TCU 23, Minnesota 17

CFBFR Player of the Game: Josh Doctson, WR, TCU
Three Things to Know…
1. Minnesota’s secondary is legit

Trevone Boykin completed just one of 11 passes thrown 15 or more yards down the field against Minnesota in 2014. This year, he improved to a whopping two of 11.

With four seniors starting in the secondary, Minnesota was able to slow down the TCU offense by completely taking away the big plays down the field.

2. Boykin needs Doctson

Boykin was eight of 12 when targeting Doctson on Thursday. And while Doctson’s big plays were limited, he was still the only reliable playmaker for TCU.

On passes thrown at least 10 yards down the field, Boykin was three of five when targeting Doctson, but just three of nine when targeting all other receivers.

3. Terrell Lathan steps up for TCU defense

With the departure of Paul Dawson to the NFL, TCU needs another defensive star to emerge.

While the Horned Frogs only pressured Minnesota quarterback Mitch Leidner on eight of his 38 dropbacks, Lathan did the most damage, recordong one sack, three hits, one hurry and a forced fumble.
