It’s a tough task when you’re up against the No. 2 TCU Horned Frogs. In the team’s latest display of power, the Horned Frogs tore apart the Texas Longhorns with a score of 50-7 on October 3 to improve their record to 5-0 overall and 2-0 in the Big 12. Can TCU eviscerate another Big 12 team in the shape of the Kansas State Wildcats? The Wildcats took a pristine 3-0 record to Stillwater last Saturday, but left with the team’s first loss of the season in care of No. 20 Oklahoma State.
Fresh off beating the Texas Longhorns like Charlie Strong and his boys owe TCU money, the Horned Frogs try to keep the streak going when they play Kansas State a trip this coming Saturday.
When they played Texas, TCU brought hell to a helpless Longhorns side that let Trevone Boykin and company unload 604 total yards. As usual, Boykin was in the middle of TCU’s attack, whilst the quarterback passed for 332 yards and five touchdowns without interceptions thrown. Aaron Green and Trevorris Johnson, meanwhile, took care of things on the ground while the backfield tandem combined for 165 of the team’s 228 rushing yards.
Kansas State does possess an infinitely more decent defense than Texas, but few teams in the nation could stop TCU on the attack once everything begins to click for the Horned Frogs.
TCU is fourth in the FBS in passing yards (396.4 per game), 17th in rushing yards (233.6), and third in scoring (50.0).
Regardless of having a powerful dual-threat quarterback in Boykin, TCU also offers electrifying wideouts in Josh Doctson (722 yards, eight touchdowns) and a fast-rising KaVontae Turpin (245 receiving yards, six touchdowns).
Defensively, TCU appears to truly have the pieces to keep Kansas State’s offense in check. In the end, the Horned Frogs showed they are able to do more than score once they held Texas scoreless for three quarters, only allowing the Longhorns to breathe once everything was said and done.
