TCU 41 KANSAS STATE 20
Saturday night’s win over No. 7 Kansas State did more than mean No. 6 TCU has now beaten every Big 12 school at least once since joining the league.
The victory over the Wildcats at Amon Carter Stadium may have launched the Frogs into possibly one of the four playoff positions at college football’s highest level.
TCU can give a big thank you to former Big 12 member Texas A&M, who beat No. 3 Auburn and left the Frogs in good position to move up. A win by Utah over Oregon (the Utes led 7-0 at the end of TCU’s game) would put them in even better position.
For much of the game, it looked like it would be a battle, as Kansas State kept staying in range every time TCU struck. Trevone Boykin went 19 yards for a touchdown and a 24-7 lead early in the third period, only for Jake Waters and the Wildcats to go 67 yards with Waters finding Curry Sexton to cut the lead to 10.
But less than a minute later, Aaron Green went 65 yards for the end zone for a 31-14 lead. It eventually became 41-14, with Kansas State not scoring again until there was only a minute and a half in the game.
