SMU 42, TCU 34: The Skillet stays in Dallas

TCU Football has now lost two consecutive games to SMU for the first time since 1992-93. The ponies came to play today, stunning the Horned Frogs defense for a 42-34 win. Injuries, depth chart rearrangement, chemistry - there is no excuse for this kind of loss, especially after having an extra week of preparation with last Saturday’s bye week. You can blame Duggan for missing throws, you can blame GP for the atrocious defense, hell you can even blame the officiating if that’s your thing.

SMU quick hits: How the Mustangs nearly lost momentum in rivalry win over TCU

UNIVERSITY PARK — Momentum, especially in a rivalry game, can be hard to wrangle. In pursuit of that objective, SMU nearly lost it on Saturday.

Instead of three points and a lead, SMU quarterback Tanner Mordecai was hit as he threw and the ball was intercepted by Deshawn McCuin.

A Conversation with Chris Beard

In 2019, coach Chris Beard led the Texas Tech Red Raiders on a thrilling title run that culminated in a nail-biting overtime defeat in the championship game. A historic achievement in Lubbock, Beard was rewarded with AP National Coach of the Year honors and public recognition for his place among the college greats.
