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. Dec 4 - 12:17 PM

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.
Nov 21 - 2:25 PM

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.
Nov 5 - 4:22 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.
Nov 1 - 3:23 PM

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.
Oct 31 - 1:23 PM

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.
Oct 29 - 8:08 PM

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.
Oct 22 - 7:19 PM

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.
Oct 8 - 4:28 PM

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.
Oct 1 - 9:11 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 31-of-45 passes for 452 yards, two touchdowns and an interception in Friday's 33-3 win over SMU.

The Horned Frogs ultimately pulled away for the win in the second half, but Hill and the offense struggled mightily in the first half. They hit the locker room holding a mere 6-3 advantage. Things improved from that point on, though, as Hill tossed a 75-yard touchdown pass to John Diarse just seconds into the third quarter and followed that up with a short two-yarder several minutes later. Through four games, Trill has passed for 1,487 yards with a 6/4 TD/INT ratio. He has also scored six rushing touchdowns.
Sep 23 - 11:26 PM

TCU sports information director Mark Cohen said that redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill was making a sign language gesture and not a throat-slash in Saturday's double-overtime loss to Arkansas.

Hill appeared to pull off ye olde throat slash after scoring the go-ahead touchdown late in the fourth quarter of Saturday's wild loss to Arkansas. He was penalized for unsportsmanlike conduct after the gesture. Per Cohen, this appears to just be a case of mistaken intent. Cohen told NBC's Newy Scruggs that the 6-foot-1, 215-pound redshirt junior was actually just making the sign language gesture for "rising kings."
Sep 12 - 2:53 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 36-of-56 passes for 377 yards, a touchdown and an interception while rushing for two scores in Saturday's 41-38 double-overtime loss to Arkansas.

Hill accumulated his passing yardage through volume more than efficiency. It was his rushing prowess that truly stood out in the tough defeat. The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder led the Horned Frogs with 93 yards rushing on 15 carries. Both of his ground scores came in the fourth quarter, the latter of which pushed TCU to a 28-20 lead with just over two minutes remaining. Arkansas would push back and eventually secure the win in double-overtime. Through two games, Trill has already thrown for 816 yards. He is well on his way to an impressive offensive campaign.
Sep 10 - 11:19 PM

TCU redshirt junior QB Kenny Hill completed 33-of-49 passes for 439 yards, two touchdowns and two interceptions while rushing for 45 yards and three touchdowns in Saturday's 59-41 win over South Dakota State.

HC Gary Patterson is probably having a chat with his defense as we speak, but no such complaints about the offense. Hill transitioned into the Horned Frog attack well and opened up the game in the second half, when he accounted for four of his five total touchdowns. The 6-foot-1, 215-pounder could post huge numbers for fantasy owners in this system.
