Aaron Green hauled in an incredible tip into the back of the end zone to help the TCU Horned Frogs survive against Texas Tech. “So I just did what I was told and I followed the ball”. I knew he might not have caught it because it was a little high and the guy was behind him. Josh Doctson catches nearly everything, but there’s a chance. Doctson united a Big 12 mark with 18 receive (for 267 lawns and 3 touchdowns).
The Horned Frogs’ Boykin, on the other hand, is nearing a thousand yards as he has 65 completions for 985 yards and 10 touchdowns.

The over is 4-0 in TCU’s last four games following an ATS loss and 8-3 in its last 11 conference games. The kick is blocked by Pete Robertson and Texas Tech takes over on their own 37 yard line.

Heavy rain impacted the game midway through the first quarter, but the weather eventually moved out of the area by the second quarter. The best teams overcome them and find a way to win.

Chubb had scoring runs of 9 and 49 yards in the third quarter.
Thomas Sirk was 17 of 25 for 114 yards with an 11-yard touchdown pass to T.J. Rahming.
