TCU back to winning ways; thrashes Jayhawks 51-14 at home

After a loss on their home field last week, TCU (3-1, 1-0) responded by crushing Kansas (2-3, 0-2) 51-14 at Amon G. Carter Stadium Saturday in Fort Worth, TX.

The Horned Frogs got off to a fast start using their running attack to get down the field in hurry. Behind Darius Anderson, the Horned Frogs gashed the Jayhawks.  Quarterback Max Duggan would finish the drive with a 26-yard touchdown pass to receiver Dylan Thomas, putting TCU on top first.  Duggan would have another first quarter touchdown to Pro Wells for 7 yards.

As the quarter was already bad enough for Kansas, they punted to receiver Jalen Reagor who put on the jets and cruised past the Jayhawks on a 73-yard punt return, adding to the TCU lead 21-0 as the first quarter ended.

The second quarter wasn’t any better for Kansas as their offense couldn’t muster anything.  On the other end, the TCU offense continued to dominate as they would go on three scoring drive.  The Frogs led into half up 38-0.

While the third quarter was scoreless, the Jayhawks would score twice, ending the Frogs’ shutout.  TCU would score two more times as well, including a quarterback keeper by third-string QB Mike Collins in the waning seconds of the game.  The Frogs would win the game 51-14.

The Horned Frogs were led on offense by Duggan who threw for two touchdowns and passed for 100 yards.  Alex Delton also contributed throwing for 186 yards.  Anderson led in rushing again with 115 yards on 18 carries and a touchdown.   The team overall had four rushing touchdowns.

TCU outgained the Jayhawks 625 yards to 159 yards.  The Frogs defense was dominant holding the Jayhawks to just 8 first downs.

The win helped the Horned Frogs get their first conference win of the season and get back to their winning ways at home.

Next up, the team will pack their bags and travel to face off against Iowa State University.  Kickoff is set for 11 a.m. CST.
