TCU racked up 334 rushing yards and four rushing touchdowns in a blowout victory over the No. 7 Kansas State Wildcats on Saturday night.

Quarterback Trevone Boykin ran for a career-high 123 yards and three touchdowns. He was also 23 for 34 passing with 211 yards and a touchdown.

The TCU defense was impressive in holding Kansas State to 34 yards rushing and 20 points, the Wildcats' second-lowest total this season.

Boykin's performance included a spectacular flip into the end zone that has already garnered national attention on social media.

Junior running back Aaron Green had a huge day as the premier running back for the Horned Frogs.

The junior helped TCU fans forget about the injured B.J. Catalon with a sparkling performance of 171 yards and a touchdown on 18 carries, including highlight-worthy runs of 65 and 34 yards.

Wide receiver David Porter had a big day filling in for the injured Deante Gray, catching seven balls for a career-high 84 yards and a touchdown.

Last week's hero Jaden Oberkrom added two 26-yard field goals. He is now 16-for-20 on the season, and is a candidate for the Lou Groza award, given to the best kicker in the nation.

A total of 48,012 were in attendance for Saturday's night game, the third-largest amount in TCU history.

Students packed Amon G. Carter, setting a record for student attendance with 5,278 at the game – more than half of the entire student body.
