TCU vs. SFA: Inside the Numbers

The Frogs beat SFA pretty handily on Saturday afternoon, so let's take a look at how it happened.

After a week 1 game that was a lot closer than a lot would've liked, this one was....not so much. Doug and Sonny were sure to spread the ball this game, whether it be in the back field or through the air, a lot of people got to make an impact.  Let's take a look at the stats.

Individual Stats:

  • Trevone Boykin accumulated a total of 291 yards, with 285 through the air and 6 yards on the ground.  It was good to see Deuce focus more on his passing and not worry about scrambling out of the pocket, but also props to the O-line for showing up. This is Trevone's second game in a row this season throwing an interception.
  • Boykin has only been held under 10 yards rushing 5 times in his career, with the most recent coming against Kansas last season. However, he only ran with the ball 3 times this week, and I didn't see any designed runs for Boykin in the play calling this week.
  • Aaron Green rushed for 20 yards and 2 touchdowns on 5 attempts. Yes I understand that Patterson wanted to get the team more reps, but man I wish they handed it off to Aaron a little more this week. His 20 yards was his fewest since last year's home opener against Samford, where he rushed for 18 yards as a back up to Catalon.
  • Kolby Listenbee lead the team in both receptions and receiving yards. He amassed 142 yards on 6 receptions, and scored a touchdown on a 60 yard bomb, where he just torched past his defender.
  • Kavontae Turpin showed that he could do almost anything on the football field, rushing for 17 yards on 1 carry and catching the ball 3 times for 16 yards.
  • Denzel Johnson showed up big with a pick 6 against the lumberjacks, his first of his career.
  • Kyle Hicks rushed for his first career touchdown on a 1 yard rush in the 3rd quarter.
  • Both Giants Jujan Story and Emmanuel Porter both caught touchdowns over defenders.
Team Stats
  • TCU rushed for 224 yards, and are now 73-4 under Patterson when rushing for over 200 yards.
  • TCU has continued their win streak at home, the Frogs have won 8 straight games at the Carter.
  • TCU's offense out gained SFA's 627 yards to 167 yards, respectfully.
  • The Frogs were penalized 3 times for 43 yards on Saturday. This was a big improvement since last week where the team was penalized 9 times.
  • 4 quarterbacks took at least 1 snap this game. Boykin, Kohlhausen, Sawyer, and Muehlstein.
  • 11 total players caught the ball, including true freshman Jaelan Austin twice for 29 yards and a touchdown.
  • 11 total players also recorded at least 1 rush attempt.
  • 0, there were 0 field goals kicked during this game. TCU scored 10 touchdowns and did not settle for 3 once. This is good because our redzone efficiency needed some improvement from last season.
  • The Frogs extended the streak of  games where they caused at least 1 turnover to 27 games. The nation's longest.
  • Patterson now moves to 134-45 as a head coach.
  • Patterson has not lost a home opener since 2001 against Northwestern State.
