Boykin earns Big 12 Player of the Week


    Quarterback Trevone Boykin was named the Big 12 Offensive Player of the Week for his performance in TCU’s 48-14 win over Samford.

    The junior accumulated 349 yards of total offense in the victory, completing 29 of 41 passes for 320 yards and two touchdowns.

    Boykin also added 29 yards on the ground and a one-yard rushing touchdown in the third quarter.

    Although a quarterback position battle with senior transfer Matt Joeckel occurred throughout the summer, Boykin received the start on Saturday and led TCU scoring drives on seven of his 12 possessions.

    Boykin notched his second career 300-yard passing game in the win, and his 29 completions were a career high.

    The Horned Frogs will face the University of Minnesota Golden Gophers on September 13.
