Boykin Tabbed Davey O'Brien Award Finalist

Nov. 24, 2015

FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU's Trevone Boykin has been announced as a finalist for the Davey O'Brien Award.

Presented annually to the nation's top quarterback, the Davey O'Brien Award is named after the TCU legend who won the 1938 Heisman Trophy en route to leading the Horned Frogs to their second national championship in four seasons.

Boykin was one of three finalists for last year's Davey O'Brien Award. This year’s other finalists are Oklahoma’s Baker Mayfield and Clemson’s Deshaun Watson.

As a finalist, Boykin will be in attendance at the Dec. 10 Home Depot College Football Awards Show, televised live by ESPN, in Atlanta.

Boykin leads the nation in total offense at 402.3 yards per game. He has completed 65.8 percent of his passes for 3,427 yards with 29 touchdowns. He is also TCU's second-leading rusher with 596 yards on a 5.5 per carry mark with eight scores.

Boykin has 16 touchdown passes, no interceptions and seven rushing touchdowns in the red zone this season. He has been involved in four games when the score was in single digits in the fourth quarter. He is 18-of-25 (72.0 percent) for 259 yards with four touchdowns and no interceptions. He led the Horned Frogs to game-winning drives on their final possession in road wins at Texas Tech and Kansas State.

Since 2009, only four times has a quarterback averaged over 300 yards passing and 50 yards rushing. Boykin has done it twice (2014, 2015). The others were Heisman Trophy winners Robert Griffin III and Johnny Manziel.

Boykin's streak of seven consecutive games with at least 300 yards passing and 40 yards rushing earlier this season was the longest in the nation over the last 20 years.

Since 1996, Boykin leads all players nationally with six career games of 400 yards passing and 40 yards rushing. No one else has more than four. Boykin accomplished the feat four times in the last eight games.

A senior from Dallas, Boykin is one of just eight quarterbacks in FBS history with at least 10,000 yards passing and 1,500 yards rushing. He has broken Andy Dalton's TCU career records for touchdown passes (84), passing yards (10,580), total offense (12,613) and touchdowns responsible for (111). He is tied with Dalton for completions (812).

Boykin will graduate from TCU next month.
