Inside the Numbers: TCU Falls to Optimus Klein

TCU fell to Kansas State 23-10 Saturday night in front of the fourth largest crowd in Amon G. Carter history. The Frogs defense was great, the rest of the team, not so much. It was a disappointing loss but we have to go Inside the Numbers.

TCU had more first downs (15-12), more total yards (274-260), and a better time of possession (30:16-29:44) yet still came up on the losing end. This was the 8th time this season TCU has totaled more yards than its opponent.

Trevone Boykin was 17-30 for 164 yards, 1 touchdown, and 1 interception. Matt Brown was 1-3 for 14 yards.

The defense played a great game. Kansas State’s 260 yards and 12 first downs were the lowest totals by a Big 12 opponent against TCU this season. Stansly Maponga recorded 2 of TCU’s 3 sacks and Devonte Fields had his 1st career interception. Elisha Olabode led the Frogs with 8 tackles, all solo stops. The eight solo tackles were a career high.

Jaden Oberkrom is now 2-6 on field goal attempts since going 6 for 6 against Texas Tech. The upside is Oberkrom made his 37th straight extra-point attempt tying him with Chris Manfredini for 4th place on the Horned Frogs’ consecutive single-season PATs made list.

TCU dropped to 13-9 against ranked teams under head coach Gary Patterson.

This was a tough loss to swallow. Luckily the Frogs have eleven days to prepare for their Thanksgiving matchup with the Longhorns in Austin. Hopefully the outcome of that one will be the complete opposite of this one.
