TCU QB Kenny Hill led the country with 38 dropped passes in 2016, according to Pro Football Focus.
Hill was criticized for an inconsistent first season in Fort Worth, but he wasn't done many favors by his inexperienced receiving corps. "We threw too many interceptions," TCU HC Gary Patterson said last week. "We all know that. And we were last in the NCAA in drops. So if we want to get better, we’ve got to do a better job of catching it and we’ve got to do a better job of throwing it to us. There’s no secret of the things we’ve got to get better at." Hill finished with 3,208 passing yards on a 61.1 completion percentage but led the Big 12 in interceptions with 13 and was 6-6 as a starter. Utah's Troy Williams, Idaho's Matt Linehan, Memphis' Riley Ferguson and Louisville's Lamar Jackson were the four other quarterbacks who had 33 or more dropped passes last year. Feb 8 - 5:38 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 18 of 27 for 146 yards and two touchdowns as well as 72 rushing yards and a touchdown on the ground in the school's 31-23 loss to Georgia.

Hill flashed the same promise early in this contest that he did with Texas A&M, but the Horned Frogs fizzled out. Georgia was able to use a spy in the second half and force TCU in unfavorable situations with tackles for loss. Hill should be TCU's starting quarterback next year.

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that he expects redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill (foot) to start against Georgia in the Liberty Bowl on Friday.

Hill continues to rehab a foot injury initially sustained versus Kansas State in the regular-season finale. "I don't think he's 100%," Patterson said, "but he's close." Hill has been incredibly up-and-down throughout the current campaign. Through 12 games, he has thrown for 3,062 yards (60.8% completions) with a 15/13 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 537 yards and nine additional scores.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill (foot) has returned to practice.

Hill injured his foot in a loss to Kansas State in TCU's final game of the 2016 campaign. Back in action now, with HC Gary Patterson saying, "He missed about the first half of [bowl] practices, and he’s been back a little bit. We’ll find out. He’s been running around." Foster Sawyer would draw the Liberty Bowl start against Georgia if Hill is not healthy enough to give that one a go on December 30.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill was 5-of-11 passing for 52 yards in Saturday's loss to Kansas State.

He also rushed for 50 yards on seven carries. Hill started this game on the sidelines, but Gary Patterson changed his tune after watching starter Foster Sawyer go 12-of-25 for 86 yards and an interception. And so Hill was inserted despite an ankle injury to predictable results. We'd guess Hill will close out the year as starter in the bowl game.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill went 15-for-29 for 150 yards and an interception in a 31-9 blowout win over TCU on Friday.

Hill was once again ineffective through the air, but he redeemed himself in exploiting Texas' issues against the run. Hill scrambled around for 78 yards and ran for two touchdowns on a 6.0 ypc average. The Horned Frogs (6-5, 4-4 Big 12) became bowl eligible with the victory. They host Kansas State in the regular season finale next week.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill will start against Texas on Friday.

Foster Sawyer has come on to replace Hill in two of TCU's last three games, most recently in Saturday's 31-6 loss to Oklahoma State. In reference to that one, Horned Frogs HC Gary Patterson said that "[t]he game was a little bit out of hand," hence Sawyer's entrance into the proceedings. For his part, Hill has thrown for 2,860 yards (61.9% completions) with a 15/12 TD/INT ratio while rushing for 409 yards and seven additional touchdowns. TCU (5-5) has two games remaining on their schedule and will need one victory against either Texas or Kansas State if they are to achieve bowl eligibility.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill threw for 244 yards and ran for 85 more in a 62-22 upset victory over 17th-ranked Baylor on Saturday.

Perhaps more importantly, the 6-foot-1, 215-pounder didn't turn the ball over once. Hill hit Taj Williams for 37-yard touchdown on TCU's second play, and the Horned Frogs kept running from there, the first of 31 consecutive points. TCU HC Gary Patterson benched Hill for Foster Sawyer last week, but we'd guess that Hill bought himself some leash today. TCU (5-4, 3-3) has a bye before hosting Oklahoma State on Nov. 19.

