Tech falls at TCU for first time since 2014



FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — TCU quarterback Max Duggan ran for 154 yards and three touchdowns on a day when he threw for only 73 yards, and the Horned Frogs snapped a five-game home losing streak with a 34-18 win over Texas Tech on Saturday.

The Horned Frogs (3-3, 3-3 Big 12) hadn’t won at home since beating Texas on Oct. 26, 2019, and had lost their first three games at Amon G. Carter Stadium this season. The win also snapped a five-game streak in the series against Texas Tech (2-5, 1-5) in which the visiting team had won each time.

Texas Tech quarterback Henry Colombi was sacked five times while completing 23 of 40 passes for 234 yards with two long second-half touchdowns and two interceptions. Ja’Lynn Polk had a 60-yard catch-and-run when C.J. Ceasar II fell down, and the usual third-string sophomore cornerback in his first start for TCU was also beat on Erik Ezukanma’s 57-yarder.

After TCU’s opening drive started at the Tech 33, Duggan’s deep pass on the first play was intercepted in the end zone by Zech McPhearson. That ended Duggan’s streak of 127 consecutive passes without a pick.

Trey Wolff kicked a 40-yard field goal on the final play of the first half, Tech’s first made field goal this season. But he was wide left on a 37-yard attempt with 2:44 left in the game.
