TCU took a margin on Thanksgiving night dynamic to send a summary to a rest of college football.

The sixth-ranked Horned Frogs delivered one with a 48-10 frisk over Texas, and a tens of thousands of their fans who stranded around to a finish will be happy to keep chanting “T-C-U!” to anyone who might have missed it.

Are we listening, College Football Playoff committee?

Trevone Boykin upheld for dual touchdowns and ran for another, and TCU’s invulnerability dominated a Longhorns and quarterback Tyrone Swoopes, promulgation Texas to one of a misfortune home waste in module history.

The win kept a Horned Frogs (10-1, 7-1) in a hunt for their initial Big 12 title. The doubt is either it was considerable adequate to impact a playoff standings, where they lay during No. 5, one mark out of row for a inhabitant championship.

“You wish character points? The character points tonight were defense, turnovers, doing a things we indispensable to do,” TCU manager Gary Patterson said.

The Horned Frogs forced 6 turnovers, 5 by Swoopes, and scored on an early fail lapse and a late interception. TCU hold Texas (6-6, 5-4) to 290 sum yards and finished a Longhorns compensate for each mistake. Five of Texas’ turnovers set adult 24 points for a Horned Frogs.

TCU plays Iowa State, a last-place group in a Big 12, to finish a unchanging deteriorate on Dec. 6. The playoff pairings will be announced a subsequent day.

“You know, this group deserves to go home and win a championship,” Patterson said. “We’ve got one some-more to do it, and I’m unequivocally unapproachable of them. I’m finally going to go maybe grin once, though we’ve got to get prepared to play Iowa State.”

Always an outsider, a pierce to a Big 12 was ostensible to finish a inhabitant discuss over either a Horned Frogs deserved a place among college football’s chosen if they were in position to win a league. The awaiting of winning a Big 12 pretension and still removing left out of a playoff would be a sour tablet for a Horned Frogs.

Their vital problem? A 61-58 detriment during Baylor in that they consumed a large fourth-quarter lead.

And a Horned Frogs left copiousness of room for doubt when they struggled to kick a struggling Kansas group dual weeks ago. They came to Austin confronting copiousness of inhabitant doubt and a surging Texas patrol that had won 3 true behind one of a Big 12’s best defenses.

“If we didn’t know anything about us, you’d have suspicion we were a 5-7 team,” Boykin said. “They were articulate about us like we hadn’t finished anything. It kind of ticked us off.”

The detriment leaves Texas wanting to win whichever play it plays in to equivocate a losing deteriorate in manager Charlie Strong’s initial year.

“Too many turnovers,” Strong said. “You’d consider a approach we’ve played a final 3 weeks, we’d go out and play improved tonight. You can’t demeanour during 6-6 and contend you’ve unequivocally finished improvement.”

TCU sacked Swoopes 4 times. The initial by Josh Carraway forced a fail that Terrell Lathan scooped for a 40-yard touchdown lapse for a 13-0 lead

Texas quickly incited a movement until Boykin connected on dual large passes late in a second quarter. The initial was a 38-yard chuck on third down to Josh Doctson, who used his 6-foot-4 support to out-jump Texas’ 5-9 Quandre Diggs during a Texas 6.

Three plays later, Boykin zipped a pass to David Porter, who was trailing opposite a behind of a finish section for a 20-3 lead.

Texas, that didn’t measure a third-quarter touchdown in 10 games this season, never threatened to make a diversion of it in a second half.

After Swoopes threw his third interception, Boykin connected with Doctson for another jump-ball pass over Diggs for a touchdown early in a fourth.

Carraway finally sealed it out with a 33-yard interception lapse with 2:19 left.

“I’d be fibbing if we were to tell we we weren’t wakeful of character points and all that,” Doctson said.
