The two biggest Frogs came up big when the game was on the line.

TCU's stars came through in the clutch. Quarterback Trevone Boykin's 69-yard touchdown run gave TCU its first lead since the second quarter with just over six minutes remaining. Then, after Kansas State rallied to tie the game, Boykin found Josh Doctson for a 55-yard touchdown with 1:10 remaining.

They corrected things before it was too late, but just barely.

TCU's players spent the week laughing in practice, joking in team meetings, and coach Gary Patterson kept warning them about overlooking a trip to Kansas State.

They finally listened to him at halftime Saturday night.

Doctson was also ready for the challenge.

“That’s what happens when our back’s against the wall,” Doctson said. “We’re just ready to execute. He’s going to make big plays. And I’m going to try to make big plays along with him, along with the rest of the offense. Make big-time plays in big-time games. That’s what he did.”

It was good to see them both out on the field, although Kolby had a rather quiet night.

Listenbee had not played since going up for a touchdown catch against SMU and falling on his back side. He did not record a catch against Kansas State.

This is a point that needs to be made through a megaphone.

At some point, however, dramatic victories stop being the sign of good fortune and start being the sign of a team that knows how to win. That’s where the Horned Frogs are now. They’re talented but flawed with an unmistakable killer instinct.

We're starting the destiny talk, I see.

“Every team,” athletic director Chris Del Conte said, “has its destiny.”

TCU's at the moment is to apparently scare the bejeezus out of everyone who is hoping the small private school in Fort Worth can play for a national championship. To get there, apparently the Frogs are going to have more days like Saturday.

Bill Snyder has come out and said the field goal attempt was the wrong thing to do.

''The options were run, throw it or kick the field goal,'' Snyder said. ''Obviously the field goal was the wrong thing to do. That's one of those choices.''

The Frogs are now 14-4 on the season, and 4-2 in Big 12 play.

Freshman Ashleigh Martin had a career-day, as the TCU volleyball team picked up its fourth straight Big 12 Conference victory for the first time in program history with a 3-0 (30-28, 25-23, 25-16) sweep of Texas Tech on Saturday morning in Lubbock, Texas at the United Supermarkets Arena.
