). The offense set a single-season school record with 50 touchdowns while its 398 points scored ranked second all-time at TCU. In his first full season as head coach with the Horned Frogs in 2001, Patterson was 1 of only 8 coaches with no previous Division I head coaching experience to lead their teams to bowl appearances. He proceeded to take the Horned Frogs to a bowl in each of his first three years. Patterson’s 10-2 record and conference championship in the 2002 season earned him Conference USA Coach of the Year accolades. The Horned Frogs finished the season ranked 22nd in the USA Today/ESPN Coaches Poll and 23rd in the Associated Press poll. Eleven of Patterson’s career wins came in the Horned Frogs’ 2003 campaign, when TCU climbed as high as sixth in the BCS rankings - the highest ranking at that time for a school from a non-automatic qualifying conference. Under Patterson’s guidance, the Horned Frogs got off to a 10-0 start after opening the season ranked 25th in the Associated Press poll. They finished the season 11-2 and ranked in the top 25 for the second year in a row - the first time that had happened at TCU since the 1950s. His leadership of the 2003 squad made him a finalist for both the Eddie Robinson and Bobby Dodd Coach of the Year honors. Patterson amassed 18 years as an assistant coach, including three with the Horned Frogs, before taking the torch from Dennis Franchione prior to the 2000 GMAC Mobile Alabama Bowl. In 1998, Patterson’s first season at TCU, the Horned Frogs scored a school-record six defensive touchdowns and allowed only 19.6 points per game - the fewest points per game in over 30 years. It was accomplished by a team that was 1-10 the previous season. Patterson’s 1999 TCU defense ended the season ranked fifth in the country in total defense. The Horned Frogs posted two shutouts and led the Western Athletic Conference in every major defensive category. In 2000, the Horned Frogs allowed only 245.0 total yards and 9.6 points per game, ranking first in the nation in both categories. He was a finalist for the Frank Broyles National Assistant Coach of the Year award. Prior to his arrival in Fort Worth, Patterson spent two seasons (1996-97) as the defensive coordinator and safeties coach at New Mexico. Patterson’s defensive acumen dates back to his own playing days at Kansas State, where he played strong safety and outside linebacker for the Wildcats in 1980 and 1981. He served as a graduate assistant in 1982 and received his bachelor’s degree in physical education in 1983. He took the linebacker coaching position at Tennessee Tech while earning a master’s degree in educational administration in 1984. Patterson has been part of 20 bowl staffs, including one each with Kansas State, Utah State and New Mexico. The other 17 have come at TCU. Aside from being an accomplished head coach, Patterson is also a skilled guitar player. On several occasions, Patterson has entertained TCU fans with his guitar skills at pep rallies around the Fort Worth area. A native of Rozel, Kansas, Patterson is married to the former Kelsey Hayes. He has three sons: Josh, Cade and Blake.

41 59

FORT WORTH, Texas - Kenny Hill accounted for 484 yards of offense and five touchdowns and KaVontae Turpin sparked the 13th-ranked Horned Frogs with an 81-yard punt return in a 59-41 victory over South Dakota State. It was TCU’s 15th straight home-opening win. Hill was 33 of 49 for 439 yards with two touchdown passes, ran for three scores and converted a critical third down with a 13-yard scramble while the Horned Frogs were up four points in the fourth quarter. That drive ended on a 46-yard scoring pass to Taj Williams for a 52-41 lead. Williams, who had 11 catches for 158 yards, made the grab after the ball deflected several yards forward off the hands of TCU receiver Desmon White and South Dakota State linebacker Dallas Brown. Turpin started the comeback from the surprising second-quarter deficit with his return, leading the Horned Frogs to their 14th straight home win, third in the nation behind Florida State (21) and Clemson (16). The 5-foot-9 speedster tied a career-high with seven receptions while adding a 33-yard run and finishing with 177 all-purpose yards. TCU totaled 662 yards of offense and converted 11 of 15 third-down attempts. SCORE BY QUARTERS SOUTH DAKOTA STATE TCU

2OT

FORT WORTH, Texas - Austin Allen ran 5 yards for the winning score in the second overtime, and Arkansas pulled out a wild 41-38 victory over No. 15 TCU. Allen led the Razorbacks (2-0) to the tying score in the final two minutes of regulation, throwing a touchdown pass to Keon Hatcher and then catching the tying two-point conversion from the receiver with 1:03 remaining. The Horned Frogs (1-1) rallied from 13 down in the fourth quarter to take a 28-20 lead, but couldn’t hang on as their 14-game home winning streak ended in the first meeting of these former Southwest Conference rivals since 1991. TCU’s Kenny Hill threw for 377 yards and an overtime TD to Taj Williams and also had 93 yards rushing and two scores. But he couldn’t get the Horned Frogs in the end zone in the second OT, and they settled for Ryan Graf’s 37-yard field goal. KaVontae Turpin set up both of TCU’s fourth-quarter touchdowns with long catches, including on the go-ahead drive from midfield after he added nearly 25 yards on a dazzling punt return when he spun out of several tackles while somehow keeping both knees off the ground. After the Razorbacks got even, Turpin returned the kickoff 64 yards, but Arkansas’ Dan Skipper blocked Graf’s 28-yard field goal try with 10 seconds remaining. SCORE BY QUARTERS ARKANSAS TCU

Hicks scored two touchdowns for the third straight game. On the opening drive of the second half, Kenny Hill hit Hicks wide open in the end zone behind the secondary for a 31-7 lead.

FORT WORTH, Texas - Kenny Hill threw for 449 yards and five touchdowns for No. 19 TCU, including scoring strikes of 64 and 74 yards to Taj Williams in the fourth quarter, but it was not enough as the Horned Frogs fell to Oklahoma 52-46. Williams’ second scoring grab concluded a stretch of 22 consecutive points for TCU that got it within 49-46 with 5:36 left. Williams finished with five catches for 210 yards, the fourth-best single-game total in TCU history. Hill’s five touchdown passes tied for the second-most in a game at TCU. A sack by TCU safety Denzel Johnson on the game’s opening series forced a fumble recovered by Travin Howard. Hill then connected with Jaelan Austin for an 18-yard scoring pass on the Horned Frogs’ first snap, just 49 seconds into the game. After giving up 21 points in the first quarter for the first time in 20 years, the Sooners went ahead to stay with 28 consecutive points in the second quarter.

