Inside the Numbers: TCU vs. Iowa State

David Purdy

The Frogs got a win! Let's over-analyze it!

0:38 - The amount of time left on the gameclock when Trevone Boykin plunged into the endzone to give TCU the lead. It was Boykin's third rushing touchdown on the day, giving him six on the season.

6 - Receptions by Brandon Carter, the Frogs' much maligned wide receiver. His 93 yards on the day was by far his best performance of the season, but a late bobble-turned-interception almost cost the Frogs the game.

2 - Interceptions thrown by Casey Pachall, one of which was a bad throw, one for which the blame rests squarely on Brandon Carter's shoulders. Pachall completed 20 of 36 pass attempts on the day, but generally did not have the accuracy we are used to seeing out of him.

4,900 - Pachall's passing yards for his career at TCU. 100 more yards and he'll be the fourth TCU quarterback to throw for 5,000 yards in a career since 1970. He's already fourth highest on the list, sandwiched between Steve Stamp (5,123) and Casey Printers (4,621). He won't go any higher than third though, as he needs 2,470 yards to catch Max Knake at number 2 (7,370).

38 - Rushing attempts by the Horned Frogs on the day, resulting in 123 yards and three touchdowns. It ties for the third most rushing attempts in a game this season. When the Frogs run the ball at least 36 times (6 games this season), they're 4-2. Generally though, they're running the ball more against weaker opponents. The two losses came against Texas Tech (44 rush attempts) and Oklahoma State (36 rush attempts).

17 - Rushing attempts for Aaron Green, his most as a Horned Frog and the most attempts in a single game for a TCU running back this season. (Boykin had 20 attempts against Texas Tech. That was also TCU's sole 100-yard rushing day for any TCU player this year).

0 - Field goals attempted by Jaden Oberkrom for the first time this season, and only the third time in his career.

3 - Rushes until Trevone Boykin notches 100 carries on the season. When he does, he'll have 100 carries and 100+ completed passes on the year, something he also managed in 2012.

4 - Wins on the season. If the Frogs lose out, this will be the fewest wins in a season during the Gary Patterson era, and the worst since the Frogs went 1-10 in 1997 in Pat Sullivan's last year.
