Props to J-Doc.
The Walter Camp Football Foundation has announced TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson as its National Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in Saturday's 55-52 win at Texas Tech.
Doctson getting some love this week, and rightfully so.
Big (offensive) man on campus: Quarterback Trevone Boykin and running back Aaron Green came through in the clutch for TCU, but wide receiver Josh Doctson was unbelievable all day. He tied a Big 12 record with 18 receptions and finished with 267 receiving yards and three touchdowns. If he doesn't get a hand on the ball on a high throw at the end, Green doesn't have an opportunity to haul in the game-winning grab off the deflection. The Big 12 is stocked with big-time wide receivers this season, but Doctson showed why he takes a back seat to no one.
Interesting take from the WaPo.
They’ll celebrate a bizarre bit of good fortune this week at Texas Christian, and understandably so. The Horned Frogs, hardly the beneficiary of great luck over the last month or so, escaped Texas Tech with a 55-52 victory secured only when running back Aaron Green caught a tipped pass in the back of the end zone with 23 seconds remaining.
Quick blurbs about a few teams that stayed alive in Week 4.
Running back Aaron Green caught a fourth-down pass that bounced off the fingertips of TCU receiver Josh Doctson in the back of the end zone with 23 seconds remaining to give the Horned Frogs a storybook victory.
There wasn't much moving in the Big 12 after Week 4.
The TCU Horned Frogs fell to No. 3 in the latest coaches poll and No. 4 in the Associated Press poll after a close win over Texas Tech.
Baylor, Oklahoma and Texas A&M made no movement in either poll.
Oklahoma State moved up after defeating Texas.
The Frogs are getting a ton of love for coming away from Lubbock with a win.
By early December, when the College Football Playoff selection committee convenes to choose its four semifinalists, TCU's win at Texas Tech might stand as one of the most impressive road wins of the regular season.
Nothing reflects Gary Patterson's change in football philosophy than this quote.
"Well, why not? About time," Patterson said. "Been here 18 years, how about outscoring people for 12 ballgames? Everybody else has been doing it. I've been having to do it with defense and winning 17-10. How about we go nine and 10 ballgames and outscore people?"
The Frogs are now 8-4 on the season, and 2-0 in Big 12 play.
Early pressure from the Horned Frogs paid dividends as they were awarded a penalty kick just under two minutes into the game. Prokof took the PK and buried it for a 1-0 lead.
