Horned Frogs knock off Cowboys

QB Duggan leads TCU in win over No. 19 Oklahoma State

- By Stephen Hawkins

FORT WORTH, Texas — TCU quarterbac­k Max Duggan threw a go-ahead,

71-yard touchdown pass midway through the fourth quarter and ran for two more scores as the Horned Frogs held off No. 19 Oklahoma State 29-22 on Saturday.

Duggan threw for 265 yards and ran for

104 to lead the Horned Frogs (5-4, 5-4 Big

12).

Derius Davis caught the long TD pass in stride near the 25 with 7:56 left to give the Horned Frogs the lead. They stayed in front when TrevonMoeh­rig made a one-handed intercepti­on of a deflected pass in the end zone, and TCU had a fourth-down stop with 2:18 left after its own turnover.

Oklahoma State (6-3, 5-3), with amakeup game remaining atBaylor, wasn’t necessaril­y eliminated from making the Big 12 championsh­ip game in two weeks, but would need a lot of help to get there.

The Cowboys were trying to respond with a tying touchdown when Spencer Sanders’ high pass deflected off the hands of 6-foot-7 Jelani Woods, and was grabbed byMoehrig in the back of the end zone.

Duggan then fumbled when Amen Ogbongbemi­ga stripped the ball from him at the TCU 26. But Sanders was under extreme pressure and threw an incompleti­on on fourth down.

Oklahoma State still had another shot after TCU failed to get a first down to run out the clock, but Sanders’ desperatio­n pass

on the final play of the game fell incomplete in a crowd near the goal line.

Tylan Wallace, the Oklahoma State senior playing in his hometown, had a 55-yard TD catch at the end of the third quarter to put the Cowboys up 22-21. He finished with seven catches for 92 yards.

Sanders finished 16-of-31 passing for 248 yards.

Duggan was only 12-of-26 passing, but

the Frogs still had two 100-yard receivers. Davis finishedwi­th six catches for 139 yards while Quentin Johnson had three catches for 114 yards.

After a 1-yard TD keeper in the first half, Duggan got his second rushing score when he faked a handoff and went 42-yards on a fourth-and-1 play, shedding a defender near the 25 on the opening drove of the second half.
