TCU hoping to avoid another strange trip to Lubbock

(Continued)

FORT WORTH, Texas —

Patterson and the Horned Frogs had already avenged that 10-touchdown assault.

“Honestly, it meant enough to me I worked on it for two years,” said Patterson, whose team held the Red Raiders without a touchdown in a 12-3 victory in 2006.

“I think you will always see that this game will be a very high emotional game,” he said.

While Cumbie is on the staff of first-year coach Kliff Kingsbury, another former Red Raiders quarterback, they have a true freshman walk-on in Baker Mayfield. He has thrown for 780 yards with seven touchdowns and no interceptions, and also is the team’s leading rusher with 82 yards and a score on 21 carries.

Texas Tech has already scored 102 points.

The Horned Frogs have dual-threat Trevone Boykin as their starting quarterback again after Casey Pachall broke a bone in his left (non-throwing) arm in last week’s 38-17 victory over Southeastern Louisiana. Pachall had surgery and is out indefinitely.

Boykin threw for 332 yards and four TDs last season against the Red Raiders, who got seven TD passes from Seth Doege in TCU’s highest-scoring home game ever. The Red Raiders got a 47-yard TD run from Kenny Williams with 4 minutes left in regulation, before Boykin threw a 60-yard TD pass to LaDarius Brown and Jaden Oberkrom kicked a tying 42-yard field goal.

“Three of the scores came in the overtimes. They scored one touchdown where I was bringing it all out, and the guy broke loose and ran for about a 40-yard run,” Patterson said. “Then we came back and we made some plays. Still, you got beat 56-53.”
