Recap: TCU vs. Minnesota

Fort Worth, TX (SportsNetwork.com) - Trevone Boykin passed for 258 yards and two touchdowns, both to receiver Josh Doctson, as the TCU Horned Frogs took down the Minnesota Golden Gophers, 30-7, in a non-conference tilt at Amon G. Carter Stadium Saturday.

Boykin completed 27-of-46 pass attempts for the two scores and an interception, and added a team-best 92 rushing yards for TCU (2-0). Doctson caught six passes for 64 yards and the two scores to pace the Horned Frogs in the win.

Mitch Leidner connected on 12-of-26 passing for 151 yards, but tossed three interceptions to help bury Minnesota (2-1). Chris Streveler, who was 2-of-3 passing, threw the only touchdown for the Gophers in the loss.

TCU got on the board quickly against Minnesota, as Boykin found Doctson for his first score of the half on a 13-yard pass play. The Horned Frogs led 7-0 to play in the first quarter until a Jaden Oberkrom 46-yard field goal with 9:19 to play in the period closed out first-quarter scoring. TCU led the Gophers, 10-0.

It was Boykin to Doctson once again early in the second frame. TCU's signal caller found Doctson for his second scoring reception of the half, this time for seven yards, with 13:50 left in the half. The score topped off a three- play, 27-yard drive and gave the Horned Frogs a 17-0 advantage.

A few minutes later, TCU tailback B.J. Catalon took a handoff one yard into the end zone for a 24-0 lead. The teams went into the midway break with the same score.

In the third quarter, Oberkrom hit a 45-yard field goal with 11:02 to play to give the Horned Frogs a 27-0 advantage, then connected on a 37-yard boot with 1:43 left in the period.

Minnesota finally broke up TCU's potential shutout with a 12-yard scoring strike from Streveler to Maxx Williams. The touchdown closed out the game's scoring with 10:56 left to play.

TCU held Minnesota to 99 rushing yards, and the Frogs outgained the Gophers in terms of total offense in the contest, 427-268. Minnesota had the edge in possession time, 34:25 to 25:35, but still couldn't make anything happen offensively.
