(Sports Network) – Andy Dalton threw a touchdown and ran two in, including the go-ahead score in the third quarter, as sixth-ranked TCU downed No. 24 Oregon State, 30-21.
Dalton went 17-for-27 with 175 yards and two interceptions, and also had 15 carries for 64 yards for the Horned Frogs (1-0), who finished last season 12-0 to capture the Mountain West Conference title, but lost to Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl.
Saturday’s win was the 30th of Dalton’s collegiate career, moving him into first all-time at the school, surpassing legend Sammy Baugh.
Ed Wesley finished the game with 17 carries for 134 yards and a score while Jeremy Kerley caught a touchdown as part of a six-reception, 49-yard effort for TCU.
Ryan Katz went 9-for-25 for 159 yards and two scores for the Beavers (0-1), who posted an 8-5 mark last season, but ended the campaign on a down note after a 44-20 loss to BYU in the Las Vegas Bowl. Jacquizz Rodgers had 18 carries for 75 yards and a score while James Rodgers and Jordan Bishop each caught a touchdown pass.
