Boykin and Doctson Add to National Honors

Sept. 29, 2015

FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin and wide receiver Josh Doctson totaled three national awards on Tuesday in recognition of their performances in the 55-52 win at Texas Tech.

Boykin was selected by the Football Writers Association of America as the AutoNation National Offensive Player of the Week. He was also tabbed as the Davey O’Brien Award National Quarterback of the Week. Doctson received the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award National Player of the Week. On Sunday, he was named the Walter Camp National Offensive Player of the Week.

Boykin set career highs for completions (34), attempts (54) and yards passing (485). The 485 yards rank second for a game in TCU history, trailing only the 690 by Matt Vogler against Houston in 1990. Boykin topped the 400-yard mark for the second straight game and extended his TCU record to five career efforts with that total. His first-quarter 9-yard scoring toss to Doctson extended his nation's-best streak to 19 consecutive games with a touchdown pass. Boykin's four touchdown passes gave him 69 for his career, two shy of Andy Dalton's TCU record (71, 2007-10). Boykin, who leads all active players nationally in total offense, went over the 10,000 mark for his career. He's now at 10,250 yards, just 64 shy of Dalton’s TCU mark of 10,314.

A senior from Dallas, Boykin also had a reception for 2 points against Texas Tech. Doctson had 18 receptions for 267 yards and three touchdowns. The 18 catches were the most in a game by an FBS player this season while tying TCU and Big 12 single-game records. The senior from Mansfield, Texas, is one of just four players since the start of the 2013 season to have 18 receptions in a game.

The 267 yards receiving broke the TCU single-game mark of 226, set by Jimmy Young against Wyoming in 2008.

Doctson's three touchdown catches gave him 21 in his career, ranking second on the Horned Frogs’ all-time list behind Josh Boyce (22, 2010-12).

Doctson became the first Horned Frog with at least 10 receptions in a game since Boykin had 11 catches against West Virginia in 2013.