LAWRENCE, Kan. - Similar to past meetings against Kansas, the TCU Horned Frogs found themselves in another tight game with the Jayhawks before outlasting them 24-23. Kansas took a 23-14 lead late in the third quarter on Ryan Willis’ 21yard run, but TCU answered early in the fourth. On third-and-12 in its own territory, Kenny Hill scrambled and was stripped of the ball but no whistle was blown. Hill picked up the ball and darted around the field for a gain of 34 yards. A facemask penalty added 15 extra yards to put TCU in scoring position. Two plays later, Hill connected with Jaelan Austin for the touchdown to pull the Horned Frogs within 23-21. With under four minutes remaining, TCU pieced together a 59-yard drive capped by a Brandon Hatfield 34-yard field goal to take a 24-23 lead with 1:21 to play. Kansas had 81 seconds to make something happen. Willis was sacked on back-to-back plays by Josh Carraway to put Kansas at third-and-23 on its 30-yard line. Willis avoided getting sacked for a third straight down and ran out of bounds. On fourth down, Willis threw the ball to Sims, who lateraled it to Bobby Hartzog for a first down in TCU territory. Matthew Wyman then missed a 54-yard field goal as time expired.

TCU 10 NO. 12 WEST VIRGINIA 34 MORGANTOWN, W.Va. - Skyler Howard threw four touchdown passes and No. 12 West Virginia’s improving defense held TCU scoreless in the second half of a 34-10 win. In improving to 6-0, West Virginia is off to its best start since winning its first seven games in 2006. Howard had first-half TD tosses of 10, 22 and 11 yards to three different receivers to stake West Virginia to a 21-10 halftime lead. Howard finished 16 of 23 passing for 231 yards. West Virginia used scoring drives of 11 and 15 plays in the third quarter to eat up most of the clock. The bright spot for the Horned Frogs was running back Kyle Hicks, who had 103 rushing yards on 15 carries. TCU had only five second-half possessions and was victimized by three turnovers.

FORT WORTH, Texas - Clayton Hatfield kicked a 37-yard field goal in the second overtime and TCU fell to Texas Tech 27-24. A week after matching an FBS record with 734 yards passing in a 66-59 loss to Oklahoma, Patrick Mahomes went 24 of 39 for 206 yards with two touchdowns and an interception as Texas Tech (4-4, 2-3) ended a three-game losing streak. TCU forced the second overtime on Desmon White’s incredible 25-yard TD catch from backup quarterback Foster Sawyer. White caught the pass despite having a defender on his hip, and secured the ball against his helmet to complete the score. The play stood after officials did a replay review of the catch. The Horned Frogs had the ball to start the second overtime. But Brandon Hatfield, not related to the Texas Tech kicker, missed a 40-yard field goal attempt. The previous two times the teams met in Fort Worth, they combined for 109 points both times. Tech won 56-53 in triple overtime in 2012, and TCU broke Big 12 and school records in an 82-27 win two years ago. The Frogs won 55-52 in Lubbock last year.

WACO, Texas - Kyle Hicks ran for a career-high 192 yards and five touchdowns and TCU beat 13th-ranked Baylor 62-22. The points scored for TCU and its margin of victory set school records in the 112-game series history with Baylor. Hicks’ five TDs were one short of LaDainian Tomlinson’s TCU mark set in November 1999, when he ran for 406 yards against UTEP in what was then the single-game major college record. Both teams scored touchdowns in the first minute of the game. After the Bears reached the end zone on the second play of the contest, Kenny Hill hit Taj Williams for a 37-yard score on TCU’s second snap of the ensuing series. That was the first of 31consecutive points for the Horned Frogs, including two touchdowns in seven seconds, on their way to handing Baylor its most lopsided loss at home since a 62-0 defeat to Texas 11 years ago. Ranthony Texada returned an interception 28 yards for a score to make it 31-7 early in the second quarter. That came right after Hicks spun away from two tacklers and broke free from another while weaving through defenders for a 22-yard TD run on a fourth-and-2 play.

FORT WORTH, Texas - No. 13 Oklahoma State won its seventh straight game with a 31-6 decision over TCU. The game was scoreless until late in the first quater. After recovering a fumbled punt return at the Oklahoma State 6, TCU scored two plays later. A 4-yard Kenny Hill pass to KaVontae Turpin gave the Horned Frogs a 6-0 lead. Trailing 10-6, TCU had a chance to take the lead in the final minute of the first half after a 40-yard run by quarterback Kenny Hill. However, a fourth down pass into the end zone with three seconds left fell incomplete. Oklahoma State scored on its only two drives in the third quarter to go ahead 24-6. Chris Carson had a 19-yard TD run and Mason Rudolph scored on a 2-yard keeper after a 63-yard pass to Chris Lacy.

AUSTIN, Texas - Quarterback Kenny Hill ran for two touchdowns to key a TCU ground attack that totaled 309 yards, including 287 in the second half, as the Horned Frogs beat Texas, 31-9, for the third straight season. Hill scored TCU’s first touchdown with a 4-yard run that capped the Horned Frogs’ opening possession. He was 6-of-6 in the air for 65 yards on the drive. Hill scored again in the third quarter on a 41-yard scamper that saw him break away from a pass rush and dart along the right sideline to the end zone for a 17-9 lead. TCU took control in the fourth quarter when Trevorris Johnson capped a 97-yard touchdown drive with a 5-yard TD and Darius Anderson ran 70 yards for a score. The Horned Frogs’ defense kept the Longhorns out of the end zone, including a second quarter goal-line stand. Texas was limited to just three field goals.

FORT WORTH, Texas - Jesse Ertz ran for a career-high 170 yards with a touchdown and threw an 83-yard scoring pass as Kansas State ended its regular season with a 30-6 win at TCU on a drizzly Saturday. The Wildcats, who won for the fifth time in six games, went ahead for good when Ertz broke free for a 32-yard TD run in the second quarter to make it 10-3. Right after halftime, Ertz threw a quick slant to Byron Pringle, who caught the ball near Kansas State’s 30 and took off sprinting down the middle of the field on the 83-yard catch-and-run score. He escaped a defender diving at his ankles before going the final 20 yards. Justin Silmon added 133 yards and had both of his TDs after halftime for the Wildcats, who had 336 yards rushing.

