In the end it was the defense that came up big when it mattered most
In the end, the well-soaked semblance of the TCU defense, coach Gary Patterson’s traditional pride and joy, halted the Baylor Bears’ offense in overtime and secured the Horned Frogs’ 28-21 victory.
Come watch what Patterson had to say after the Frogs knocked off the Bears.
The Frogs ensured Baylor would not be three-time Big 12 Champs with a 28-21 win in double overtime.
Even though both teams have had star-crossed seasons, Baylor would have been very much alive for a Big 12 title had it won Friday, needing only Oklahoma State to beat Oklahoma on Saturday to be named outright champions.
The catch was also Stewart's first career touchdown.
TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin’s first completion of the game was a 25-yard touchdown strike to freshman Jarrison Stewart, and it was a notable completion in a season full of notable moments for the fifth-year senior.
It was Boykin’s 813th completion, moving him past Andy Dalton and into first place in school history.
Boykin gutted this game out on a bad ankle.
returned for TCU, though he was far from his best. Boykin missed TCU's game against Oklahoma last weekend with an ankle injury, but was able to start, albeit with his ankle heavily taped. He was clearly not his normal, explosive self, but it's hard to think either or would've been much better.
Boykin delivered in the clutch.
Trevone Boykin threw an 8-yard touchdown pass to KaVontae Turpin in the second overtime and TCU (No. 19 CFP, No. 15 AP) beat No. 7 Baylor 28-21 on a rainy Friday night, knocking the Bears out of contention for their third straight Big 12 title.
True freshman Julius Lewis and redshirt freshman Ty Summers made the biggest stop of the night.
She bogged down the Bears long enough before TCU cornerback Julius Lewis delivered the knockout blow by stopping the Bears' Devin Chafin for no gain on a fourth-and-1 play at the Horned Frogs' 16-yard line. TCU's fans, who had been drenched, spilled out of the stands at Amon G. Carter Stadium and celebrated the victory as Baylor trudged off the field -- defeated by the Horned Frogs and Mother Nature.
Hopefully he wouldn't leave to wallow away at North Texas.
According to FootballScoop, UNT athletic director Rick Villarreal is expected to interview Meacham on Sunday and hopes to announce a hire early next week.
Seth Littrell, North Carolina's assistant head coach for offense, is the other name mentioned in FootballScoop's report.
Deuce did it one last time at the Carter.
Boykin, playing with a heavily taped right ankle after missing a game, threw for 148 yards and two touchdowns, and ran for a 1-yard score in the first overtime. Josh Carraway returned a fumble 56 yards for a touchdown for the Horned Frogs (10-2, 7-2 Big 12).
