Duggan leads TCU to upset of No. 9 Texas

Max Duggan passed for 231 yards and rushed for 79 more, including a decisive 26-yard touchdown run with 4:01 to play, as TCU continued its recent domination of Texas with a 33-31 upset of the No. 9 Longhorns on Saturday afternoon in Big 12 play in Austin, Texas.

The Longhorns drove to the TCU 1-yard line before Keaontay Ingram fumbled on an inside running play with 2:32 to play.

Duggan, who also had a 5-yard scoring run in the second quarter, was 20 of 30 through the air and survived despite getting pummeled by the Texas defense. The Horned Frogs (1-1, 1-1 Big 12) outgained Texas 457-388 in the win.

Texas (2-1, 1-1) got 236 yards passing and three touchdowns from Sam Ehlinger, but the Longhorns’ Heisman Trophy-candidate quarterback was just 17 for 36 through the air and completed only five of his 16 throws in the first half.

The Horned Frogs have defeated Texas in six of the past seven years. Since beginning Big 12 play in 2012, TCU is 7-2 against Texas, including a 4-1 record in Austin.

TCU jumped to the front with 4:01 to play in the first quarter on a 1-yard TD plunge by Darwin Barlow before the Longhorns tied the game on a 5-yard touchdown pass from Ehlinger to Jake Smith.

Duggan then scooted into the end zone on a 5-yard QB keeper with 14:22 left in the second quarter. Texas responded with Ehlinger’s 45-yard scoring pass to Brennan Eagles on a deep crossing route that evened the score.

Griffin Kell kicked two field goals in a 33-second span at the end of the second quarter, from 27 and 32 yards, respectively, to give the Horned Frogs a 20-14 advantage at the half. Kell then added a 49-yard FG on TCU’s opening possession of the third quarter to push the TCU lead to 23-14.

Texas pulled to within 23-21 on a 7-yard fourth-down TD pass to Roschon Johnson with 9:56 left in the third quarter. But the Horned Frogs bounced back with Kell’s fourth field goal of the game, a 28-yarder, with 13:36 to play.

The Longhorns took the lead for the first time on a 7-yard pass from Ehlinger to Malcolm Epps and added a two-point conversion run by Ingram with 9:56 remaining. But Duggan’s late run and Ingram’s costly fumble handed the Horned Frogs the win.
