The Horned Frogs played host to Texas a week after their disappointing loss to Iowa State. They were looking for a good win to bounce back from that loss. The Frogs got just that with a 24-7 win over the Longhorns.
Texas came into the game at 4-4. All of their losses were down to the wire games. They could never seem to finish a game when it mattered.
TCU entered the week 7-1 and ranked number eight in the first College Football Playoff Poll of the season.
The Horned Frogs started the game strong by scoring on their first drive. The rest of the first quarter didn’t have much to talk about.
TCU started the second quarter off with a field goal and another touchdown. Texas then scored their only touchdown of the game on a 33-yard pass.
Neither team would score again until the fourth quarter when Darius Anderson ran for a 31-yard touchdown on fourth down, breaking a defender’s ankles along the way.
TCU didn’t have much of a passing game today as each of TCU’s scores was on the ground. Kenny Hill threw for 146 yards on 18/26 passing with no touchdowns and no interceptions. He added 43 rushing yards as well.
Darius Anderson led the charge for rushing with 99 yards and one score. Kyle Hicks rushed for 41 yards with two rushing touchdowns.
The defense played extremely well yet again, allowing Texas to rush for only nine yards. Neither team turned the ball over at all.
TCU looks to continue winning as they travel to Norman to play the red hot Oklahoma Sooners, fresh off a big Bedlam win, next week at 7 P.M. on Fox.
