TCU 82 TEXAS TECH 27 – TECH BLITZED BY A NEW ERA OF FROG FOOTBALL
Once upon a time, seeing outrageous numbers on the scoreboard was not uncommon when Texas Tech was playing. It just was uncommon to see it happening to them – and definitely not by TCU.
Saturday’s game at Amon Carter Stadium was just the latest case of how things have changed in Fort Worth since Gary Patterson brought in Sonny Cumbie and Dough Meacham to revamp the offense, as the Horned Frogs ran their way all over the Red Raiders to an 82-27 destruction.
Trevone Boykin threw for 433 yards while Aaron Green ran for 105. Five TCU receivers caught a touchdown, with Deante Gray and Josh Doctson catching two each.
Tech did score first, led 10-7 and only trailed 24-17 after the first quarter. The score was 31-20 with 8 1/2 minutes to go in the second – and then the Frogs got serious, scoring 30 unanswered points, followed by an additional 21 after a Tech touchdown made the score 61-27 with just over three minutes to go in the third.
The lone black mark of the game for TCU was receiver Doctson having to leave the game and being seen in crutches later.

SMU 10 MEMPHIS 48
The one thing SMU could take from this game was scoring the first touchdown at Ford Stadium this season.
Otherwise, it was another sad day where the defense was shredded for nearly 600 total yards and the Mustangs found themselves trailing 21-0 before Prescott Line found the end zone to cap a 75-yard drive and 41-7 before Cody Rademacher’s 40-yard field goal gave the Mustangs their only other score of the day.
Paxton Cooper threw for 307 yards for Memphis, but the Tigers were equally devastating on the ground, as Jarvis Cooper was just seven yards shy of giving them two 100-yard rushers for the game (Brandon Hayes had 101)

STARS 2 @ NEW JERSEY @ (2-0 SO)
The Stars lost a third period lead, but Jason Spezza and Jamie Benn’s goals in the shootout allowed Dallas to get out of the Garden State with two points.

STARS 6 VANCOUVER 3
A 5-0 lead proved to be one the Stars could hold on to, as Erik Cole scored twice and Tyler Seguin added his fifth of the season.

STARS 5 PHILADELPHIA 6 (OT)
The Flyers kept peppering the net and erased a 4-2 and 5-4 deficit in the third period before Claude Giroux’s power play goal in the extra period ended it.

TCU 42 OKLAHOMA STATE 9
TCU’s stellar defense, keeping the Cowboys out of the end zone for the whole game, was greatly overlooked on a day where the Frogs had a 400-yard passer, 200-yard receiver and 100-yard rusher all in the same game.

SMU 3 CINCINNATI 41
Down 6-0 after the first possession, the Mustangs went 64 yards in 7:20 for a field goal – and then nothing went right after that. SMU turned it over four times while allowing more than 500 total yards splint nearly evenly between the pass and run.
