12-8-14: The #3 TCU Horned Frogs traveled back home for their final regular season game of the year to play host to the Iowa State Cyclones. This Big 12 matchup took place inside TCU’s Amon G. Carter Stadium with TCU’s playoff hopes hinging on the contest. TCU had won six straight games coming into the contest which improved their record to 10-1 and their Big 12 record to 7-1. Iowa State had lost five games in a row entering the contest which left their record at 2-9 and 0-8 in the conference leaving the Cyclones with nothing to play for this week. TCU needs a victory to clinch their own spot in the first College Football playoff while Iowa State looks to get their first conference victory and look to play spoiler in their final game of the season.
TCU needed to win this game and win this game in a big way to convince the committee that the team deserved to be in the College Football Playoff. TCU did just that as the team ran up the score a bit while putting up 722 yards of total offense over an overmatched Cyclones defense. Iowa State tried to play the spoiler in the contest and win their first Big 12 game of the season but the offense was able to muster just 236 yards of total offense in the contest. TCU’s Trevone Boykin finished the game with 460 yards passing, a receiving touchdown and four touchdowns passing before leaving the game after one drive in the fourth quarter. Boykin handed the ball to Bram Kohlhausen who marched down the field before the TCU head coach decided to kneel down on the ball rather than run up the score further showing class and respect for Iowa State. Sam B. Richardson had trouble moving the ball all day long against the TCU defense on the road and finished with just 152 yards passing with an interception and -14 yards rushing on four attempts. Sam E. Richardson intercepted a Boykin touchdown pass in the end zone to highlight the Cyclones defensive day in a 55-3 loss to the Horned Frogs. TCU forced 10 punts, caught two interceptions and allowed just a field goal in a total victory for the Horned Frogs.
TCU finished their season with an 11-1 record and an 8-1 conference record which makes the team bowl eligible and gave the Horned Frogs a share of the Big 12 Championship. Congratulations to TCU on the championship but this is not likely the last we see from this team as the Horned Frogs are likely to head to the inaugural College Football playoff. Iowa State finished with a 2-10 and a 0-9 Big 12 record which makes the team ineligible for a bowl game while falling out of contention for the Big 12 Conference Championship.