FORT WORTH, Texas — The Centre eleven sprang something new to Southwestern football when they appeared on the field with their eyes black to keep the sun out of their eyes. All of the backfield men and ends were fixed in this manner to keep the glare out when going down on passes. Centre College of Danville, Ky., the “team of a thousand titles” swamped Texas Christian University New Year’s Day at Panther Park, the home of the Southwest’s baseball champions, by the score of 63 to 7. But in winning by such an apparently lopsided score, they didn’t take one bit of glory from the Texas gridders who gave 7,000 spectators a great thrill by putting across the first score and playing with such vim throughout that but few persons left the field until the shades of night had enveloped the players on both sides and made their movements almost a matter of guesswork. Probably the greatest attraction of the majority of the 7,000 was the fact that “Bo” McMillin, football player extraordinary, was in the fray. There were others there, too—Rowson and Douglass; and Jackson, who became a hero overnight in the first few moments of the game by grabbing a forward pass and dashing almost the full length of the field to a touchdown.

NEW ORLEANS, La. — Bernie Moore, coach of the LSU foot­ball team, was skep­ti­cal that TCU’s 3 to 2 vic­to­r y in the Sug­ar Bowl game was a con­clu­sive test of the squads. “My con­clu­sion of the game was that the slippery field elim­i­nat­ed at least 30 percent of the offensive power of both teams,” he said. Dutch Meyer, coach of TCU, said he thought the contest before a capacity crowd of 35,000 was the “finest I’ve ever seen played in the rain.” Yesterday’s “baseball score” game was a thriller which kept the spectators in their seats despite a slow rain which fell through­out the second half ... LSU scored in the sec­ond quarter after passes and runs brought the ball to the TCU two-inch line where it changed hands on downs. When (Sammy) Baugh at­tempt­ed to pass from behind the goal line he stepped over the end zone, automatically giving LSU a safety for a two-point lead. The Texans came back in the same period to recover a Louisiana fumble on the Lou­i­si­ana 40 and pushed down to the LSU 16. Taldon Manton then kicked a field goal from the Tiger 26. From that point on the game was a battle of mighty defensives.. TCU played most of the game minus the services of three of her brightest stars — Left Halfback George Kline, All-American Cen­ter Darrell Lester and Halfback Rex Clark ... Clark played only one down and that was by the cour­te­sy of Coach Meyer who wanted the injured senior star to be able to say he played in the 1936 Sugar Bowl game ... Baugh made the longest run of the day — a 44-yard gallop.

DALLAS — With a sling-back attack that whipped over a field goal and two touch­downs in the first 25 min­utes of play and with a stur­dy de­fense that piled up the Marquette Golden Av­a­lanche, TCU cap­tured a spectacular football game here this New Year’s Day. The score in the Cotton Bowl classic was 16-6. So sudden, sharp and dazzling was the sweep of action of the battle that 15,000 spec­ta­tors, who braved threat­en­ing weather, forgot the gray gloom of the afternoon. Led by Sammy Baugh, who out-passed and outplayed “Buzz” Buivid to cinch his claim to the title of the greatest passer of the season, the Texans uncorked an offense that flared into long gains both on the ground and in the air. Although it was Baugh who paced the attack and won the attention of the crowd, it was L.D. Meyer who did the real damage.. He scored all of TCU’s 16 points. He kicked a 33-yard field goal for the first three points in the opening minutes. Before the first quarter had ended, Meyer col­lab­o­rat­ed with Sambo on a 55yard pass-and-run gain for the first Frog TD, and in the second quarter he took an 18-yard heave from Vic Mont­gom­ery for the last score. Meyer even converted after the first touchdown. A 60-yard punt return by Art Guepe in the first quarter accounted for all of Marquette’s points.

NEW ORLEANS, La. — It was with pow­er, passes and kick­ing that the Chris­tians made the two touch­downs and one field goal that en­abled them to win, 15-7. Carnegie’s most consis­tent method of at­tack was a bristling, quick-start­ ing and hard-hitting offense, but it was with a brilliant 38-yard pass in the last seconds of the first half that the Skibos scored ... The second half started with the Pittsburghers lead­ing, 7-6. The first time they got possession of the hoghide, the Frogs proved irresistible. Moving with giant strides, they went 80 yards and a touchdown on five plays. TCU punted one time. That fact alone indicates ac­cu­rate­ly how fearfully effective was the ground-gain­ing ma­neu­vers of the big white-shirted representatives ... The one punt figured in making TCU’s first touchdown ... When the Skibos punted out, the TCU regulars took over and went 48 yards on 11 plays to take a 6-0 lead ... Carnegie took the next kickoff and went to town with big, fast and tough George Muha doing most of the dirty work ... Earl Clark in­ter­cept­ed a pass and ran 25 yards to the Carnegie 35 yard-line, but Durward Horner, a TCU end, had been offsides so the play was called back ... It was on fourth down of this series of plays that Petey Moroz cut loose with his long fine pass for the Carnegie touchdown ... The third quar­ter (Davey) O’Brien passed to Horner down the middle ... The end caught the ball between two Skibos, but evaded both of them and ran 24 yards across the goal line.

MIAMI, Fla. — In the wildest, weird­est foot­ball battle ever waged in this cor­ner of the coun­try, the Geor­gia Bull­dogs outscored the cou­ra­geous TCU Horned Frogs 40-26 ... Coach Wally Butts’ fast team, well-equipped on ground and in the air, almost chased the Frogs off the field for 35 minutes... The score mounted to 40-7 with only a few minutes played in the second half. But the Frogs are not quitters ... Everything was against them. They couldn’t hold the enemy, they couldn’t move them­selves and they were battered and weary from their empty-handed efforts. But there was too much tradition behind those purple shirts. Sud­den­ly, almost as if a fresh wind had blown into the stadium, the tide turned. They knocked over three touch­downs in rapid order. They turned back every Georgia thrust. The great come­back in the last 25 minutes saved the Frogs from humiliation. Bruce Alford was the Frog star ... He blocked a punt, he made two great catches for touch­downs... After the rest period, Texas sup­port­ers hoped for a rally. But Georgia stepped out and banged 80 yards for still another touchdown that promised to make it a rout ... From that moment to the final gun it was the Bulldogs who held on and the Frogs who ripped.

