Trevone Boykin connected with KaVontae Turpin on an 8-yard touchdown pass on third-and-goal in double overtime to give the No. 19 Horned Frogs their first and only lead of the game, 28-21 in double overtime. The Horned Frogs’ defense held on fourth-and-one on Baylor’s ensuing drive to end the game.
Boykin finished with two touchdown throws and another touchdown run in the first overtime period to answer Baylor’s score that put the Bears up 21-14 to start overtime. He passed Andy Dalton’s TCU record for career completions on his first completion of the game, a 25-yard touchdown throw to freshman Jarrison Stewart.
Players of the game: Ty Summers had 22 tackles for TCU, the most ever by an individual in the Gary Patterson era, including on the game’s final play when he combined with cornerback Julian Lewis to stop Baylor running back Devin Chafin short of the line to gain on a fourth-and-1 play. Defensive tackle Davion Pierson recorded two sacks and recovered a fumble early in the fourth quarter. Chafin scored all three Baylor touchdowns, two first-quarter rushing scores bookended with a 4-yard touchdown catch on Baylor’s first overtime possession on a jump pass from Baylor quarterback Chris Johnson. Chafin ran for 115 yards.
Key stat: TCU and Baylor, two of the nation’s top offenses, were held scoreless for the second half as rain fell harder and harder throughout regulation’s final three quarters. The final 32 possessions of regulation netted both teams 0 combined points.
Records: TCU 10-2, 7-2 Big 12; Baylor 9-2, 6-2
