TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin (ankle) completed 18-of-33 passes for 148 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Friday's 28-21 2OT win over Baylor.
The 49 total points scored might seem on the low side for these two teams, but even that final score is underselling just how ugly Friday's game turned out to be. TCU punted 12 times, Baylor punted 10 times and after a five-yard touchdown run by Baylor back Devin Chafin near the end of the first quarter, neither team scored an offensive touchdown until the first overtime. Oh, and the game was delayed by lightning for almost an hour and was played in a constant downpour. For his part, Boykin looked noticeably tentative in his running (14 carries, 16 yards, touchdown) at times thanks to the tender ankle that kept him out of last weekend's loss to Oklahoma. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior finishes the 2015 regular season campaign with 3,575 passing yards, a 31/10 TD/INT ratio, 612 rushing yards and nine rushing touchdowns. Nov 28 - 12:26 AM

The Baylor-TCU game at Amon G. Carter Stadium is in a lightning delay.

It won't kick off until at least 7:15 PM local time (CST). The Bears and Horned Frogs have an underrated and heated rivalry, so amusingly fans (mostly students) from both sides refused to leave the stands even as the announcer asked spectators to head to the concourse, presumably to prove their respective toughness. Hopefully the skies clear soon.

TCU beat writer expects senior QB Trevone Boykin to play versus Baylor, but is uncertain for how long.

Boykin practiced this week but has been held out with an ankle injury. Boykin will be without his go-to receiver Josh Doctson, who owns a massive piece of the school's receiving yards. TCU is missing a number of other players on both sides of the ball, and Baylor has talent on the defensive line. Safe to say we don;t love the matchup for Boykin.

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that senior QB Trevone Boykin (ankle) was "fun to watch" in Sunday practice.

Patterson admitted that Boykin's not at 100% with his ankle yet, but the 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior was rarin' to go for Sunday's practice. "He was the one that wanted to get taped up and go [on Sunday]," Patterson said. "I was not the guy that pushed him to do that. It was, ‘Yeah, it’s feeling better, let’s tape it up, let’s see what I can do today.’ It was fun to watch him back." Boykin's status for Friday's showdown with Baylor remains uncertain, though it's certainly a good sign that he feels comfortable enough with the ankle to practice. Should he be unable to start, Patterson indicated that third-string QB Bram Kohlhausen has the current edge over second-stringer Foster Sawyer given Kohlhausen's play in the second half of Saturday's 30-29 loss to Oklahoma.

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin practiced on Sunday and is "doing his best" to play against Baylor.

Boykin was held out of Saturday's game against Oklahoma with the ankle injury. Baylor has a talented defense, especially up front. With TCU missing their starting center, the quarterback will need to be mobile to likely avoid pressure. Boykin can absolutely do that when healthy.
Nov 23 - 2:09 PM

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin will not start and is unlikely to play at all against Oklahoma, according to ESPN's Holly Rowe.

Foster Sawyer will start in Boykin's place. Not only does this impact TCU, a one loss team, it also impacts Oklahoma's "strong win" list. This game had been circled in pen as a pivotal matchup in helping determine the college football playoff, but TCU will now be without Trevone Boykin and Josh Doctson, the vast, vast majority of their offense. Foster Sawyer is a redshirt freshman.

TCU HC Gary Patterson says senior QB Trevone Boykin (ankle) should be cleared for the Oklahoma if he can practice by Thursday.

This is barely news in that it's an assumed revelation; if you're sick today but not puking tomorrow, your wife might tell a friend that it's likely you'll be okay for Saturday's dinner reservations. Of course, Mr. Boykin was a Heisman contender a few weeks ago, so we're obligated to pass along all injury-related dispatches, especially in advance of a game as big as this weekend's tilt versus the Sooners.
Nov 18 - 4:47 PM

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin and senior WR Josh Doctson are both considered questionable to play against Oklahoma.

Head coach Gary Patterson says he will have more information tomorrow. Boykin left last weekend's contest with an ankle injury. Doctson played despite a wrist injury and only made one catch. Obviously Oklahoma is coming off a huge win over Baylor, and TCU needs their two best players against a balanced Sooners squad.
Nov 16 - 12:28 PM

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin (ankle) will not return to Saturday's game against Kansas.