DALLAS — With speed, spirit and spiraling pass­es, the Cow­boys of Okla­ho­ma A&M com­plete­ly out-classed the TCU Horned Frogs in the ninth annual Cot­ton Bowl football game here this crys­tal clear New Year’s af­ ter­noon to win, 34-0. Except for the second quarter when they staved off repeated threats, the Frogs were never able to cope with the double-pronged attack ... The first touch­down, scored in the fifth minute, climaxed a 59-yard advance. The second whirled 61 yards, the third 62 yards, the fourth 40 yards and the fifth 66 yards . The Frogs moved on the ground sev­er­al times when in their own territory, but after cross­ing the 50-yard line they were always thwarted by the bulling tactics of the burly Cowboy line ... Only once did the Frogs get inside the A&M 35-yard line and that was on a pass in­ter­cep­tion. Bob Ruff was the only TCU back who was able to gain with any consistency, although Jesse Mason did some good work for a short time. Coach Dutch Meyer tried all kinds of defenses against the Aggies, including a seven-man line which moved fullback Cox into the line. None of them worked for more than a few minutes at a time. The Aggies were too good in too many different ways.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — Trail­ing a hard-trying TCU team by nine points, the great Charley Conerly sud­den­ly soared to the dra­mat­ic heights of foot­ ball throw­ing expected of him. In just five min­utes his rifle arm ac­count­ed for two touch­downs as the Con­fed­er­ates bested the Chris­tians, 13-9, in the first Delta Bowl game. In the closing minutes of the third period, Conerly launched a passing flurry that carried exactly 80 yards in eight plays ... The Frogs, still going strong, marched right back to the Rebel 37 where an intercepted pass sat Conerly up in business again. This time he threw only two passes... and they ate up just 63 yards to win the ball game. In more ways than one, it was a tough game for the Frogs to lose... But they fumbled badly, losing the ball twice at crucial moments. There were nine minutes yet to play and the Frogs gave the enemy fans a heart attack by holding the leather. Just six of them from their one-yard line, where Otis Kelvey was dropped on the kickoff, the Chris­tians powered right up field for 59 yards... But the last threat died when Knox’s pass was batted up and intercepted by the Ole Miss linebacker on the Reb 38.

DALLAS — TCU, dis­tress­ing­ly flat except for one mag­nif­i­cent minute-and-half surge late in the third quarter, suc­ ceed­ed only in making it a mas­terpiece of frustration. And so the four-timesbeat­en Wild­cats from the Blue­grass State thor­ough­ly trounced the South­west Con­fer­ence cham­pi­ons before a capacity throng of 75,349 ... 20-7. Ken­tucky scored on two surges of 52 and 57 yards in the first and second quarters to post its 13-0 halftime lead. Frogs, who had bogged down once on the four, wasted another 59-yard push to the 24 early in the second quarter. Here, Clark in­ter­cept­ed a Mal Fowler pass returned to the Kentucky 43 and the Wildcats tromped on from here for 57 yards and another touch­down in 11 plays ... TCU made its 48-yard move to the five after this and came back later in the quarter with its 51-yard march to the one all for nothing ... (Gilbert) Bartosh drew his first chance of the game ... Here Bartosh called a direct snap — back Bobby Jack Floyd went 43 yards for touchdown on the longest run of the day. Against the wind in the fourth Bartosh guided the Frogs 40 yards ... The TCU com­mand sent in McKown to punt and he obliged with his neat kick-out on the 8. But here, where holding ’em was imperative for TCU, Tom Fillion broke loose for 17 yards on a third-down-seven-to-go-play ... Ken­tucky held the ball, put TCU in the hole with the kick and Bartosh was spilled for losses.

(TCU) ac­tu­ al­ly lost the game for being in motion on a conversion effort. They made the 14th point on the first try, but because a player was in motion, they had to try again from five yards farther back, and missed. They probably lost the game on the opening kickoff when quarterback Chuck Curtis made the mistake of re­ceiv­ing and run­ning with the ball. He was so badly injured when tackled that he never returned to action ... In spite of the handicap, the Horned Frogs scored a touch­down in the first quarter and count­ed in the second to lead 13-0 before the Rebels got their first touchdown to make it 13-7 at the half ... Mississippi won the game in the 11th minute of the fourth quarter ... Billy Lott scored on a five-yard gallop around his right wing. The Rebs’ winning move traveled exactly the same distance as their first touchdown pa­rade: 66 yards ... The Frogs went 44 and 75 yards for their touch­downs. – Fort Worth Star-Telegram

DALLAS — Harold Pollard’s four-for-four con­ ver­sions and the block­ing of Syr­a­cuse’s third point-af­ ter-touch­down at­tempt by (Chico) Mendoza pro­duced a 28-27 Cotton Bowl victory for TCU after 18 years of wait­ing. The Frogs had dropped five suc­ces­sive bowl ap­pear­anc­es and had not recorded a post-season triumph since 1939. It was a moving of­fen­sive show all the way with the TCU passing providing a balance Syracuse couldn’t stop and the Saltine Warriors riding pow­er­ful­ly on a running game spear­head­ed by the All-America halfback, Jim Brown. He gained 132 yards and was voted the game’s out­stand­ ing back. The Frogs’ All-American tackle, Norman Hamilton, was the one defender who came nearest to stop­ping Brown con­sis­ tent­ly and he was chosen as the game’s out­stand­ing lineman. Syr­a­cuse scored in the last two min­utes to give the game its touch of such hair-breadth close­ness. For much of the afternoon it was TCU’s game and a couple of times seemed on the verge of turning decisive. There was a unique twist to the first-half scoring in that each team intercepted passes and then drove 70 yards to score and each recovered fumbles and pushed out short yardage for the second touchdowns.

DALLAS — The gen­tle­ men operating the scoreboard had the easiest occupation in all land as the South­west Con­fer­ence champions (TCU) and the future gen­er­als (Air Force Academy) from Col­o­rado Springs played the sec­ond 0-0 dead­lock in the 23-year history of the New Year’s Day clas­sic ... It was the fourth tie game ever unreeled before a Cotton Bowl assemblage ... It was a dis­ap­point­ing final for both clubs. The Horned Frogs took the field bearing an 8-2 record. The Falcons were unbeaten in 10 games and had their season immaculate but for a tie with Iowa. The Frogs fum­bled the ball on eight occasions and on three of these wasted possession. One of these came early in the final period and surely tried the composure of Coach Abe Martin as he saw the Falcons reclaim a bobble just eight steps from the Air Force Academy’s end zone. The field, covered by tarpaulin during the snow fall earlier in the week, was damp and contributed to the uneasy handling of the ball. The visiting Falcons also had difficulty retaining the sphere and lost control on three of their five fumbles. Jack Spikes attempted both of TCU’s field goals, the first early in the opening period ... The Airmen offered their severest threat midway of the second quarter ... It was here that the Frog line gave its best performance, restraining the Silver and Blue on the six, the spot from where George Pupich missed a field goal.

