It’s deja vu for TCU, as the No. 15 Horned Frogs are tied with the winless Kansas Jayhawks 10-10 at halftime in Fort Worth.
The Frogs were plagued with another critical injury in the half, this time losing starting quarterback Trevone Boykin after he suffered an apparent leg injury on the Frogs’ opening. Gary Patterson said at halftime it is unlikely he will return in the game.
Wide receiver Josh Doctson, who suffered a wrist injury last weekend against Oklahoma State, started in the opening drive for the Frogs but has seen little action in the ballgame since.
The Frogs jumped out to an early 10-0 lead in the first quarter thanks to a KaVonte Turpin touchdown on a punt return and a 42 yard field goal by kicker Jaden Oberkrom later on in the quarter.
The Jayhawks responded with 10 unanswered points, executing a 42-yard field goal late in the first quarter and then scoring a 3-yard rushing touchdown by running back Taylor Cox with 11:29 to go in the 2nd quarter.
Senior back up Bram Kohlhausen came into the game at quarterback for the Frogs after Boykin exited the game.
The Frogs’ offense was shut out in the second quarter. It is the first time Kansas has not trailed at halftime since they had a 13-10 lead over TCU almost exactly a year ago in Lawrence, Kansas. The Jayhawks have had an average halftime deficit of 21 points this season.
