TCU wins on a Field Goal as clock expires

Written by Tony Ghaul

The TCU Horned Frogs defeated the Baylor Bears in dramatic fashion on Saturday with a 29-28 victory on a 40-yard field goal as time expired.

TCU’s magical season nearly came to crashing halt Saturday, but the Horned Frogs scored nine points in the final two minutes at Baylor. Griffin Kell’s 42-yard field goal as time expired lifted TCU to its 11th straight win this season.

Baylor scored 14 points in the fourth quarter to win after trailing 20-14 at one point. After another touchdown from the Bears midway through the final frame, TCU had a chance late in the contest to score and potentially tie the game with a two-point conversion, but Baylor’s defense held to preserve a two-point lead.

TCU got the ball back after a punt and QB Max Duggan put the Horned Frogs in range to win.

“We practiced it, it looks more frantic than it is, it was a little dicey there without a timeout,” TCU coach Sonny Dykes said. “You got to give them a ton of credit man. Our guys delivered when we had to.”
