It was nice to watch the majority of a TCU game no in "I am going to have a heart attack" mode.
For however long, TCU finally got a chance to get off the roller coaster that has been their road games this season. 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.
As Doctson lay on the field you could almost feel TCU fans everywhere crying. Thankfully, he wasn't too banged up.
He finished the game with 10 catches for 190 yards and two touchdowns in a 45-21 Big 12 victory.
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."
Boykin had another Heisman-level evening.
Boykin finished with 510 yards of offense and five total touchdowns in leading TCU to a school-record 15th straight win dating to 2014.
Boykin sits at No. 2 behind Leonard Fournette.
Iowa State isn’t a great challenge but Boykin keeps producing eye-popping stat lines. This time it was 27 of 32 for 436 yards and four TDs to go with 13 carries for 74 yards and one more TD.
Pretty funny moment from the game last night.
TCU quarterbackplays 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.
Boykin's completion percentage was off the charts last night.
Boykin picked Iowa State apart with a 27-for-32 effort that yielded 426 yards and four touchdowns to zero interceptions. He added 74 yards on 13 carries with one score. Boykin's completion percentage of 84.4 set a new season high for one game. His previous game high was 70 percent against SMU (21 for 30). TCU posted a turnover margin of +1 against Iowa State.
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.''
This kid could be a real stud for the baseball team.
Baker brought visibility and attention to Oak Ridge High School during a sensational four-year varsity career with the War Eagles, punctuated by an amazing 2015 season that brought him the Gatorade National Player of the Year Award.
To Iowa State, no less. The team made their way to Jack Trice Stadium though, to cheer on their football counterparts.
The TCU volleyball team's winning streak came to a halt on Saturday afternoon, as the Horned Frogs fell to Iowa State 3-1 (25-16, 25-22, 17-25, 25-22) at the Hilton Coliseum in Ames, Iowa.
