Frogs Break Away in Fourth
Oct. 13, 2012
WACO, Texas (AP) - Trevone Boykin threw for 261 yards and four touchdowns, all those scores coming on third-down plays, and TCU won 49-21 at Baylor on Saturday night to end the Bears' nine-game home winning streak.
Boykin, the redshirt freshman who completed 22 of 30 passes without a turnover, added 56 yards rushing with a late 3-yard touchdown for the Horned Frogs (5-1, 2-1 Big 12) in his second start.
The Horned Frogs took advantage of six turnovers by Baylor (3-2, 0-2).
Baylor scored on the second play of the game, but TCU led for good after Boykin had touchdown passes of 18 and 15 yards to Cam White.
It was the first league game between the two teams since 1995, the last year of the Southwest Conference.
Baylor threw a 74 touchdown pass on the second play of the game, but the next two possessions ended with interceptions.
The first was a nifty pick by Jason Verrett. He made a two-handed grab, snagging the ball only inches off the ground. TCU then went 55 yards in eight plays, including Boykin's scrambling 25-yard run on third-and-15, for a 7-7 tie.
TCU was good on 14 of 19 third-down conversions, and even was good on a fourth-and-4 on the go-ahead drive in the second quarter. B.J. Catalon ran 17 times for 79 yards against Baylor. The Horned Frogs had the ball for nearly 42 minutes, and had scoring drives of 15 and 16 plays.
Right after Joyce Boyce's 2-yard touchdown run for TCU late in the third quarter, Baylor got within 28-21 on the next play when Nick Florence hit Terrance Williams in stride for a 77-yard score late in the third quarter. T
But the Horned Frogs scored three touchdowns in the fourth quarter. That included a 15-yard catch by Josh Boyce, who earlier ran 2 yards for a score.
