Frog secondary in need of confidence might have to get it the hard waySome day, some way, some how, the TCU secondary is going to have to stop someone — anyone — from throwing balls over its head for touchdowns. Burned them at Baylor. Burned them Saturday, too. Bears’ quarterback Robert Griffin III lit up the Waco sky a month ago, torching TCU for 359 yards passing and four touchdowns.
Frogs lose 40-33 heartbreaker in OT to SMUSMU (4-1) quarterback J.J. McDermott completed 23-of-45 passes for 349 yards and four touchdowns, the biggest being a 19-yard overtime heave to receiver Jeremy Johnson as the Mustangs beat TCU (3-2) 40-33 Saturday at Amon Carter Stadium. The win was SMU’s first over the Frogs since 2005 and snapped TCU’s 22-game home winning streak. But for most of the game, overtime didn’t seem like a possibility for TCU.
