*In three home games this season, Dalton is now 50-of-61 (82.0 percent) for 719 yards with six touchdowns and no interceptions.
*Dalton's 270 yards passing were a season-high, surpassing the 267 he had against Baylor in TCU's last home game. He added 42 yards rushing on four carries to give him a season-high 312 yards of total offense.

*Dalton's 50-yard first-quarter touchdown pass to Jeremy Kerley was TCU's second-longest play from scrimmage this season. It was Kerley's fourth touchdown catch of the year and the sixth of his career.
*With 115 yards rushing on 17 carries, Ed Wesley had his third 100-yard game of the season and fourth of his career. His 17-yard second-quarter touchdown run was his team-high seventh rushing score on the year.
*Matthew Tucker tied for team-high honors with three receptions for 53 yards. He entered the game with four career catches.
*With a five-yard touchdown run in the third quarter, Tucker surpassed 1,000 yards rushing for his career. He now has 1,032.
*Bart Johnson's 31-yard second-quarter touchdown reception was his second scoring catch of the season and the seventh of his career. It also extended his team-best and career-high streak to 28 consecutive games with at least one reception.
*Antoine Hicks' 2-yard first-quarter scoring run came on his first carry of the season. Hicks has five career rushing touchdowns on 23 carries. He later added a 4-yard touchdown reception, the seventh of his career.
