The Horned Frogs (7-4, 4-4 in Big 12) scored on their first possession of the game and maintained control for their first victory over the Longhorns since 1992 and first win in Austin since 1967.

Matthew Tucker got the scoring started for TCU with a pair of short rushing touchdowns and Arlington Martin grad Jaden Oberkrom sealed the victory with two field goals, including one for 41 yards early in the fourth quarter.

The Longhorns (8-3, 5-3) did not make it into the end zone until the final minutes of the fourth quarter, when Jeremy Hill’s 8-yard rushing touchdown capped an 82-yard drive. Nick Jordan, a freshman out of Coppell, scored Texas’ only other points on a pair of 25-yard field goals.

The TCU defense kept Texas in check with three interceptions, two off of David Ash, who started for the Longhorns, and one off of Case McCoy on Texas’ final possession to close out the win. Stansly Maponga also forced and recovered an Ash fumble on a second-quarter sack.

Quarterback Trevone Boykin led the Frogs’ rushing attack with 85 yards, adding 83 yards on 7-of-9 passing with one interception. Freshman B.J. Catalon contributed 58 yards, and Tucker finished with 57 yards and both TCU touchdowns.
