Eight TCU Players Make ESPN's Big 12 All-bowl team

A lot of Frogs were critical to the comeback.

Bram Kohlhausen and seven other Horned Frogs were named to ESPN's Big 12 All-bowl team on Tuesday. It's not an official awards list, but it's still fun to talk about in light of TCU's incredible 47-41 comeback victory in the Valero Alamo Bowl.

Kohlhausen, of course, was the driving force behind TCU's 31-point comeback in the second half of the bowl game. He finished with 351 passing yards and two touchdowns, most of which came in the second half and the three overtimes. He also ran for 45 yards and two touchdowns. Two of his four touchdowns came on fourth down plays.

Aaron Green, Austin Schlottman, Josh Carraway, Davion Pierson, Ty Summers, Denzel Johnson, and Jaden Oberkrom also made the list.

Green totaled 157 total yards and a touchdown in his final game in purple, playing in his hometown. The former Nebraska transfer commented after the game that he'd be telling the story of this game to his grandkids 50 years from now (which elicited a comment from Patterson about his love life, hilariously enough).

Carraway and Pierson consistently got pressure on Oregon's quarterbacks, finishing with 9 combined tackles, and 1.5 combined tackles for loss. Carraway also came away with a sack.

Ty Summers finished second on the team in tackles, with 11, including two tackles for loss and a critical sack. His sack, if you'll remember, came on the second to last play of the game, after Jeff Lockie bobbled the snap on 3rd and 2. The play resulted in a 4th and 9 situation for Oregon, which they failed to convert.

Denzel Johnson also flew around the football field, recording eight tackles and two pass break-ups.

Oberkrom did what he always does, drilling all four field goals he attempted, including a 46-yarder that sent the game to a third overtime.

Two interesting omissions from the list are Travin Howard and Derrick Kindred, but I suppose the entire list can't be composed of TCU players.
