Now that he’s a full-time quarterback, and with the help of the Air Raid, Boykin is filling the stat sheet. Through half of the regular season, Boykin has thrown for 1,873 yards and 14 touchdowns. He also has just three interceptions, one of which was a freak play by a defensive tackle against Oklahoma State. On top of that, he’s rushed for 346 yards and three touchdowns.

In the span of a few weeks TCU reduced the number of teams it had never defeated as a member of the Big 12 in half.
Last week against Oklahoma State, B.J. Catalon scored on a fourth-and-1 conversion from the 35, Aaron Green scored on a 4-yard run, and Trevorris Johnson ran effectively out of two-tight-end sets.
For proof, look no further than No. 10 TCU (5-1, 2-1 Big 12). The Horned Frogs are the top-ranked team in Texas despite coming off last year’s 4-8 record.
