TCU 17, Iowa State 14: Last-minute field goal sinks Cyclones | The Gazette

So nice to see Song nail that kick.

TCU’s Jonathan Song kicked a 28-yard field goal with 37 seconds left, enabling the Horned Frogs to escape with a 17-14 victory over Iowa State Saturday night.

ISU may also have lost running back David Montgomery to an injury.

Defense and turnovers ruled the Big 12 game.

The game was tied in the final minute largely because TCU scored on a sack and fumble recovery less than a minute into the second half.

For that matter, the Cyclones wouldn’t have been in the game at all if not for their three takeaways. One set up a 22-yard touchdown drive and two others stopped TCU drives in the red zone.

TCU happy with win over Iowa State. But what’s the latest on Shawn Robinson? | The Star-Telegram

Michael Collins might need to be ready for Texas Tech.

Patterson has been a proponent of using multiple quarterbacks all season. Robinson would get the majority of the snaps, but Patterson has repeatedly discussed getting backup Michael Collins involved earlier in the game. That would limit the number of times Robinson exposes himself to an injury and keep both quarterbacks ready for game action.

Robinson, though, has taken all but a handful of meaningful snaps the past three weeks.

“I’ll be honest with you – I’m not going to be very happy after he was hurt because I had talked about rotating and doing things,” Patterson said. “So if [Robinson] is done then I’m not going to be very happy. I’ll just be honest with you cause I had conversations.”

Jason Phillips: I went from QB that couldn’t throw to LB that couldn’t throw at TCU | The Star-Telegram

Jason Phillips set the standard for TCU ‘backers.

What does this honor mean to you? “It’s humbling to see guys in there who have come before me and to be a part of that. I don’t want to say I don’t deserve it, but I can tell you this much – there’s a lot of great athletes and great people in there. It’s just a very humbling experience to come back to.”

What do you think when you see the program today? “When we beat OU that year in 2005, everybody thought it was a fluke. Now it’s just normal wear and tear of the year. We go play those games every week now. It’s not so much they’re there [raising hand] and we’re here [lowering hand]. It’s now we’re here, they’re here, let’s go at it. I was glad to be a part of us getting to that point.”


Such a sad turn of events.

Former Seattle Seahawks backup quarterback and TCU star Trevone Boykin was indicted Friday on a charge of aggravated assault causing serious bodily harm, the Fort Worth Star-Telegram reported.

The second-degree felony is punishable by two to 20 years in prison.

Boykin was arrested in Mansfield, Texas, on March 21 after Shabrika Bailey was beaten and told police the culprit was her boyfriend, Boykin.
