Andy Dalton passed for a career-high 355
yards and three touchdowns and No. 4 TCU looked every bit like a
team worthy of busting into the BCS championship game with a 47-7
demolition of No. 6 Utah on Saturday.
Receiver Jeremy Kerley, a QB in high school, threw a TD pass as
the Horned Frogs (10-0, 6-0 Mountain West Conference) jumped out to
an early 20-0 lead, quieting a sellout crowd clad almost entirely
in black for the "blackout" showdown.
By halftime, the Horned Frogs had outgained Utah 328-72 en route
to a 23-0 lead. The loss snapped Utah's 21-game home winning streak
and dropped the Utes to 8-1 (5-1 MWC).
Dalton, whose 39 career victories are the most in the nation by
an active quarterback, made it look easy.
