The Frogs controlled the ball and time of possession (34:51), putting up 457 yards overall on 80 plays. 226 by way of the run, 231 by air.

While the Longhorns bent but didn’t break from the mid 2nd quarter until the late 4th quarter, holding TCU to four field goals, TCU still racked up 33 points and made some crucial plays that led to touchdowns where they simply whipped Chris Ash by formation. The most notable example was the way Texas played TCU’s empty set, also known as the “Hey, There’s A QB Draw Coming, Dummy” formation. It ultimately cost Texas the game. Of course, a dozen other coaching errors, player errors, and refereeing gaffes also cost Texas the game, so get in line.
