Two-point conversion lifts TCU over West Virginia

MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — Corey Fuller caught a 25-yard touchdown pass and Trevone Boykin threw to Josh Boyce for the 2-point conversion, lifting TCU to a 39-38 double overtime win over No. 23 West Virginia on Saturday night.

TCU (6-3, 3-3 Big 12) got the victory after West Virginia (5-3, 2-3) went ahead on Geno Smith’s 25-yard TD pass to Stedman Bailey.

On TCU’s possession, Boykin handed off to B.J. Catalon and he pitched to Brandon Carter, who threw to Fuller in the end zone.

Boyce then caught the 2-point conversion, which was upheld after review, setting off a celebration on the TCU sideline.

TCU rallied from 10 points down in regulation. Boykin and Boyce teamed up on a 96-yard TD pass play with 1:28 left to tie the score at 31-31.

Neither team scored in the first overtime.

In becoming bowl eligible, TCU snapped a two-game losing streak, while West Virginia has lost three straight for the first time since the end of the 2004 season and has lost two straight at home for the first time since 2003.

Smith finished with three touchdown passes, including two in the second quarter. But West Virginia was limited to 126 yards after halftime.

Tavon Austin scored two touchdowns for the Mountaineers, giving his team a lift with a 76-yard punt return for a score with 3:19 left for a 31-24 lead.

All the beleaguered West Virginia defense had to do after that was stop TCU deep in Horned Frogs territory.

Boykin was sacked on first down. After scrambling on the next play, he found Boyce, who was wide open and went untouched into the end zone to force overtime. Boykin finished 12 of 29 for 254 yards and two scores.

Texas 31, No. 20 Texas Tech 22: David Ash threw for three touchdowns and 264 yards to lead Texas to a 31-22 victory against No. 20 Texas Tech on Saturday.

Mike Davis had a career-high 165 yards and a career-best two touchdowns on four catches, one a 75-yarder from Ash in the second quarter for the Longhorns (7-2, 4-2 Big 12). It was the third straight win for the Longhorns and keeps them alive in the Big 12 race.
