TCU was a great team and was a few missed field goals away from making it to a BCS game and the first from a non-automatic league with one loss. In that Utah game, TCU had their defense slowing down the Utes and while TCU made their points in the first quarter the defense made it last, almost.
TCU missed two late field goals, and a then missed out on a third field goal because of two straight sacks that were given up. Then on Utah’s final drive TCU basically gave the ole to Brian Johnson and the Ute offense and just drove down the field at will and ended up winning the game.
TCU then finished the season strong and played a great team in Boise State in the Poinsettia Bowl which put the No. 9 and No. 11 ranked teams in one of the best bowl games of the season. TCU ended up winning that game and essentially dominating after a very poor first quarter.
Overall TCU had a great year at 11-2 and finished with their highest ranking at No. 9 since they finished at No. 11 in 2005.
Up Next…Utah Utes
