TCU Postgame Notes
* TCU improved to 10-0 for the first time since 1938 and for the third time in its 107-year history. The 1938 team finished with a perfect 11-0 record and won the national championship, while the 1935 team finished 12-1.
* TCU has now won 20 of its last 21 games.
* TCU has won 12 consecutive games, which is one win behind Oklahoma for the longest current streak in the nation. The 12 straight victories are tied for the second-most in TCU history, behind only a 14-game winning skein from 1937-38.
* The Horned Frogs have won 13 straight games at Amon G. Carter Stadium dating back to the 2001 season. The streak started with a 37-22 victory over 17th-ranked Louisville on Nov. 23, 2001. With the win, the team broke the school record for consecutive home wins of 12 set from 1932-34.
* With the victory, TCU has back-to-back 10-win seasons for the first time since 1932-33.
* The TCU Horned Frogs and Oklahoma Sooners remain the only two unbeaten Division I teams.
* The Horned Frogs, who led 20-10 at halftime, have now led or been tied at intermission in 21 of their last 22 contests.
* Today's attendance was 42,161. TCU's final home average through its six-game season was 36,155, the second-highest in school annals.
* Today's crowd was the largest since 44,282 witnessed the TCU-Texas A&M game on Nov. 25, 1995. In addition, the crowd ranks as the 13th largest in TCU history.
* The Horned Frogs have scored 163 points in their last four games (40.8 per game) after scoring 138 in their first six games (23.0 per game).

TCU Special Teams:
* In the third quarter, Bo Schobel sacked Cincinnati's Gino Guidugli in the end zone, forcing a fumble in the process that was recovered by Martin Patterson in the end zone for a touchdown.
* The fumble returned for a touchdown was the second by TCU this year, as Tyrone Sanders also returned a fumble for a score against Army on Oct. 4.
* Elvis Gallegos registered his first career interception in the fourth quarter.
* Chris Peoples had his second interception of the season in the final stanza.
* TCU placekicker Nick Browne
scored 19 points tonight and now is the career kicking points leader at TCU with 278 points, breaking Michael Reeder's mark of 259 (1994-97). Browne now ranks second all-time in career scoring, behind only LaDainian Tomlinson (324).
* Browne's 19 points today are the most-ever by a TCU kicker in a single game. In two career games against Cincinnati, he has 36 points thanks to 5 FG and 2 PATs in the 2002 meeting and 5 FG and 4 PATs this afternoon.
* The five field goals against Cincinnati ties a TCU record and Conference USA record set by Browne last year against the Bearcats. He is a perfect 10-for-10 against UC all-time.
* The blocked field goal by TCU's Tyrone Sanders
was the first by the Horned Frogs since they recorded one on Dec. 20, 2000 against Southern Miss. That block also came courtesy of Sanders.
* The blocked punt by Flander Malone
was the first by a Frog player since Reggie Harrell
vs. Memphis on Nov. 30, 2002.
* Kenny Boyd
returned the Malone block six yards for the touchdown. It was his first career score of any kind.
