The catch that everyone will be talking about came on a play that didn’t go as planned for TCU.
Aaron Green made it sound so simple. And he just catches it, makes an unbelievable play.
Luckily for TCU, it doesn’t have to worry about that thanks to a miraculous tipped touchdown pass from quarterback Trevone Boykin to Aaron Green, which gave it a 55-52 win Saturday. On a day when the scoreboard and the lead had been ping-ponging from one side to the other, the best way to feel safe – with more than three or four minutes left – was to get a touchdown and a two-score lead.
There are games every year that define what a team is going to be.
East Carolina 35, Virginia Tech 28 – Quarterback James Summers rushed for 169 yards and two scores to help the Pirates (2-2) earn their first home win against the Hokies (2-2) in 23 years.
They’ll celebrate a weird bit of good fortune this week at Texas Christian, and understandably so. TCU is fifth, piling up nearly 600 yards per game themselves through three weeks.
Kingsbury, who said his quarterback will never throw a block like that again, prefers to focus on Mahomes’ overall influence as the leader of the squad.
Baylor’s Seth Russell matched a school record with six touchdown passes as the Bears routed Rice 70-17.
TCU receiver Josh Doctson had an incredible Saturday in Lubbock.
Instead Boykin fired the ball in the direction of Josh Doctson, who leaped into the air, only to watch helplessly as the pigskin floated toward the ground after bouncing off his left hand.
Mahomes connected on 25 of 45 passes for 392 yards and two touchdowns.
“I had two drops”. The Wolverines won’t have it easy against No. 22 BYU, winners of its first two games with last-ditch touchdown heaves by Tanner Mangum and a one-point loss at UCLA.
Victor Williams had career highs of 11 catches and 178 yards receiving, helping Dartmouth win its home opener.
A TCU field goal attempt was blocked early in the 2nd quarter.
Fournette gained 48 yards to set up his first-quarter score, White found a seam up the middle and raced untouched into the end zone to give LSU a 17-3 lead in the third, and Fournette tacked on a 62-yard scoring run later in the period for a 24-10 lead. TCU starts on their own 40 and in two plays gets down inside the 25. “I wasn’t happy with Carraway. We have to regroup and get ready for Baylor next week”. Who will win this game?
All in all, Pierson was on the field for 25 snaps.
Tcu Horned Frogs scored 46.8 points compared to allowed 20.3 points with point differential of 26.5. He scored on a 24-yard pass from Greyson Lambert in the first quarter.
You have to see it to understand just how close this was to NOT being a touchdown. Patterson has one that is now … laughable. Senior Corry O’Meally was charged with most of his work in the secondary. “There were some, “USA” chants in the locker room”, Harbaugh said.
“Defensively, I think he is one of the top minds in all of football”, Kingsbury told Bruce Feldman of Fox Sports.
