I'm glad they're calling this game a rout. It was a shaky performance by TCU, imo.
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin turned Thursday night's game with West Virginia into his own personal highlight reel, and the Horned Frogs rolled 40-10 at Amon G. Carter Stadium to remain undefeated.
Trevone Boykin is turning heads, and it's about time.
He juked. He whirled. He ran and passed for 472 yards. He high-fived the opposing coach.
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin may not have won the Heisman Trophy on Thursday night, but he clearly captured the West Virginia caucus.
Dropped passes are one thing, but the defense holding West Virginia to their lowest yardage output of the season is about more than a few dropped passes.
The Frogs ran up 616 yards of total offense and utterly embarrassed what had entered as a top-25 WVU defense by S&P+. Trevone Boykin ran (and flipped) wild, and he threw for 388 yards and three scores against a thinned but still talented secondary. TCU didn't turn the ball over and out-gained West Virginia by almost 300 yards.
Boykin was elusive all night long. There's a big test up next, too.
This was an excellent showcase for Boykin, but his Heisman Trophy chances will be decided in November when the schedule gets considerably tougher for the Horned Frogs. Next week, TCU visits Stillwater, where Oklahoma State—which ranks first in the nation in sacks per game (four)—will test Boykin’s escapability.
Boykin impressed the national media, and he impressed Dana Holgorsen.
Holgorsen opened his postgame comments Thursday night saying, "With all due respect to Corey Coleman, Trevone Boykin is the best player in college football."
Boykin broke Andy Dalton's record for total yards in a career, but affirmed Dalton's legacy after the game.
“Records are meant to be broken, so I hope the next guy comes in and does the same thing to my record,” Boykin said. “You really just want to build a legacy that people will remember, and trust me, Andy Dalton will always be remembered here.”
The little girl has captured the heart of Frog fans everywhere.
“She’s a strong little girl and she’s blessed with the type of family she has,” Boykin said. “She’s powerful in her own way. She’s always smiling, and it was just a blessing to have her here.

"Fortunately for us, we wanted to get a win, and now you have four days until you have a hard practice day next Tuesday. The rest is just as important as the preparation. That was a physical game tonight."
With a special guest and the nation watching, the TCU quarterback delivered highlights of all kinds — even a high-five for West Virginia coach Dana Holgorsen — during a 40-10 victory against West Virginia on Thursday night at Amon G. Carter Stadium, keeping his team unbeaten into a November of showdowns.
Everyone's noticing him now.
Trevone Boykin added another one of his patented highlight-reel front flips into the end zone Thursday night as part of another brilliant performance to lead No. 5 TCU to a 40-10 win over West Virginia. Once again Boykin stuffed his Heisman portfolio with seemingly endless clips of awesomeness.
