TCU rolls over Tech 82-27 in the highest scoring game of the season


TCU is bowl eligible (6-1, 3-1 Big 12) after putting up 82 points in another record breaking game against conference rival Texas Tech. The Frogs came off a 42-9 win against Oklahoma State and kept the momentum rolling tonight.

Quarterback Trevone Boykin broke the TCU record for most touchdown passes in a single game. The record came with his sixth TD pass to Ty Slanina for a 57-yard run. Boykin continued to push the record with a seventh pass to Emanuel Porter.

Aaron Green, Josh Doctson, Cliff Murphy, Deante’ Gray, Ty Slanina, Emanuel Porter and Trevorris Johnson all scored touchdowns.

Deante’ Gray ran 92-yards into the end zone for the longest play of the game.

Chris Hackett and Sam Carter had the game’s two interceptions.

With 433 yards, Boykin passed for over 400 yards in his second consecutive game. Last week was his first 400-yard game.

The 82 points scored set a new school scoring record. The previous record was set in 2011 in a 69-0 victory over New Mexico.

TCU also broke the record of total yards in a game, amassing 785 yards. The prior mark was 782 yards set in 2003 against Houston.

Josh Doctson left the game on crutches with an ankle injury in the third quarter. Patterson said Doctson’s condition is unknown but he is expected to play next week, regardless of his attendance at practice in the upcoming week.

Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes entered the game in the middle of the third quarter after Davis Webb was injured on the field and left on crutches.

Chris Hackett and Tech’s D.J. Polite-Bray were ejected for throwing punches with eight seconds left in the third quarter.

“I’ve been telling him not to get involved for three weeks,” Patterson said regarding Hackett’s ejection.

Matt Joeckel entered the game at the start of the fourth quarter, but was relieved by Zach Allen after one drive due to injury.

Joeckel’s “situation doesn’t look good,” said Patterson.

Boykin credits Joeckel with teaching him to successfully play the air raid offense.

TCU’s fourth quarterback entered in the last two minutes. Bram Kohlhausen, a junior transfer, saw the field for the first time this season. Trevorris Johnson ran 25-yards to give TCU its final touchdown of the game and put the Frogs up 82-27.

Despite his team’s success, Patterson said Boykin was one of several players “not acting the way he needed to” before the game.

“Leaders have a certain way they need to do things. You can’t forget where you came from,” Patterson said. “You can’t forget last year.”

Patterson credits turnovers for his team’s scoring success today.

The Horned Frogs travel to West Virginia Saturday to take on the Mountaineers at Milan Puskar Stadium.

“We’re going to have to be able to score points, because they know how to score points,” Patterson said. He also said TCU’s defense must make improvements to be able to keep up next week.
