TCU junior RB Aaron Green had 19 carries for 128 yards and two touchdowns on Saturday.

That marks back-to-back nice starts for Green, who's rolling in place of B.J. Catalon (upper-body). He ran up the middle for a nice 24-yard touchdown run late in the third quarter, showcasing the acceleration and burst that scouts like from the runner. Green is a San Antonio native and transferred to TCU because Ameer Abdullah was blocking his path for running glory. Once Catalon returns, TCU is expected to split carries between the two backs.

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin completed 26-of-36 passes for 330 yards, one touchdown and one interception in Saturday's 34-30 win over Kansas.

The Horned Frogs struggled with a frisky Jayhawk team, but managed to escape with a win. Boykin was coming off of one of the more athletic displays by a quarterback with his 219-yard passing/123-yard rushing effort against Kansas State last week, but he was relatively quiet on Saturday. He hit a 27-yard touchdown pass three minutes into the game, but did not put it in the endzone again. Kansas held him to just two yards rushing. Boykin is as athletic as any quarterback in the country, but he's still in the process of refining his pocket passing.

In the latest playoff rankings, TCU joined Mississippi State, Oregon and Florida State as part of the so-called "First Four."

Perhaps more surprising than TCU joining the grouping was that Oregon jumped over Florida State to move into second in the rankings. Alabama and Arizona State were ranked just outside of the playoff clump. Baylor, who has already beaten TCU, followed Arizona State. Should the Big-12 end in a conference tie between TCU and Baylor at the end of the season, it's possible that TCU makes the playoff while Baylor does not.

TCU junior RB Aaron Green "certainly has the attention of NFL scouts" after his performance against Kansas State, according to CBS Sports' Dane Brugler.

"A San Antonio native, Green left Lincoln due to his lack of playing time behind Ameer Abdullah and his desire to be closer to home. He will share the backfield duties once Catalon returns to the field, but Green certainly has the attention of NFL scouts after his performance over the weekend," Brugler wrote. The Nebraska-transfer carried the rock 18 times, averaging 9.5 yards a carry, with 171 yards rushing and one touchdown against Kansas State. Brugler notes that the TCU prospect "showed off his light feet and explosive lateral cuts to make defenders miss in space and then burst downfield with instant acceleration."

TCU junior RB Aaron Green ran the ball 18 times for 171 yards on Saturday.

Green was replacing regular starter B.J. Catalon, who was out with an upper-body injury. TCU didn't miss a beat, as Green was ripping off big runs on a regular basis against Kansas State. The Nebraska-transfer had a nifty 65-yard touchdown run in which he took a hand-off to the right, then revered course and picked up blockers on the other side of the field. "This is almost like a once in a lifetime opportunity," Green said. "We might potentially have a chance to play for a national championship."

TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin threw for 219 yards and rushed for 123 on 17 carries in Saturday's romp over Kansas State.

Boykin put on one of the most impressive displays of athleticism of any player this season, highlighted by a somersaulting run into the end zone in the third quarter.''I can do, like, back flips all day. Well, I can't do a forward flip, but I did today," Boykin said. "I can't necessarily do that on an everyday basis." We're with you Trevone, we're with you. We can't do that on an everyday basis either. Boykin still needs to improve his pocket passing and poise, but it's hard to deny his pure athleticism.

NFL.com's Gil Brandt compared TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin to Russell Wilson, but "faster and taller."

Well, that is high praise. We think Boykin is one of the most improved players in the country, but he is not nearly the passer Wilson was at Wisconsin, specifically in structure. That is not to say Boykin does not win in the pocket and in rhythm, because he absolutely does. The TCU quarterback struggled against WVU and did not put nearly as much velocity on his passes thanks to the weather.

TCU junior RB B.J. Catalon will miss Saturday's game against Kansas State with an upper body injury.

While the exact nature of the injury hasn't been disclosed, it was suffered after Catalon took a hit just prior to TCU's game-winning kick against West Virginia. Catalon didn't practice this week. This season, the junior has rushed for 493 yards and 10 touchdowns on 98 carries. Horned Frog quarterback Trevone Boykin might have to put TCU on his back against Kansas State.

