But, despite it’s mediocrity, compared to say the Big 12 Championship Game season of 2017, it’s not one Patterson will forget, saying to ESPN after the win, “I’ll remember this [season] as much as any of them, just because of everything this group went through. It really says a lot about the program, the foundation of what we’ve done, what we’ve had to go through to get to where we’re at. And to finish against a good Cal team is what we wanted to get accomplished. I’m really proud of my seniors for going out a winner.”

For Patterson, he remains a winner. He has 14 winning seasons in 18 years in Fort Worth. For all the talk that Oklahoma and Texas are the future of the Big 12, let’s not forget about TCU, who was in the title game last year and has built a serious foundation under the best coach in the conference. It was a strange and twisted year, but this program isn’t going anywhere.

LJ went off with an effort that surely got the attention of scouts.

One of those ends was Collier, who registered a first-quarter sack of Cal quarterback Chase Garbers and also tackled running back Christopher Brown Jr. for a 2-yard loss early in the fourth.

The first-team All-Big 12 selection finishes his senior season with career highs in tackles (42), tackles for a loss (11.5) and six sacks, which ranked second on the Horned Frogs.

In a college career that included a redshirt season in 2014, Collier totaled 82 tackles, 14.5 sacks and an interception that sealed last year’s victory over Oklahoma State.
