FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) — Gary Patterson has plenty of reasons to shake his head this season. The TCU coach has been constantly plugging in different players on defense to do enough to back a high-powered offense.
Still, what matters for the fourth-ranked and playoff-hopeful Horned Frogs is that they are still undefeated.
The 4-0 Frogs are back home Saturday to play Texas, which is 1-3 for the first since 1956 after losing consecutive home games with late breakdowns on special teams.
A missed extra point with 71 seconds left cost Texas a chance to take California to overtime two weeks ago. Then a dropped punt snap set up Oklahoma State for the winning field goal in the final seconds as the Longhorns lost their Big 12 opener at home last week.
