The Horned Frogs shut out Iowa State for the final 45 minutes and coasted to a 45-21 victory at Jack Trice Stadium, extending their unbeaten season to 7-0 and winning a school-record 15th consecutive game.

Team's first quarter defense may be "worst" in college football, Turpin expected back | Dallas Morning News

Patterson spoke after the game about TCU's defense, and the team's general play on the road.

"We have to quit playing tentative when we go on the road. It's really three ball games we've played like this. Once we get them settled down and we get into rhythm, it's been OK. You've got to give Iowa State credit; they came after us. Three road games and Texas; we're beat up pretty good. We're going to need these 12 days to get ourselves back and get ourselves ready to go. It's good to be going into a break and being undefeated."

TCU's defense delivered a hit so hard, Trevone Boykin made an emoji face | SB Nation

Pretty funny moment from the game last night.

TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin plays against the TCU defense in practice all the time, so he probably knows how hard the Horned Frogs can hit.

That doesn't mean he can't be surprised by a hit.

Iowa State head coach Paul Rhoads knows how special Boykin is.

''He's a special athlete, so you've got to defend him all the time - run, pass, whatever he does,'' said Iowa State coach Paul Rhoads. ''If your kids aren't in position and there to finish, they're going to complete those.''
