By the Numbers - KSU Edition

New, 26 comments

Let's take a look back at some of the numbers that made the victory over Kansas State happen. They fall heavy on the defense and other side, as the game was controlled by a great crowd and a dominating defensive effort.

Cooper Neill

OFFENSE

1 - Career starts for freshman Emanuel Porter, who filled in for the injured Deante' Gray and had one catch for six yards.

3 - Rushing touchdowns for Trevone Boykin, tying a career high. Boykin was responsible for four scores on the day, had 123 yards rushing, and accounted for 342 total yards. The 123 yards and 17 carries were a career high.

334 - Rushing yards for TCU Saturday night, the most since 2011. In addition to Boykin's 123, Aaron Green had a career high of 171, including a career high 65 yard touchdown run.

1 - Potential Heisman moments for Trevone Boykin, who's flip into the end zone after a long run for a TD will certainly make his Heisman highlight reel, should he continue his stellar play.

DEFENSE

3 - Wildcat first downs in the first half. The TCU D was dominant, save one long touchdown, and stuffed several shorts runs on third down. Outside of the 70 yard touchdown to Tyler Lockett, TCU held K State to 2.8 yards per play and 10 yards on nine carries through the first 30 minutes.

3/5 - Chris Hackett has five interceptions on the season, and one in three straight games. His end zone pick Saturday was Jake Water's first turnover in conference play this season.

4/5 - James McFarland had his fourth sack of the season and Mike Tuaua had his team leading fifth. TCU has recorded a sack and an interception in 11 straight games, the best streak in the country.

34 - The total yards Kansas State had on the ground, after having averaged close to 200 on the season up to that point. TCU stuffed the run again and again, forcing the Cats to be one dimensional and allowing the D Line and linebackers to play much more aggressively.

SPECIAL TEAMS

26 - Jaden Oberkrom hit on a pair of 26 yard field goals. The Lou Groza Award finalist has made 10 of his last 11 attempts.

OTHER

48,012 - Total attendance at Amon G Carter stadium for the blackout game, the third largest home crowd in TCU history.

5,278 - Attendance in the student section, breaking the single game record and representing well over half of the student body.

4 - Ranked teams TCU has beaten this season, a school record.

9 - Big 12 teams the Frogs have beaten in their first three years... otherwise known as all of them.
