TCU vs. Texas - Post-Game Notes




Sept. 8, 2007

Recap |  Final Stats

  • TCU saw its nine-game winning streak, which had been fourth-longest in the nation, end.

  • The Horned Frogs' five-game winning streak against Big 12 opponents, since the start of the 2005 season, came to an end. It had been the second-longest current streak of victories over Big 12 opponents, trailing only Oklahoma (eight). TCU is now 9-2 in its last 11 games against teams from BCS-automatic qualifying conferences.

  • TCU saw its 19-game winning streak in Saturday games snapped. The Frogs lost on a Saturday for the first time since Sept. 10, 2005 at SMU.

  • Texas running back Jamaal Charles became the first opponent to rush for more than 100 yards against the Frog defense in 20 games, dating back to DonTrell Moore's (New Mexico) 129 yards on Oct. 1, 2005.

  • TCU held an opponent scoreless in the first half for the fourth consecutive game. Colorado State (Nov. 25, 2006) was the last team to score on TCU in the first half. CSU is the only team to score a touchdown on the Frogs during the opening half in the last 11 games.

  • In holding Texas scoreless, TCU has allowed just one first-quarter touchdown in its last 20 games.

  • Torrey Stewart's 45-yard interception return for a touchdown marked his second career score off a pick. He returned an interception 20 yards for a touchdown against Air Force last season. Stewart now has an interception in four of the Frogs' last five games.

  • David Roach snagged his third career interception late in the first half and returned it 19 yards to help set up Chris Manfredini's 19-yard field goal. The pick, which was tipped by David Hawthorne, marked Roach's first interception since 2005, when he had two such takeaways. He added seven tackles.

  • Marcus Brock's 49-yard kickoff return on the opening kickoff was the longest of his career, topping his previous best of 35 yards in 2004.
     

     

  • Shae Reagan's 14-yard first-quarter reception kept his streak alive in which all 16 of his career catches have resulted in first downs.

  • Derek Wash had a career-long 63-yard punt in the third quarter. It was the second straight game that Wash had a career-long punt. He had a 57-yard effort last week against Baylor.

  • Andy Dalton set career highs with 208 yards passing, 37 passing attempts and 23 completions. Dalton has eclipsed 200 yards in both starts to open his career.

  • Brian Bonner set a career high with 11 tackles. His previous high of eight was recorded in 2005 at BYU.

  • TCU led 10-0 at the half before Texas had a touchdown drive on its opening possession of the third quarter. It was the same scenario in 2005 when the Frogs posted a 17-10 win at Oklahoma. TCU led the Sooners 10-0 at the intermission before Oklahoma had a touchdown on its opening possession of the third quarter.

  • The attendance of 84,621 was the third-largest crowd to ever see a TCU football game. The top two attendances were 87,439 and 86,412 for 1973 and 1969 contests, respectively, at Ohio State.
