By the Numbers - KU

New, 14 comments

An ugly game, but record breaking, so worth taking one last look at. Who has written their name in the record books after a win at KU?

Ed Zurga

OFFENSE:

3,586 - The new single season total offense mark, set by Trevone Boykin in the first quarter. Boykin passed Andy Dalton (2010, 3,292) for most yards in a season, and has two games (plus a bowl or two) to further add to his record. Boykin set the mark on a 27 yard touchdown pass to Ty Slanina, the first score of the game.

3,021 - The new single season passing yardage record, set by Boykin, eclipsing Casey Pachall's mark of 2,921 set from 2011.

6 - 300 yard passing games for Trevone Boykin this season, a new TCU record, topping both Dalton and Pachall's marks of five games a piece.

1 - Starts for Ja'Juan Story in his collegiate career. Story got his first start of the season in Lawrence, and while he had only one reception for one yard, he had a couple of huge blocks downfield that helped spring his teammates for scores and big gains.

3 - 100 yard rushing games for Aaron Green in the last four contests for TCU. Green has cemented himself as a key contributor to the Frog O even when B.J. Catalon returns from injury. Green had 128 yards on 19 carries and two scores in the win, giving him six touchdowns on the year, and nine for his career.

DEFENSE:

4 - Consecutive games with an interception for safety Chris Hackett, who leads the Big 12 with six on the year, which is also good for fourth best in the country.

12 - Consecutive games where the Frogs have posted both a sack and an interception. Hackett pulled down the end zone pick late in the game against K State, and had another fourth quarter pick Saturday, to keep the streak alive. Sacks were posted by Paul Dawson and Terrell Lathan.

5 - Three and outs forced by the TCU D verses Kansas; the Frogs average 7.2 forced three and outs per game, which is the highest such mark in the country this season.

SPECIAL TEAMS:

2 - Consecutive extra points blocked by the Frogs. Bryson Henderson blocked K State's XP on their final score last week, and Ranthony Texada erased Kansas' attempt on their first score Saturday.

69 - Yards on Cameron Echols Luper's fourth quarter punt return score, the first for the Frogs since Deante' Gray had one against Grambling State to open the 2012 season, for 70 yards. The touchdown return gave TCU their second lead of the game and the first since their opening drive, and would prove to be the game winning points.

3 - Kick/punt returns for Chris Hackett (one for six) and Buck Jones (two for 23) against Kansas. Neither player had a return attempt prior to the game.

2 - Made field goals for Jaden Oberkrom, who has made 11 of his last 12 attempts and is 18-22 on the season.
