TCU 45, SDSU 33

TCU re-wrote its record book Saturday in San Diego, emerging victorious despite giving up their longest pass-play in history- a Kevin O'Connell completion to Chaz Schilens for 97 yards and a touchdown.

The Frogs' own Joe Turner turned in 226 yards rushing, and four touchdowns-- tying for the third-highest individual touchdown total in TCU's history. (Jeff Ballard last hit that mark, against New Mexico in '05.)
The Horned Frogs' offense snapped 111 plays, a new high for TCU and the MWC, and tying Texas Tech for the NCAA's all-time mark. The Frogs gained 39 first downs-- also a TCU and MWC high. (Texas Tech got 45 first downs in their 111-play game.)

By the final whistle, the Frogs had possessed the ball for just over 40 minutes.

Bowl speculation puts the Frogs in Houston for the Texas Bowl against Houston, who has already accepted a bid to that bowl, or in Albuquerque for the New Mexico Bowl, or in Fort Worth for the Armed Forces Bowl.
