Andy Dalton threw four touchdown
passes, including two barely a minute apart late in the first half,
and No. 4 TCU narrowly missed a third consecutive shutout in a 31-3
victory against BYU on Saturday.
The Frogs led just 3-0 with two minutes left before halftime
when a sack forced the Cougars to punt from their 4-yard line.
Given good field position, Dalton found Josh Boyce on a 35-yard
score two plays later.
TCU (7-0, 3-0 Mountain West) got the ball right back on an
interception, and Dalton hit a wide-open Jimmy Young in the end
zone for a 14-yard score that made it 17-0 with 26 seconds left in
BYU (2-5, 1-2) had just 14 total yards in the first half but
ended TCU's shutout streak at 10 quarters with a 70-yard drive to a
short field goal late in the third.