HOUSTON — The Frogs were drowned, 23-7, by a dead­ly sprin­kle of Clemson pass­es in a sev­en-minute pe­ri­od of the final quarter ... The sud­den Clemson scor­ing flood washed away a 7-3 lead TCU carried into the fatal final period. A narrow margin, but one that, at the time, appeared enough to send the luckless Tigers down to their fourth straight bowl defeat ... Neither team had threat­ened se­ri­ous­ly after Clemson’s second quar­ter 22-yard field goal by Lon Armstrong, and TCU’s lone touch­down, a 19-yard pass from Jack Redding to Harry Moreland with 5:45 left in the first half. Clemson had completed only one gaining pass all af­ter­noon, that a 5-yard throw from Tiger quar­ ter­back Harvey White. White must have spotted the silver lining in the gath­er­ing dark­ness for Tiger hopes. He took plenty of time behind the mam­moth line and arched a long, high shot toward right end Gary Barnes, racing past TCU’s Larry Dawson at the Frog 35. Armstrong added the extra point ... Two plays after the kickoff, Armstrong las­soed a pass from TCU quar­ter­back Donald George ... From there, Lowndes Shingler, over­whelm­ing­ly voted out­ stand­ing back, came back to guide the Tigers for the final slap on the cheek to a proud TCU team which had gained wide respect as the class of the Southwest Con­fer­ence, winning seven games to finish in a 3-way tie for the title.

EL PASO, Texas. — The Min­ers sulked off the field with a 10-point deficit at the in­ter­mis­sion, but then pumped up Billy Stevens’ arm and Joe Cook’s foot and even­tu­al­ly de­flat­ed the Frogs, 13-12. Stevens, who gained sec­ond rank among the nation’s passers this season, proved his stardom to TCU by racking up 208 yards on 21 pass completions, the most ever against an Abe Martin team. The skinny sophomore had only seven strikes in the first half as the ball-con­trol­ling Frogs rammed into a 10-0 lead. Stevens made the 31st annual post season game a vastly different story in the second half. Stevens shot a 34-yard touchdown pass to 165-pound flanker Chuck Hughes and a star­tling comeback was be­gun ... The Miners drove 70 yards for a tying 21-yard field goal by Cook... Texas Western, a raging de­fen­sive team by this time, hopped on a TCU fumble at the Frog 29. Cook kicked an 18-yard three-pointer FG four plays deep in the final period to boot the Miners into a 13-10 cushion. TCU’s final two points were a gift. With 43 seconds left in the game ... The Miner quarterback raced back in his end zone for a safety ... The Frogs got their last chance. They could get only eight yards before the clock ran out. Although Stevens won the great air race in the end, TCU’s senior quar­ter­back, Kent Nix got a head start. David Smith hauling in Nix’s 11-yard pass for the score ... The Frogs had another scoring op­por­tu­ni­t y in the first period ... (Bruce) Alford missed a kick from the 28.

HOUSTON — What had promise of being the ex­cit­ing fin­ish to an “unbelievable” season turned clos­er to a nightmare ... at least un­til TCU’s dramatic, fourthquarter come­back restored some de­gree of re­spect to the out­come in the 25th edition of the Blue­b­on­net Bowl. The final score was West Virginia 31, TCU 14. But for the Horned Frogs there were lots of dips and swerves along the way. For starters, a 21-point West Virginia blitz during a 14-minute span of the first half had some­what of a sobering effect on the Purples. So did the loss of All-American running back Kenneth Davis, to a knee injury, in the early moments of the postseason classic. After being shoved up and down the field by the Mountaineers’ offense (355 yards), while countering with little punch themselves (148 yards) during the first 30 minutes, the Horned Frogs did make a contest of it after the in­ter­mis­sion, scoring the only touchdown of the second half while mount­ing a couple of other drives which nearly resulted in points. Much of TCU’s second half turnaround was due to the passing arm of senior Anthony Gulley who finished with 150 yards passing in­clud­ing TD tosses to Dan Sharp and Keith Burnett. Senior re­ceiv­er James Maness caught five passes for 90 yards but was no match sta­tis­tical­ly for the six-catch, 152-yard performance of WVU light­ning bug.

SHREVEPORT, La. — A de­cade slipped by before TCU’s Horned Frogs re­sur­ faced from obliv­i­on into the post-season... The Frogs most­ly slipped however, as they trudged and muddied them­selves on the raindrenched field of In­de­pen­ dence Stadium... Some 27,242 fans – a ma­jor­i­t y of them TCU sup­port­ers – withstood the temp­tation to stay home ... The view be­came pains­ tak­ing­ly clear no mat­ter the van­tage point ... Vir­gin­ia proved too good for these up­start Frogs and captured its first bowl tri­umph in five attempts since 1987 with the 20-10 victory ... “We can’t use the field as an excuse in any way,” TCU coach Pat Sullivan said. “I couldn’t be more proud of our foot­ball team, but we weren’t quite good enough in a couple of ways.” The 15th-ranked Cav­a­liers (9-3) dom­i­nat­ed at the point of attack, where so many games will be won or lost ... The Frogs and their South­west Con­fer­ence-leading offense, which av­er­aged 411.6 yards per game dur­ing the regular season, sus­tained nothing on this chilly, wet night. Vir­gin­ia, which en­tered the con­test with the na­tion’s No. 1-ranked defensive unit against the run, surrendered only 191 yards and 11 first downs to the Frogs. The running of junior tailback Andre Davis, who rushed for 97 yards on 24 carries, failed to provide enough offense on a night when (quarterback Max) Knake struggled. “The truth of it is I played terrible,” said Knake. “If I could have played better, there may have been a different outcome.”

1998 SUN BOWL

TCU 2 8, USC 19 ∙­­­ Dec. 31, 19 9 8 EL PASO, Texas — With only six wins, many thought TCU was not worthy of a bowl appearance. But, the Horned Frogs proved their critics wrong in a big way. Basil Mitchell rushed for 185 yards and two touchdowns on only 19 carries as TCU earned its first bowl victory in 41 years with a 28-19 win over USC in the 65th Sun Bowl. Quarterback Patrick Batteaux added 94 yards and two scores for TCU, which recorded its first post-season win since defeating Syracuse in the 1957 Cotton Bowl. TCU (7-5) dominated the line of scrimmage, rushing for 314 yards while holding USC to a Sun Bowl record minus-23, breaking by two yards the mark set by Florida State in 1951. The Trojans (8-5) also posted the lowest rushing total in school history, eclipsing the previous record of minus-11 yards against Iowa in 1976. Mitchell fell just short of Charles Alexander’s Sun Bowl rushing record of 197 yards. He opened the scoring with a threeyard run 7:07 into the first quarter. True freshman Carson Palmer completed 17-of-28 passes for a season-best 280 yards to rally USC. The Horned Frogs put away the game by chewing more than six minutes off the clock before pinning USC inside its 15 with less than two minutes remaining. -gofrogs.com

