Ed Wesley scored twice, TCU's
swarming defense forced two fumbles and the fifth-ranked Frogs
overcame a lethargic start to beat Colorado State 27-0 on Saturday.
The Frogs (5-0, 1-0 Mountain West) were making their first trip
out of the state of Texas this season and struggled early, leading
just 6-0 at halftime.
Wesley's two touchdowns in the third quarter helped TCU pull
away from the Rams (1-4, 0-1), who came in as heavy underdogs.
The Frogs rotated in a steady stream of fresh tailbacks all game
long as they gained a season-high 346 yards on the ground. Matthew
Tucker led the way with 87 yards, while Wesley added 78.
Andy Dalton had a solid afternoon, doing as much damage with his
feet as his right arm. Dalton finished with 67 yards rushing and
threw for another 109, including a 39-yard touchdown pass to Jimmy
Young early in the fourth quarter.
