TCU vs. Oklahoma State: Trevone Boykin becoming more comfortable

Tom Pennington

TCU's redshirt freshman starting QB has been impressive since taking over the role a few weeks ago.

Trevone Boykin has grown more comfortable into his roll as TCU Horned Frogs starting quarterback, writes Stefan Stevenson of the Star-Telegram. Boykin was thrust into the role a few weeks ago in place of suspended starter Casey Paschall. The redshirt freshman has received the vote of confidence from his teammates:

"This is your huddle, your offense, and you take the ball and take charge," offensive lineman Eric Tausch said recalling the message to Boykin. "And he's done a fantastic job doing that."

Boykin was especially impressive in leading the Horned Frogs back from 10 points down last week to force overtime against Texas Tech, though TCU eventually lost. He and the Frogs (5-2, 2-2 Big 12) take on Oklahoma State (4-2, 2-1) on Saturday at 2:30 p.m. CT in a pivotal conference game. TCU head coach Gary Patterson was certainly impressed with Boykin last weekend:

"It was awesome. It doesn't matter if it's a parking lot or if it's the back yard. He likes to go play. He took some hits and is still ticking and going about his business."

Boykin has struggled with interceptions, however. He's thrown five picks, though two of them were deflected off of TCU receivers' hands. All of the picks have come in TCU's two losses.
