TCU wins wild game on tipped pass that goes for touchdown

A video review confirmed Green had control of the ball and got a foot in bounds.


I thought Tech would have one of their dominant wins, but too many missed opportunities to put TCU away and poor clock management late allowed to TCU to escape Lubbock with a win.

Boykin completed 34 of his 54 passes for 485 yards. He already has 475 rushing yards this season (118.8 per game), almost halfway to another 1,000-yard season after a year ago being the first Red Raiders running back with one since Ricky Williams (not the Heisman Trophy victor from Texas) in 1998.

TCU senior WR Josh Doctson improved his stock versus Texas Tech, showing “strong hands to make a play on any ball thrown in his zip code”, CBS Sports’ Dane Brugler notes.

Mahomes was 25 of 45 for 392 yards.

Texas (1-3, next game Saturday @ TCU) – The Longhorns started as 18-point underdogs Saturday at Fort Worth.

Over the next five weeks, the Mountaineers face the guts of this conference, one after another: Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Baylor, TCU, Texas Tech.

Amusing how things work out- Chiefs quarterback Alex Smith was the first pick of the 2005 draft, Green Bay’s Aaron Rodgers was the 24th.

But that doesn’t mean we can’t also talk just a bit more about the game.

Harbaugh said Darboh got the game ball after the win.

At least TCU’s unit had an excuse.

Texas Tech’s Mahomes has 21 carries for 129 yards and four touchdowns, while Boykin has 32 carries for 148 yards with two touchdowns.

A battle between a Bob Stoops team (one that is, thanks to the addition of offensive coordinator Lincoln Riley, more tied to the air raid offense than those in recent years) and a Holgorsen team was guaranteed to be entertaining. Over 1,000 yards of passing? But there are cracks in this TCU defense and evidence of such was presented the last two weeks.

It was Oregon’s worst loss at home since falling 54-0 to Washington in 1977. – Patrick Towles threw two touchdown passes and ran for another score to lead Kentucky (3-1), which snapped an 18-game losing streak against ranked teams. The Baylor Bears ground game is averaging 379.6 yards per contest, and Shock Linwood leads the way with 363 yards and four touchdowns.

These are the top five big-play receivers, each with a higher yards-per-catch average than Doctson this season, that will join him in stretching National Football League defenses over the next couple of years. Brandon Harris hit Malachi Dupre with an 11-yard scoring pass with 9:14 left to seal it. Art Briles will run it up the middle, he’ll use play-action zone read, he’ll throw it deep, and he’ll run a wide receiver screen.

Diggs, who is now with the Detroit Lions, had similar bravado entering last year’s matchup. Davis did not finish the game due to a knee injury; his status for this week is uncertain.

Ohio State has won 17 straight dating back to last season. The Cowboys jumped out to a pretty quick lead in the first quarter and then just peed the bed in the second quarter. K-State could be an underdog in its next six games.


“We have got all the teams that the media is favoring up next”, K-State quarterback Joe Hubener said.
