The defensive performance helped make up for two turnovers by the TCU offense, including one on a bad snap on first-and-goal at the 3-yard line in the third quarter with a chance to add to a 14-7 lead.
Kenny Hill completed 21 of 31 passes for 166 yards. He was not sacked, was intercepted once and converted three first downs by running. The Frogs were 10-for-14 on third down.
