TCU coach Gary Patterson spent most of Saturday watching every bounce, blooper and bizarre play go against his team on a frigid afternoon at Kansas.
Kansas led by as many as 10 at two different points in the game before TCU rallied in the second half and pulled out the victory. But the game was full of mistakes and turnovers, including a key fumble midway through the fourth quarter that put Kansas on the TCU 10-yard line down a touchdown. The TCU defense held and forced a field goal that resulted in the final score.
En route to the worst loss of the Gary Patterson era, TCU awoke in time to defeat Kansas, but the damage was already done long before the game ended.
One of the wackiest games of the season threatened to throw a gigantic wrench into the CFB Playoff situation, but in the end No. 4 TCU prevailed over a hungry Kansas squad, 34-30.
It didn’t look good, but TCU survived an upset scare against lowly Kansas with a 34-30 win over the Jayhawks. Here are a few thoughts from the win.
