TCU’s Trevone Boykin was in video-game mode vs. West Virginia
TCU coach Gary Patterson has warned his quarterback about flipping into the end zone. Oh man, Patterson hates it. But really, at this point, what’s the coach going to do?
Trevone Boykin added another one of his patented highlight-reel front flips into the end zone Thursday night as part of another brilliant performance to lead No. 5 TCU to a 40-10 win over West Virginia. Once again Boykin stuffed his Heisman portfolio with seemingly endless clips of awesomeness.
Boykin improved the Horned Frogs to 8-0 overall and 5-0 in the Big 12. He finished the night completing 32 of 47 passes for 388 yards, three touchdowns and no interceptions. He now has 28 touchdown passes to just five interceptions on the season. He added a team-high 84 rushing yards and the one high-flying, Patterson-defying touchdown run.
It was also a milestone night on a couple of fronts. Boykin surpassed 10,000 career passing yards to become only the second TCU quarterback to reach the mark along with Cincinnati Bengals quarterback Andy Dalton. As for total yards, Boykin now stands alone, eclipsing Dalton’s former record of 11,960. Boykin set the new mark with a side-arm toss to his favorite target Josh Doctson for a 9-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

Doctson, meanwhile, broke the school’s single-season record for receptions.
Next up for Boykin and the Frogs is a tough road test at unbeaten No. 12 Oklahoma State on Nov. 7.