TCU started redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill Saturday against Baylor.

He'll be on a short leash. Redshirt sophomore QB Foster Sawyer replaced a benched Hill last week.
Sat, Nov 5, 2016 04:22:00 PM

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that both redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill and redshirt sophomore QB Foster Sawyer could play against Baylor on Saturday.

On Monday, Patterson said that Hill would "probably" be the starter, but he clearly is not set on the 6-foot-1, 205-pound Aggie transfer. Trill was benched in Saturday's loss to Texas Tech after throwing for 160 yards and a pick, with Sawyer taking over to hit on 6-of-17 passes for 86 yards and a score. On the fantasy front, neither quarterback makes for a starting option, regardless of who Patterson eventually decides to toss out to the lions.

TCU HC Gary Patterson said that redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill will "probably" be the starter against Baylor on Saturday.

Hill was benched due to ineffectiveness in this weekend's low-scoring (!) double-overtime loss to Texas Tech. He managed just 16-of-29 passing for 160 yards and an interception in that contest, failing to throw for a touchdown for the first time in eight games. Foster Sawyer entered in his place in the fourth quarter and proceeded to complete 6-of-17 passes for 86 yards and a touchdown. Even if Hill holds onto the starting job, we would steer clear for fantasy purposes. In his last three games, the 6-foot-1, 205-pounder has thrown for a combined 514 yards with a 2/5 TD/INT ratio.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill was benched in the fourth quarter of Saturday's 27-24 double-overtime loss to Texas Tech.

How easy was it for one of the nation's worst defenses to get into Hill's head? Well, hear it from them. Said Red Raider Malik Jenkins: "We just knew we had to get in Kenny Hill's face a lot and attack, attack, attack." Hill went 16-for-29 for 160 yards with one interception and 35 rushing yards prior to getting yanked for Foster Sawyer. We'll update you on the Frogs' quarterback intentions next week, but after Sawyer played well in Hill's place, you'd have to expect him to draw the start. The Horned Frogs (4-4, 2-3 Big 12) have a road trip to Baylor on deck.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill was largely ineffective in Saturday's 34-10 loss to West Virginia, completing 18-of-31 passes for 148 yards, a touchdown and an interception.

Oh dear. This makes for two out-and-out stinkers by Hill, who was intercepted thrice by Kansas last time he took the field. Not only has Trill's passing fallen off, he has essentially been a non-factor in the rushing game since the second week of the season. After scoring six touchdowns on the ground through his first three games, he has scored just one rushing touchdown in his last four games. At this juncture, it is not safe to trust the 6-foot-1, 205-pounder for fantasy purposes unless the match-up calls for his consideration.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 17-of-32 passes for 206 yards, one touchdown and three interceptions in Saturday's 24-23 victory over Kansas.

Though Hill entered this game as Pro Football Focus' No. 3-graded Big 12 quarterback, we'd imagine he's running short on leash for his starting job. Playing against one of the FBS' worst defenses, Hill played his worst game of the season and perhaps even his life. To be fair, he did rally with a pair of fourth-quarter scoring drives that saved TCU's bacon, including a 25-yard touchdown pass to Jaelan Austin with 13:54 left to cut Kansas' lead to 23-21 and then the last-minute drive that set up the game-winning 34-yard Brandon Hatfield field goal. The Horned Frogs improved to 4-2 with the too-close-for-comfort win.

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 26-of-44 passes for 449 yards, five touchdowns and an interception in Saturday's 52-46 loss to Oklahoma.

Hill started out hot, throwing three touchdown passes in the first quarter. The Horned Frogs jumped out to a 21-7 advantage heading into second, at which point, Oklahoma went off and TCU went quiet. The Sooners would outscore Trill and friends 42-3 over the next two quarters. And then it was time for Hill to shine once more. In the fourth, he would toss two more touchdowns, hitting Taj Williams for both scores. That work would draw TCU to within 49-46, but they would not score again in the game. Hill has now turned in three 400-yard passing showings. Despite his prolific yardage totals, Saturday was his first game with more than two touchdown passes.
