Barlow ignites fast start as TCU topples Baylor

Freshman running back Darwin Barlow rushed for 117 yards and a touchdown to lead TCU to a 33-23 win at Baylor in a Big 12 contest on Saturday.

TCU (2-3, 2-3) jumped all over Baylor (1-3, 1-3) from the onset, scoring three touchdowns in the first quarter to take a 20-0 lead.

The first score was a 3-yard touchdown run by Barlow with 9:06 left in the first quarter that gave the Horned Frogs a 7-0 lead.

TCU seized a 14-0 lead with 7:54 left in the first on a 67-yard punt return for a touchdown by junior Derius Davis.

The third touchdown of the first quarter was a 13-yard scoring strike from sophomore quarterback Max Duggan to junior wideout Taye Barber.

TCU then made it 27-0 with 13:20 remaining until halftime on a 30-yard touchdown run by freshman running back Zach Evans.

Following a 33-yard field goal by Griffin Kell with 9:07 left in the second quarter, Baylor finally got on the scoreboard right before halftime. The Bears cut into their deficit on a 1-yard touchdown pass from senior Charlie Brewer to sophomore tight end Ben Sims with 14 seconds left until the half.

After TCU went up 33-7 with 10:24 left in the third quarter on a 34-yard field goal by Kell, Baylor began its attempted comeback by scoring 16 straight points.

Brewer hit Sims for a 3-yard touchdown pass. After a 27-yard field goal by sophomore John Mayers, freshman running back Craig Williams scored on a 32-yard touchdown run with 10:25 remaining to cut TCU’s lead to 33-23.

Baylor quickly got the ball back and drove to the TCU 42-yard line, but failed on a fourth-and-2 conversion attempt with 6:24 remaining.

Baylor did not get the ball back, as TCU mounted a drive down inside the Baylor 10-yard line to kill the clock.
