TCU Football won their opening game Saturday night, holding a Golden Lions squad at bay in a 39-7 victory. Defense and special teams carried the day as the Horned Frogs offense stalled often, especially in the red zone. That’s where they leaned on redshirt senior Jonathan Song. The Frogs’ kicker went 5-5 on field goals (24, 36, 19, 34 and 38 yards), a mark that tied for the second-most in a game in program history, trailing only the TCU and Big 12 record of six by Jaden Oberkrom in 2012 versus Texas Tech. A graduate student from Fort Worth, Song is now 22-of-25 in his career, including 21-of-22 inside 40 yards.
Wallow had a huge night as well, recording a team-best - and career-high - 13 tackles, including 3.5 for a loss, and one sack. It was the fourth career double-digit game in stops for the junior from New Orleans.
Oklahoma QB Jalen Hurts was the conference’s Offensive Player of the Week for his performance against Houston.
