Trevone Boykin has passed for 3,021 yards and 24 touchdown passes this season.
Austin, TX (SportsNetwork.com) -
The sixth-ranked TCU Horned Frogs come calling on the Texas Longhorns in a pivotal Big 12 Conference showdown on Thanksgiving night. It is the penultimate game of the 2014 season for TCU, which will host Iowa State on Dec. 6 to close things out. The Frogs come into this fray at 9-1 overall, and their 6-1 league ledger has them in a three-way tie atop the Big 12 standings, along with Baylor and Kansas State. Charlie Strong's first season in charge of the Texas football team hasn't quite gone according to plan, as the team is 6-5 overall, 5-3 in conference.
Texas owns a commanding 62-21-1 lead in the all-time series with TCU, which only recently joined the Big 12 Conference. The Longhorns won last year's tussle, 30-7. The Horned Frogs won at Texas in 2012, snapping a 15-game losing streak in Austin that dated back to 1969.