MOBILE, Ala. — LaDainian Tomlinson ran for 124 yards and two touchdowns to lead TCU to a 28-14 victory over No. 20 East Carolina in the inaugural Mobile Alabama Bowl. It was the second consecutive bowl upset for TCU (8-4). East Carolina (9-3) entered the game as six-point favorites. That didn’t bother the Horned Frogs, who completely shut down the Pirates’ running game, holding them to minus-16 yards. East Carolina went into the game focusing on stopping Tomlinson, whose 1,850 yards edged Heisman Trophy winner Ron Dayne for the NCAA Division I rushing title. TCU, which alternated between quarterbacks Casey Printers and Patrick Batteaux, made it impossible for the Pirates to adjust. Early in the first quarter, Printers gained seven yards on an option run to move TCU to the 2. Batteaux came in on the next play and pitched the ball to Tomlinson, who ran in for the touchdown. That tied the game at 7 and TCU slowly pulled away from there. East Carolina, which couldn’t run the ball at all against TCU, had to go to the air in the second half. It initially worked, but early in the fourth quarter, Russell Gary intercepted Garrard’s pass and returned it 32 yards for a touchdown. That gave TCU a 28-14 lead with 14:04 to play.

MOBILE, Ala. — Jeff Kelly’s 28-yard touchdown pass to freshman Kenny Johnson with eight seconds left lifted Southern Miss to a 28-21 victory over No. 13 TCU in the Mobile Alabama Bowl. In the first major bowl game of the season, TCU tailback LaDainian Tomlinson ran for 118 yards, his lowest total of the season. The Heisman Trophy finalist carried 28 times and scored two TDs in the third quarter. Southern Miss (8-4) got a second chance after a fourth missed field goal, and trusted their senior quarterback instead of the shaky kicking game. With 33 seconds left, they took over at the TCU 43-yard line after Mobile native Etric Pruitt got a hand on John Braziel’s punt. Kelly threw two incompletions, then scrambled 14 yards for a first down. On the next play, he lofted a perfect strike over the middle just above safety LaVar Veale’s outstretched arm, victimizing the nation’s top defense. The Horned Frogs (10-2) endured a December coaching change and uncertainty over who would lead them into the game. In the end, former defensive coordinator Gary Patterson replaced Dennis Franchione on the sidelines. Franchione left for Alabama Dec. 1 and was initially expected to coach the bowl game. TCU officials decided late last week to allow the Patterson era to begin a season early. -gofrogs.com

HOUSTON — Byron Jones intercepted three passes in his first start and Joe Weber scored two touchdowns, helping Texas A&M end a four-game bowl losing streak with a 28-9 victory over TCU (6-6) in the galleryfurniture .com Bowl. The Aggies (8-4) beat their former Southwest Conference rivals for the 24th straight time. Weber, voted offensive player of the game, broke a 7-7 second-quarter tie with a 2-yard touchdown run and added a 14-yard run that put the Aggies in control with 1:14 left in the third quarter. TCU’s Casey Printers was intercepted four times. Jones earned MVP honors and also was the defensive player of the game with three tackles. Starting in place of injured Sean Weston, Jones had only two broken-up passes on his defensive chart in 11 games before he returned his first interception 62 yards in the first quarter to the Frog 35. The Aggies couldn’t score on that chance but Jones had a 15-yard interception to the TCU 1-yard line in the second quarter, setting up Mark Farris’ quarterback keeper for the score. Charlie Owens scooped up a fumble by A&M running back Derek Farmer and returned it 89 yards for a TCU touchdown with four minutes left in the half for a 7-7 tie. It was the second longest fumble return in school history.

MEMPHIS, Tenn. — TCU figured out how to stop Colorado State standout Cecil Sapp after just two runs in the Liberty Bowl. Sapp reeled off big gains of 59 and 25 yards on the Rams’ first two possessions, but had 22 yards the rest of the game, and TCU tailback Ricky Madison stole the show with 111 yards rushing and a touchdown as the Horned Frogs beat No. 23 Colorado State 17-3 Tuesday. It was the Horned Frogs’ 500th victory in school history. Madison ran for 107 of his yards in the rainy second half as TCU’s offense came alive after a sloppy opening by both teams. In the first half, the teams combined for three lost fumbles, two interceptions, a missed field goal and an unsuccessful faked field goal. Their sloppy play made for the lowest scoring first half of a Liberty Bowl since Penn State led Tulane 6-0 in 1979. TCU (10-2) finally put together a seven-play, 62-yard scoring drive led by Lonta Hobbs in the closing minutes of the second quarter. The freshman ran for 39 yards in the drive, capped when Sean Stilley threw a 15-yard touchdown pass to LaTarence Dunbar with 1:21 remaining to put TCU up 7-0 at the break. The Rams were held to 89 yards rushing - compared with 197 for TCU - for their lowest total of the season. TCU also outgained Colorado State 338-149.

FORT WORTH — Ryan Dinwiddie, who ended his career as the most efficient passer in college football, threw for 325 yards and three touchdowns to lead the No. 18 Broncos (13-1) to a 34-31 win Tuesday night over No. 19 TCU in the inaugural Fort Worth Bowl. Their bowl win on TCU’s campus wasn’t secured until sophomore Mike Wynn was well short on a 51-yard field goal attempt, the first kick in his college career, with 7 seconds left. TCU (11-2) had its school-record 13-game home winning streak snapped. The Frogs had been in contention for a Bowl Championship Series spot until their only regular-season loss Nov. 20 and then turned down an invitation to last week’s GMAC Bowl because it conflicted with exams. Dinwiddie hit 19 of 35 passes with two interceptions, but his last touchdown was an 18-yarder to Derek Schouman for the winning score with 12:43 left. “I thought we beat them on both sides of the football. Three big plays beat us,” TCU coach Gary Patterson said. “There’s a reason they’ve won a lot of games.”