TCU Radio reports that Boykin suffered a high ankle sprain. That injury likely occurred in the first quarter, though Boykin remained in the game and was sacked in the second, a hit that also may have caused (or exacerbated) the injury. Bram Kohlhausen initially came on in relief and did nothing, so HC Gary Patterson has turned to third-stringer Foster Sawyer. It's desperate times in Fort Worth, as the Horned Frogs are tied in the middle of the third quarter 10-10 with the winless Kansas Jayhawks.
Nov 14 - 2:24 PM

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin left Saturday's game against Kansas in the second quarter with an ankle injury.

Boykin twisted his ankle in the first quarter but kept playing. Still gimpy 20 minutes or so later, HC Gary Patterson sent him to the locker room, probably so a doctor can look at the ankle to see if a serious injury has occurred. Boykin limped into the bowels of the stadium. He's questionable to return.

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin's "problems with progressions, accuracy and ball placement are serious concerns for evaluators," NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks observes.

"The Heisman Trophy front-runner has always been regarded as a better athlete than quarterback in NFL circles, but his disappointing performance against Oklahoma State confirmed his limited potential as a signal-caller at the next level," Brooks wrote. The TCU prospect did throw for a whopping 445 yards and one touchdown on the day, but his four interceptions put a black cloud over his performance. With Boykin's go-to-guy in Josh Doctson out of the game with a wrist injury, Boykin showed some limitations to his game.
Nov 9 - 3:55 PM

TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin completed 35-of-57 passes for 445 yards, one touchdown and four interceptions in Saturday's 49-29 upset loss to Oklahoma State.

Upset loss for the Horned Frogs, so much as one can be upset by an undefeated team. Boykin lost leading wide receiver Josh Doctson to a wrist injury early in the contest, which severely handicapped the TCU passing game. To wit, this was the first time in TCU's last eight games that the 6-foot-2, 205-pound Boykin's failed to throw for at least two touchdowns. Despite the tough day, those in daily leagues shouldn't expect Boykin to suddenly fall apart. He remains one of the best quarterbacks in the country.
Nov 7 - 7:57 PM

An NFC area scout compared TCU senior QB Trevone Boykin to Johnny Manziel.

He means it as a compliment. "I need to look at him more, but (Trevone) Boykin looks to me like he can do everything that Johnny Football was supposed to be able to do," the scout said. "I'm kind of on an island, but I think he has a chance to be an NFL quarterback." The scout had a fifth-round grade on Manziel and believes Boykin should be drafted in a similar range. "I don't know if this scout is completely on an island, but I can tell you that several scouts believe that Boykin might be best suited to play a different position in the pros," replied's Lance Zierlein. "Boykin has a decent arm, but he certainly has been helped by the system that TCU runs. The biggest knock on Boykin is that the scouting community believes that he will measure in at less than 6-feet tall and that he's too small for the position. I anticipate Boykin getting a legitimate shot at quarterback in the pre-draft process."
Nov 4 - 6:02 PM

TCU HC Gary Patterson indicated that senior QB Trevone Boykin has done a good job of keeping his focus on football games, rather than the Heisman Trophy.

"[Boykin] understands that for him to keep reaching higher in his goals, we have to keep reaching higher in our goals as a football team. That goes hand-in-hand," said Patterson. The TCU head coach also indicated that Boykin's intentionally limited his media availability so as to focus on the games at hand. Whatever he's doing, it's working. The 6-foot-2, 205-pound senior ranks Top-3 in 11 statistical categories nationally. These include total offense, touchdown passes and completion percentage. Between passing and rushing, Boykin has accumulated 3451 total yards while accounting for 34 total touchdowns. TCU closes out the regular season with contests against Oklahoma State (road), Kansas (home), Oklahoma (road) and Baylor (home). Oklahoma State, Oklahoma and Baylor have just one loss between them. Should the Horned Frogs dance through that schedule without being burned, they're a likely shoo-in for the CFB Playoff.
