TCU 67, SFA 7

On Saturday the Frogs did what a 1-A team is supposed to do when it plays a 2-A team: beat them with its first team, and its second team, and its third team, and its walk-ons. The Stephen F. Austin Lumberjacks, the 2-A team, gave TCU an exhibition game before Stanford comes calling this weekend.

Notable: TeeJay Johnson returned in the secondary; Coach Patterson says the safeties communicate "15 times better" when Johnson plays. One of those safeties, Stephen Coleman, had another interception. Senior Jason Phillips sat out this contest-- his first missed start at TCU. Marcus Jackson took more snaps than starter Andy Dalton, who we presume began watching film on Stanford at halftime. Jimmy Young had seven receptions for over 100 yards, five for third down conversions. Shea Reagan-- to whom the Frogs never threw a pass at New Mexico-- caught three. Joe Turner did the heavy lifting for the first team.
