The win and impending bowl berth is great, but this is absolutely the best story to come out of Saturday night.
Favors led the postgame chant – 1-2-3 Family, 3-2-1 Championships – in the victorious locker room afterward.
Favors called the summer visit “one of the best days I’ve ever had” and surely felt the same way about seeing TCU clinch a bowl berth in the regular-season finale.
It was a happy, although, tired, GP postgame.
Two weeks after the most lopsided loss in coach Gary Patterson’s 18 seasons as head coach, Reagor scored touchdowns running and receiving for the second game in a row and Grant Muehlstein threw two TD passes as the injury-plagued Horned Frogs got bowl eligible with a 31-24 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday night.
”With everything that happened to us, I think we ended up overachieving at the end. Simple,” Patterson said. “I don’t think you can take away from our kids what they just got accomplished.”
The Frogs should bounce back tonight and get a dub.
The Eastern Michigan Eagles have been downright terrible offensively in their two road games and are now going up against one of the better defenses in the country. The TCU Horned Frogs are coming off an ugly loss, but this is an experienced team that should be able to bounce back. TCU hasn’t been great against the number, which is the one pause I have with laying double-digit chalk, but Eastern Michigan hasn’t played well at all for the most part of the season. So, TCU and the chalk has to be the play in this spot.
Now to see if they get a postseason call.
“She’s [MacLean] just done anything she needed to do to help this team all year long regardless of what position we put her in,” Kramer said.
Libero Berklie Baker added 18 digs to lead the Horned Frogs on defense and middle blocker Katie Clark had 15 kills while hitting .300.
TCU finished the season with a 15-12 record while going 7-9 in Big 12 play.
“If you watched this team last year and you watched this team this year you know how much better we truly are,” Kramer said. “We’ve made a lot of changes, lot of growth, lot of development.”
