47,894 people packed the Carter which made it the second largest crowd in TCU history. The combined 109 points were the second-most in school history. The city was electric, the atmosphere was great, but the Frogs came up short 56-53 in triple overtime.

TCU had more first downs, more total yards, fewer penalties, and controlled time of possession but still couldn't pull out the victory. Trevone Boykin was 26-44 for 332 yards, 4 touchdowns, and 2 interceptions.

The stars of the game for TCU were Skye Dawson and Jaden Oberkrom. Dawson made 10 receptions for 154 yards and 1 touchdown. He also added 61 punt return yards and 34 kick return yards. Oberkrom was 6 for 6 on field goals and 5 of 5 on extra points. Oberkrom scored 23 points (6 field goals, 5 PAT), setting a TCU record for points scored by kicking in a game.

TCU dropped consecutive contests at Amon G. Carter Stadium for the first time under Gary Patterson as head coach.

It was an amazing game and one of the best I saw all year in college football. The Frogs just couldn't come up with a play when they needed it most. The loss dropped TCU to 5-2 on the season.