HOUSTON — Peter LoCoco hit a 44-yard field goal with 5:25 left in the game to put TCU on top 27-24 and the defense held Iowa State in check on the ensuing drive for the victory at Reliant Stadium. The TCU defense forced four Iowa State turnovers and Robert Merrill reached the century mark in rushing yards for the 10th time in his career as he ran for 109 yards on 11carries with a touchdown to help lead the Frogs to the win. TCU scored on its opening two possessions for a 14-0 lead just 6:36 into the contest. The two touchdowns came in a 1:55 span. The Horned Frogs took the opening kickoff and drove 80 yards in 12 plays, capped by a 20-yard Merrill touchdown run. On the second play of Iowa State’s ensuing possession, Jeremy Modkins forced a fumble that was recovered by Drew Coleman, giving the Frogs possession at the Cyclone 21. Three plays later, an Aaron Brown 7-yard scoring run extended TCU’s lead to 14-0. Iowa State scored 17 points in a 4:30 stretch of the second quarter to take a 17-14 lead with 10:30 left in the first half. The Cyclones’ third turnover of the first half, a fumble recovery by David Roach, led to the Frogs going back on top. The first snap of TCU’s ensuing series saw Jeff Ballard connect on an 84-yard touchdown pass to Michael DePriest to give the Frogs a 21-17 lead with 4:05 left.

FORT WORTH — RySAN DIEGO — Penned in by a bunch of tough Horned Frogs, Garrett Wolfe had nowhere to run. The national rushing leader was held to 28 yards, a whopping 130 below his average, and No. 25 TCU won a Poinsettia Bowl mismatch against Northern Illinois 37-7. While Wolfe was repeatedly stuffed by one of the nation’s best defenses, led by end Tommy Blake, Horned Frogs quarterback Jeff Ballard ran for three touchdowns and threw for another. Ballard looked like more of a running back as he scored on runs of 10, 1 and 6 yards. He threw a 6-yard TD pass to tight end Brent Hecht and finished with 258 passing yards. TCU’s Lonta Hobbs rushed for 114 yards and one TD. Wolfe came in leading the nation with an average of 158.3 yards rushing and 178.9 all-purpose yards. The Horned Frogs, though, were fourth nationally in run defense after allowing only 67.6 yards per game. TCU kept alive its string of not allowing a 100-yard rusher, one of only four teams to do so this year. Wolfe, who carried 20 times, came dangerously close to his career-low of 24 yards set in his first game, the 2004 season opener. The Huskies had only five first downs and 60 yards of total offense, compared to 23 first downs and 456 yards for TCU.

2007 TEXAS BOWL

TCU 2 0, Houston 13 ∙­­­ Dec. 28, 2 007 HOUSTON — Justin Watts had scored exactly one touchdown in his career at TCU before the Texas Bowl. TD No. 2 marked the go-ahead touchdown early in the fourth quarter to help TCU to a 20-13 win over Houston. The junior wove through the defense and danced into the end zone for an 8-yard touchdown run that made it 17-10 and gave TCU (8-5) its first lead of the game against its old Southwest Conference rival. He and Ryan Christian split carries against Houston (8-5) after starter Joseph Turner injured his knee in the first quarter and didn’t return. Quarterback Andy Dalton also ran for a touchdown for TCU. Dalton was 21-of-30 for 249 yards with one interception. Watts and Christian combined for 88 yards rushing on 12 carries. A 15-yard leaping reception by Jimmy Young on third down kept the drive that ended in Watts’ touchdown going. Young outjumped Carson Blackmon to grab the ball and managed to keep his left leg in bounds as he landed. It was initially ruled an incomplete pass, but the call was overturned after a review by officials. The Cougars had a chance to tie it with less than 30 seconds to play but Case Keenum’s pass sailed just beyond the fingertips of Jeron Harvey in the end zone. He had two more shots at the end zone, but the ball fell short on the first one and Chase Ortiz hit him as he threw the second one to end the game. -Associated Press

SAN DIEGO — Joseph Turner dove into the end zone for the winning score, and LaDainian Tomlinson went nuts on the sideline. Turner’s 17-yard run midway through the fourth quarter gave the No. 11 Horned Frogs their first lead of the night, during a 17-16 victory over No. 9 and previously undefeated Boise State in the Poinsettia Bowl. BSU was trying to finish 13-0 for the second time in three seasons. The Broncos took a 10-0 lead on Ian Johnson’s 20-yard touchdown run midway through the first quarter, but their high-scoring offense bogged down against TCU’s fast, aggressive defense. TCU piled up yards if not points until finally wearing down the Broncos’ defense in the fourth quarter. The Horned Frogs moved 80 yards in 10 plays on the winning drive, with Turner finishing it off by shedding a tackle inside the 5-yard line and diving into the end zone for a 17-13 lead. After Turner’s TD, Boise State got to the TCU 14 before having to settle for Kyle Brotzman’s 33-yard field goal to pull to 17-16. The Broncos got the ball back with 6 seconds left on their 33 and tried to lateral the ball after a catch, but Jeremy Childs’ desperation flip was grabbed by TCU’s Matt Panfil. TCU outgained Boise State 472 yards to 250.

PHOENIX, Ariz. — Boise State reached into its bag of tricks again and stunned TCU in a Fiesta Bowl duel of unbeaten BCS busters. It was the first time two schools from leagues without automatic BCS bids have met in one of college football’s biggest bowls. After the Broncos pulled off a gutsy fake punt at their own 33-yard line, Doug Martin scored the decisive touchdown to give No. 6 Boise State a 17-10 victory over third-ranked TCU. A 10-10 stalemate came alive when punter Kyle Brotzman hit wide-open Kyle Efaw with a 30-yard strike with about 9 minutes to play. Four plays later, Martin dove over a tackler from 2 yards out as the Broncos became the second school ever to go 14-0, joining Ohio State in 2002. The Broncos caught the Horned Frogs napping on the fake punt by Brotzman. Kellen Moore then completed three straight passes to advance to the 2, and Martin scored to put Boise State up 17-10 with 7:21 to go. TCU took over at its own 1 with 1:06 remaining and marched to the Boise State 30 before cornerback Brandyn Thompson disrupted a pass by Andy Dalton, and Winston Venable picked it off to end the threat. Thompson set up the winning drive with his second interception of the game. He returned his first pick 51 yards for the game’s first score. TCU’s touchdown came on a 30-yard pass from Dalton to Curtis Clay that pulled the Frogs to within 10-7 at halftime.

