You remember: The Flea Kicker, the Stanford Band, the Kick Six and (just last week) the Tip Six.
TCU vs Texas Tech 2015 featured number three TCU coming off of a 4-0 start against 3-1 unranked Texas Tech. Covered tightly, Doctson could only tip the pass, but tailback Aaron Green ran under it and tapped his foot down for the touchdown.
Doctson also was the intended receiver on fourth and goal late in the game.
Green rushed for one touchdown, and the Horned Frogs got a safety in the first quarter after the snap went over Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes.
That Nebraska-Missouri game, of course, was played later in the season.
About the only pass Doctson didn’t catch was that final miracle-touchdown pass eventually hauled in by Green.
Nebraska won in overtime that night. Nebraska.
Texas Tech almost pulled off an miraculous final play with:00 on the clock when their quarterback escaped some a serious pass rush and dodged a few sack opportunities before finding an open receiver with plenty of space to run. Red Raiders take control.
It was a classic for more than those who love the color purple and 7-on-7. TCU gets down to the 4 yard line and Tech calls a timeout with 1:05 left. Doctson caught three touchdown passes and finished with 267 yards on 18 catches – all career highs.
Trevone Boykin finished 34-of-54 for 485 yards and four touchdowns. After having a breakout game against SMU a week ago, the defensive end became a near liability Saturday afternoon. He’s so good because he’s a do-stuff-right guy all the time. Destiny? Fate? If I win 17-10 I have no offense. Injuries will force the Orange to play walk-on quarterback Zack Mahoney, a junior college transfer who was fifth on the depth chart in preseason. And what better place than West Texas if you’re looking to get weird. The Frogs may be dropping like flies, but as long as #2 is on the field, they will have a chance in every came on their schedule.
“Pat is a soldier,” Washington, the Big 12’s leading rusher, said, per Carlton. Patterson has one that is now … laughable. – Freshman Clayton Thorson threw three touchdown passes, Justin Jackson ran for a career-high 184 yards as Northwestern (4-0) overcame a sluggish first half.
Green also accounted for 162 rushing yards on 28 carries and two scores via the ground.
Have a stiff one, Gary. Arkansas, meanwhile, finishes college football’s most disappointing September, dropping its third straight game and its 15th loss in 17 SEC games under Bret Bielema’s tenure. The win was the 119th at Iowa for coach Kirk Ferentz, matching former Badgers coach Barry Alvarez for victories by a Big Ten coach. As much as he wants to defend his spread offense – talking to you, Bret Bielema – Kingsbury’s have been lacking. That leaves only one returning starter in the lineup from the Peach Bowl last year when TCU pummeled Ole Miss on New Year’s Eve.
Overall road teams went 5-0 in Pac-12 games.
Four Big 12 teams rank among the nine most-penalized teams from Power 5 conferences this season: Baylor, Oklahoma, TCU and Texas. How rare was that?
