The TCU Horned Frogs were able to get on the scoreboard first when Elisha Olabode intercepted Oklahoma State quarterback Wes Lunt, and returned it 11 yards for a touchdown. The TCU defense also forced a fumble later in the first quarter, and now lead 14-3.
After punting the ball on two straight possessions, the TCU offense was able to mount a six-play drive that went 83 yards. The drive ended with Trevone Boykin completing an 18-yard touchdown pass to LaDarius Brown.
Oklahoma State was able to get on the board when they converted a 22-yard field goal and made it a 14-3 TCU lead. On that Oklahoma State scoring drive, the TCU defense forced Oklahoma State to kick that field goal despite having 1st-and-goal at the 7-yard line.
The defense has been the key for TCU having a 14-3 lead. On offense Boykin has been playing well enough to keep TCU moving the ball, plus he has the game's only offensive touchdown.
