They’ve lost to TCU in consecutive seasons for the first time in nearly 60.
Ironically, Texas coach Charlie Strong said he held a team meeting after the Longhorns returned from Fort Worth on Saturday.
Yes, Green caught it, and he might very well have saved a season for TCU that was, at least for second, straight down the tubes prior to the month of October. We’re not asking you to jump over a building, just go out there and make routine plays and routine reads. The worst was in 1904, by 68 to the University of Chicago.
“The Chippewas, under first-year coach John Bonamego who is is being treated for cancer, beat Northern Illinois 29-19 and won their Mid-American Conference opener for the first time since 2010”, Uthman wrote. “I’m not that old”. Boykin shouldered the strain just last week as TCU…
“Our players should never be on their phone”, Strong said. “They should never be on their phone”. They’ve now done it two years in a row. Late in the second quarter, Doctson got his 23rd to set a TCU mark on a 29-yard double pass from Nixon down the right sideline.
Plenty of prospects were also on hand to watch Texas Tech and Baylor at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
Charlie Strong said Saturday was his worst day as a head coach.
Turpin showed his signature straight-line speed on two of the scores. Trevone Boykin completed 34 of 54 passes for 485 yards and four touchdowns, and added 42 yards on the ground. Defensively, TCU yields 235.0 yards in passing and 170.8 yards in rushing.
“Deshawn Salter, Yale, ran for a career-high 233 yards and two TDs in a 27-12 win over Lehigh”.
Texas next faces rival Oklahoma in the Red River Showdown in Dallas. TCU was ranked 4th coming into the game, but since this was about as competitive as a no-pads walkthrough, it’s tough to give the Horned Frogs a whole lot of credit for this victory.
Either way, Texas is playing better than its overall record would indicate.
