Amon G. Carter Stadium
Attendance: 47,851

Team Notes
* Over the last three seasons, TCU is now 26-5 overall and 16-4 in conference play. Both marks are tied with Baylor for the best in the Big 12.

* Kenny Hill’s 18-yard scoring pass to Jaelan Austin was the Horned Frogs’ first touchdown on their opening play of the game since Aaron Green had an 86-yard run at Kansas State last season.

* A first-quarter sack by Denzel Johnson, which forced a fumble, extended TCU’s school record streak to 35 games with at least one sack. It is the second-longest active streak in the nation, behind only Ohio State with 39.

* TCU extended its nation’s-best streak to 35 consecutive games scoring at least 20 points.

* TCU lost at home for just the 16th time in 16 seasons with Gary Patterson as head coach. The Horned Frogs are now 76-16 at Amon G. Carter Stadium under Patterson.

* TCU scored for the 298th consecutive game. It's the nation's second-longest current streak and fourth all-time in NCAA history. The Horned Frogs haven't been blanked since Nov. 16, 1991 at Texas (32-0).

* The attendance of 47,851 was the eighth-largest in TCU history.

* TCU's team captains were Josh Carraway, John Diarse, Kyle Hicks and Travin Howard. It was Diarse’s first game as a captain.

* TCU wore its new liquid steel black helmet with a black jersey and black pants.

Individual Notes
* Kenny Hill had a career-high five touchdown passes, tying him with six other players for second in a single game in TCU history.

* Hill’s 449 yards passing were the eighth-most in a game in TCU history, one spot behind his 452 against SMU last week. In his opening five games, Hill has three of the top nine single-game passing totals at TCU. He has topped 400 yards three times.

* Taj Williams recorded a career-high 210 yards receiving, on five receptions with two touchdowns, were the fourth most in a game in TCU history. It was the highest total since Josh Doctson’s school-record 267 yards against Texas Tech last season.

* Williams recorded his first 200-yard effort and his second 100-yard receiving game of the season and his career. Williams' two touchdowns, covering 64 and 74 yards, both came in the fourth quarter.

* Kyle Hicks recorded a 61-yard touchdown reception, which was the longest pass play of his career and his second touchdown of at least 60 yards this season. He had a 64-yard scoring run against Iowa State.

*Hicks had a team-best six receptions for 81 yards while adding a team-high 61 yards rushing on 15 carries, including a 2-yard scoring run.

* Jaelan Austin had a career-high five receptions for 64 yards, including an 18-yard touchdown, to surpass his previous best mark of four catches in the 2016 Valero Alamo Bowl win over Oregon.

* Austin’s 18-yard touchdown reception was his third scoring grab of the season and fifth of his career. He made his first collegiate start.

* Cole Hunt’s first TCU touchdown came on a 3-yard reception from Hill in the first quarter. Hunt is the younger brother of former TCU All-Big 12 center Joey Hunt, now with the Seattle Seahawks. It was the second career score for graduate transfer Cole Hunt. He had a touchdown reception for Rice last season.

* TCU’s first touchdown was set up by Denzel Johnson’s first forced fumble of his career with Travin Howard recording his first fumble recovery.

* Niko Small totaled a career-high 11 tackles.

* Nick Orr tied a career-best with 10 stops.

* Ty Summers led TCU with 13 tackles, giving him double-digit stops in four straight games.

* Brandon Hatfield’s 23-yard field goal made him 4-of-4 on the season.

* Left guard and redshirt freshman Cordel Iwuagwu made his first career start.
