PSR Logo
TCU’s Jaden Oberkrom kicked a 37-yard field goal as time expired to give the No. 10 Horned Frogs a 31-30 victory over No. 20 West Virginia (6-3,4-2) in front of a sold out crowd on Saturday.

The game marks the third close game between the two teams since joining the Big 12 three seasons ago. Each of the last two meetings went to overtime with both teams splitting the series, but on Saturday it was theMountaineers on the opposite end of the heartbreaking loss.

TCU (7-1, 4-1) rallied from a 13-point deficit to keep theirplayoff hopes alive.

The Horned Frogs were held to a season-low 389 yards against the Mountaineers, one week after putting up 82-points on Texas Tech. Quarterback Trevone Boykin went 12 of 30 for 166 yards and a touchdown.

The Mountaineers led most of the game, but a sloppy offensiveshowing cost them the win. West Virginia committed five turnovers, all in their own territory, and the offense struggled to move the ball in the final quarter.

B.J. Catalon scored two second-half touchdowns for the HornedFrogs. His 6-yarder with 7:33 remaining cut the WVU lead to 30-28.

West Virginia’s offense was unable to answer on the next two drives with questionable calls by head coach Dana Holgorsen.

The Horned Frogs started on its 24 and Boykin threw a 40-yard pass to Kolby Listenbee to the West Virginia 33. Three running plays moved theball to the 24, setting up for Oberkrom’s game winning field goal.

Clint Trickett finished 15 of 26 for a season-low 162 yards. He threw two interceptions.

West Virginia’s star receiver Kevin White had only three catches for 28 yards. The Mountaineers will hope to rebound next week when they travelto Texas to take on the struggling Longhorns(3-5, 1-4).
