AMES, Iowa (AP) -- Trevone Boykin scored on a 1-yard TD run with
38 seconds left and TCU rallied to beat Iowa State 21-17 on
Saturday and snap a three-game losing streak.
Boykin ran for three touchdowns for the Horned Frogs (4-6, 2-5
Big 12), who remain in contention for possible bowl eligibility
with two games left.
The Horned Frogs went 58 yards in just 1:56 - a drive keyed by a
22-yard run from Aaron Green on 4th-down-and-1 - and took a
four-point lead on their only score of the second half.
Grant Rohach threw for 148 yards for Iowa State (1-8, 0-6),
whose last-ditch effort ended near midfield. The Cyclones have
lost six straight.
Casey Pachall threw for 245 yards for TCU.
But he also nearly threw the game away midway through the fourth
Pachall drove TCU from its own 1-yard line to the Iowa State 23
with consecutive completions to Brandon Carter and LaDarius
Brown. But Jevohn Miller drilled Carter on a third-down play to
force out the ball, and Jeremiah George's interception kept the
Horned Frogs from a potential game-tying field goal.
Iowa State gave TCU one last chance at its own 42-yard line with
2:34 to go after a poor punt from Kirby Van Der Kamp.
With leading backs B.J. Catalon and Waymon James unavailable,
Green led the way for TCU.
Green's 22-yard run put the Horned Frogs at the Iowa State 27.
He later got them to the 3-yard line with a 17-yard run, setting
up Boykin's game-winner.
Green finished with 72 yards on 19 carries.
The Cyclones went into halftime trailing for the fourth game in
DeVondrick Nealy brought Iowa State even with one of the team's
biggest plays of the season.
Nealy broke a pair of tackles en route to a 98-yard kickoff
return - second-longest in school history - to open the second
That return sparked the Cyclones, who took their first lead in a
month, 17-14, on Cole Netten's 35-yard field goal late in the
But Iowa State finished with just 283 yards on 82 plays.
The Cyclones had a gusty wind at their backs to open the game -
and gained just 15 yards during four consecutive three-and-out
But Van Der Kamp gave the Cyclones a spark with a 25-yard
completion to Justin Coleman on a fake punt. Iowa State then put
in Richardson, and he took his first snap 15 yards to tie the
game at 7-7.
TCU answered immediately. A 33-yard completion from Pachall to
Carter was upheld after an Iowa State challenge, and Boykin's
second carry of the game resulted in his second TD, a 3-yarder
that made it 14-7 Horned Frogs with 9:51 left in the first half.
Boykin, who opened the scoring with an 18-yard TD run, also had
four catches for 24 yards as the Horned Frogs bounced back from
a brutal overtime loss to West Virginia with their first road
