TCU vs. Baylor 2012: Big offensive game paces Frogs over Bears, 49-21

TCU's 49-21 drubbing of Baylor in Waco, Texas on Saturday was due to two things: the Horned Frogs didn't turn the ball over, and they were successful at both running and throwing the ball.

Frogs 'O War, SB Nation's TCU blog, had this reaction:

TCU didn't turn the ball over. Apart from the ball coming out on (quarterback Trevone) Boykin early in the first quarter, which he then recovered, TCU did not put the ball on the turf or in the hands of a defensive back all game. And as a result of holding onto the ball, the TCU offense was absolutely deadly- 242 yards on the ground and 266 in the air, balance reigned once more for the Frogs. What this did was force the Baylor defense to die by a thousand cuts, picking up third down conversion after third down conversion and keeping the Baylor offense off the field.

The Frogs scored 21 unanswered points in the fourth quarter, making the game appear more one-sided than it was for three quarters.

This is a game that will be big for TCU this season -- it was a needed win for bowl eligibility, but it was a game that Baylor recruits, including six who hold offers from TCU, were watching in person.