#3 TCU 21, #5 Wisconsin 19 ­­­∙ Jan. 1, 2011 PASADENA, Calif. — Andy Dalton threw a touchdown pass and ran for a score, linebacker Tank Carder swatted down a 2-point conversion pass attempt with 2 minutes to play, and No. 3 TCU completed a perfect season with its first Rose Bowl victory, 21-19 over fourth-ranked Wisconsin on Saturday. Bart Johnson caught an early TD pass and recovered a late onside kick for the Mountain West champion Horned Frogs (13-0), who followed up their second straight unbeaten regular season by busting the BCS in dramatic fashion. Dalton passed for 219 yards for TCU, which won’t win the national title - that will go to either Auburn or Oregon. They meet in the BCS championship game in nine days. Luke Shivers’ 1-yard TD run put TCU ahead 21-13 early in the third quarter, but neither team scored again until Wisconsin mounted a 77-drive in the waning minutes. Montee Ball rushed for a 4-yard score with 2 minutes to play, but Carder made a perfectly timed leap at the line to bat down Scott Tolzien’s throw to the end zone. The intended receiver was open in the end zone. Dalton went 15 for 23 and rushed for a first-quarter score, winning the game’s offensive MVP award. But the defense deserved the credit for hanging on when TCU couldn’t score in the game’s final 26 minutes. Carder was the leader all game and the man at the end. – Associated Press

SAN DIEGO - Casey Pachall and the TCU Horned Frogs are headed to the Big 12 Conference on an eightgame winning streak. Pachall highlighted a record-setting game with a 42-yard touchdown pass to Skye Dawson with 4:26 left to lift No. 16 TCU to a 31-24 victory against Louisiana Tech in the Poinsettia Bowl on Wednesday night. It was the eighth straight victory for Mountain West Conference champion TCU (11-2), which moves to the Big 12 next year. It was the third time this season TCU overcame a fourth-quarter deficit to win, including a 36-35 victory at Boise State on Nov. 12, the Broncos’ only loss. Pachall was 15 of 29 for 206 yards. He set school singleseason records with 228 completions, 2,921 yards and a completion percentage of 66.5, breaking marks previously held by Andy Dalton. On the winning play, the sophomore took the snap in the shotgun and Dawson ran past safety Chad Boyd to pull in the long pass. The Horned Frogs, who beat Wisconsin in the Rose Bowl last season, had hoped to make it to a BCS bowl for the third straight season.

TEMPE, Ariz. — Dan Conroy kicked a 47-yard field goal with 1:01 left, Le’Veon Bell ran for 145 yards, and Michigan State rallied to beat TCU 17-16 in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. Michigan State labored through the first half before going on a 90-yard march capped by Connor Cook’s 15yard touchdown pass to Aaron Burbridge in the third quarter. The Spartans recovered a muffed TCU punt at the 4-yard line midway through the fourth quarter, and Bell scored two plays later by racing around left end for a 14-13 lead. TCU rallied to set up Jaden Oberkrom for a 53-yard field goal but left Conroy too much time for his second straight postseason game-winner. Bell, who entered the game as the nation’s third-leading rusher, had nowhere to go early on. Filling holes inside and stringing plays out toward the sidelines, TCU stuffed the back on nearly every touch, holding him to 38 yards on 11carries in the first half. MSU produced only three first downs and 76 total yards in the opening stanza. The Frogs started gashing the Spartans for decent-sized chunks with their option midway through the first quarter, setting up Matthew Tucker’s 4-yard touchdown on an end-around. Oberkrom followed with a 47-yard field goal and added another from 31 yards after Trevone Boykin hit Josh Boyce on a 61-yard pass to put TCU up 13-0 at halftime. Boykin threw for 201 yards for TCU.

ATLANTA — No. 6 TCU rode three touchdown passes from Trevone Boykin and a dominant defense to a 42-3 rout of No. 9 Ole Miss in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl. Josh Doctson had two touchdown catches and Aaron Green ran for a score and added a touchdown reception for the Horned Frogs (12-1). Bo Wallace threw three interceptions, including one caught in the Rebels end zone by defensive end James McFarland for a touchdown. The action was as lopsided as the score. TCU finished with 423 yards and allowed only 129 to Ole Miss. The Rebels were held to 9 yards rushing in the biggest margin of victory in Peach Bowl history. TCU led 28-0 at halftime. Ole Miss ranked first in the nation with its average of only 13.8 points allowed. Turnovers and TCU’s quick-strike offense were too much to overcome. Wallace completed only 10 of 23 passes for 109 yards. The Horned Frogs turned two Ole Miss turnovers into 14 points. On the Rebels’ third snap of the game, a pass from Wallace was picked off by safety Chris Hackett. Two plays later, Kolby Listenbee threw a 31-yard touchdown pass to Aaron Green. Late in the half, Wallace tried to avoid a safety when pressured in his end zone by tossing the ball away, but McFarland snatched the ball up before it hit the turf for an instant touchdown and a 28-0 lead. Wallace was sacked five times - all in the first half. The rout continued in the third quarter as Boykin threw touchdown passes of 35 yards to Listenbee and 27 yards to Doctson. The scoring catch moved Doctson past Reggie Harrell’s team-record total of 1,012 yards receiving in 2003.

BOWL HISTORY 2016 VALERO ALAMO BOWL

#11 TCU 47, #15 Oregon 41 ∙­­­ Jan. 2, 2016 SAN ANTONIO — Bram Kohlhausen’s 8-yard touchdown run in the third overtime carried No. 11 TCU to a wild 47-41 victory over No. 15 Oregon in the Alamo Bowl as the Horned Frogs stormed back from a 31-0 halftime deficit behind a backup quarterback. The 31-point comeback to win tied the record for a bowl game, matching Texas Tech in the 2006 Insight Bowl against Minnesota. Oregon stormed to the big lead early behind quarterback Vernon Adams Jr., but he was knocked out of the game late in the second quarter after taking a hard hit to the head. Oregon gained only 18 yards in regulation in the second half. Kohlhausen started in place of TCU’s Trevone Boykin and passed for 351 yards and two touchdowns and ran for two more scores. After trailing 31-0 at halftime, TCU scored on all of its possessions in the second half and overtime. The Horned Frogs started their march back with 17 points in the third quarter, twice scoring touchdowns on fourth down. Kohlhausen threw a touchdown pass to Jaelen Austin, then ran 2 yards for his first score. Jaden Oberkrom’s 22-yard field goal with 19 seconds left tied it, and TCU scored first in the first overtime when Kohlhausen hit Emanauel Porter for a 7-yard touchdown. Oregon answered with Royce Freeman’s third touchdown run. After the teams exchanged field goals in the second overtime, Kohlhausen sneaked around the right end on an option, and seemingly disappeared behind his blockers until he was in the end zone. TCU’s 2-point conversion pass attempt failed, but Oregon’s final chance to tie and keep the game going ended with an incomplete pass on fourth down near the goal line.
