Welcome to Fort Worth: TCU 42, OSU 9

The Cowboys come to Fort Worth for the first time as a conference foe, and will be leaving with a massive beatdown.

Looking good, B.J.

Coming into this game, OSU had an amazing streak of 56 straight games of scoring at least 20 points.  Today that streak ended in emphatic fashion, as the TCU defense held the Cowboys to three field goals and zero completed passes in the second half.  Not one.  That is absolutely amazing.  Then there was the TCU offense, which rebounded strongly from a bad fourth quarter both in terms of playcalling and execution, racking up 675 yards of offense and 42 points before shutting things down in the fourth quarter.  What was possibly most amazing about this game is that it never really felt like Oklahoma State was even in this one- the Frogs got a pick and then a score on OSU's second possession, then a quick lightning strike from Trevone Boykin to Josh Doctson made it 14-0 and then... the game was pretty much over.  TCU's defense didn't let off, going into a bend-but-don't-break mode that let the Cowboys get a few field goals, but the Frogs continued to explode and put up some impressive drives and there was simply no way that the Cowboys could come back- especially with ZERO completions in the second half.

In the end, this was the most complete performance I've seen from a TCU team in years and the Frogs control their own destiny for at least a share of the Big 12 title.

Go Frogs.
