With lightning in the area, the game didn’t start until 2 P.M. after a three hour weather delay. There was more lightning in the fourth quarter, delaying the game yet again.
When the game wasn’t being halted by lightning, TCU looked like the dominant team. They limited Kansas State to only 216 total yards and just two field goals the entire game.
It was the passing game that carried the Frogs to another win. The ground game has carried TCU most of the year to this point, but TCU only rushed for 98 yards yesterday.
Kenny Hill looks like he keeps getting better. He threw for 297 yards on 27-for-37 passing with no interceptions, something he struggled with last season. He looks like a new man. Hill also ran for 13 yards on six carries, including a seven yard scramble for the Frogs first touchdown of the game.
Kavontae Turpin led the receiving core with 70 yards receiving on just five receptions. Kyle Hicks caught five passes for 50 yards. Jalen Reagor, Desmon White, and John Diarse all had more than 40 yards receiving on four or less receptions.
The defense held Kansas State to 146 passing yards and just 70 rushing yards, while recovering one Wildcat fumble. This defensive unit continues to be one of the best in the nation.
TCU entered the week ranked number 6 in the AP poll and has moved up to number 4 in the latest AP poll.
The Frogs face the Kansas Jayhawks next Saturday in Fort Worth at 7 P.M. On Fox.
