Andy Dalton ran for two touchdowns and
threw for another score to make up for his two interceptions and
No. 6 TCU opened the season with a 30-21 victory over No. 24 Oregon
State on Saturday night.
Eight months after Dalton threw three interceptions in a Fiesta
Bowl loss that soured the Horned Frogs' breakthrough season, he
scored on a 4-yard keeper at the end of the third quarter to put
TCU ahead for good. Both his turnovers led to OSU touchdowns.
Dalton became TCU's winningest quarterback, his 30th victory
snapping a tie with "Slingin' Sammy" Baugh, who had held the mark
alone since the mid-1930s until being matched last year after the
Frogs' first undefeated regular season since 1938.
Brothers Jacquizz and James Rodgers both scored touchdowns for
Oregon State in their first college game in their home state.