CBS Sports' Dane Brugler wrote that "although [TCU redshirt junior QB Trevone Boykin's] accuracy can be streaky," the quarterback acted as the catalyst for the offense.

This season, Boykin is completing 57% of his passes. Even with the accuracy issues, Brugler wrote that Boykin, "us[ed] his arm and legs to move the ball and beat defenders." He's rushed 94 times 424 yards so far. Brugler went on to say that the junior "does a great job spreading the wealth among his receivers, especially [Josh Dotson]." As a prospect, Boykin has "freakish athleticism and sensational arm talent" according to NFL.com's Bucky Brooks. Boykin is still developing as a quarterback and those accuracy numbers should continue to improve as he learns the position.

TCU junior RB B.J. Catalon has not practiced this week after injuring his upper torso just before the winning field goal was kicked against WVU.

Head coach Gary Patterson said he will not update Catalon's status until Friday. As TCU's top running back, Catalon has rushed for 493 yards and 10 touchdowns on 98 carries this season. The Horned Frogs face Kansas State on Saturday.

TCU redshirt junior Trevone Boykin passed for 168 yards and a touchdown in TCU's 31-30 win over West Virginia on Saturday.

The Trevone Boykin bandwagon had been traveling at approximately 100-mph after last week's 82-point showing by the Horned Frogs. That bandwagon slammed into a brick wall against West Virginia on Saturday. Boykin completed just 12-of-30 passes for 168 yards. He threw a 47-yard touchdown to Deante Grey in the first quarter, but did more or less nothing after that. He was also picked once. On the positive side, Boykin did manage to rush nine times for 49 yards and a score. It'll be interesting to see how he bounces back form this one. Boykin had passed for fewer than 280-yards just once prior to the Saturday struggle. He's a stud athlete who is still learning the position and should only get better. Games like Saturday's are to be expected from time to time as he continues to grow and mature.

NFL Media analyst Bucky Brooks TCU redshirt junior Trevone Boykin's "freakish athleticism and sensational arm talent has helped the Horned Frogs become the top scoring offense in the nation."

"Boykin's freakish athleticism and sensational arm talent has helped the Horned Frogs become the top scoring offense in the nation. TCU is averaging 55 points per game in Big 12 play, with Boykin's ability to connect with Josh Doctson, Kolby Listenbee and Deante Gray on an assortment of short, intermediate and deep throws setting the tone for the unit," Brooks writes. The TCU prospect has already thrown for 2,306 yards and 21 touchdowns with just three interceptions, while running for 374 yards. Brooks notes that Boykin "is one of the most explosive athletes in college football, as evidenced by his ability to play quarterback, running back and wide receiver during his collegiate career."

According to NFL.com's Charles Davis, TCU redshirt junior Trevone Boykin is a legitimate prospect given the way that NFL teams are using dual-threat quarterbacks.

"He looks like he has more than enough arm strength, and I think he's a legit prospect with the way dual-threat QBs are hitting the league," wrote Davis of Boykin. This season, the TCU star has exploded, leading to some big upsets and gaudy stats. He's thrown for 2,306 yards and 21 touchdowns against just three interceptions, while running for 374 yards. On top of that, writes Davis, "[Boykin] still has another year of eligibility remaining and should continue to grow in the position, as he's still very young in terms of his career as a QB. He's dynamic and impresses me more and more each time I see him."

TCU redshirt junior WR Josh Doctson practiced on Wednesday for the first time since spraining his ankle against Texas Tech in Week 9.

TCU head coach Gary Patterson said that Doctson had practiced "a little bit" on Wednesday, but did not say concretely who would be starting at wideout for him against West Virginia on Saturday. "It’ll be [Emmanuel Porter] or Josh, one of the two." Porter is a true freshman. This season, Doctson has led the high-powered TCU offense with 573 yards and seven touchdowns.
Oct 30 - 4:23 PM

TCU HC Gary Patterson pointed to redshirt junior Trevone Boykin letting the offense run itself as the QB's biggest improvement.

We'd argue no quarterback outside of Everett Golson has improved more this season. Boykin actually looks like a legitimate NFL prospect, making quick decisions when necessary, improvising on other plays when pressured, and using a ridiculous vertical arm to test defenses at every section of the field. TCU faces one of their top tests of the season in WVU this Saturday.
