Oh, right, at K-State! A native Kansan, Patterson grew up in Rozel, started his college career at Dodge City Community College, and played linebacker for the Cats in the 1980 and ’81 seasons. He stayed on as a GA during the ’82 Independence Bowl season at K-State. That experience was his only major conference coaching until TCU joined the Big 12 in 2012. When Patterson took over at TCU he was coming off a long career of assistant coaching spots in relatively small schools until he took over as defensive coordinator at TCU in 1998, and then was promoted to head coach in 2000 when Dennis Franchione left to take the job at Alabama. Before joining the Big 12 Gary Patterson led TCU to a Conference-USA championship in 2002 and 4 Mountain West titles. He led the 2011 team all the way to a Rose Bowl Victory over Wisconsin. In 2008 it was reported that he had agreed on a deal to come to K-State as the head coach following the Ron Prince fiasco. Ultimately that didn’t happen, but it seems that K-State has manged to find some success with the guy they did hire. In his spare time he plays the guitar. No really. You can catch him performing in the off season. Horned Frogs Offense Passing yds/game Rushing yds/game Total Offense yds/game Scoring points/game Time of Possession TCU Offense 396.4 (4th) 233.60 (17th) 630.0 (2nd) 50.8 (2nd) 32:03 (32nd) KSU Defense 288.0 (118th) 71.0 (3rd) 359.0 (51st) 18.0 (25th) 32:36 (20th) (FBS Rankings) #9 Senior Wide Receiver Josh Doctson, who did not receive a penalty for saluting in last year’s Peach Bowl. Yeah, you remember Boykin Holy hell. do you remember his stat line from last year against K-State? I hate to do this, but here’s the reminder: 23/34 for 219 yards and a TD in the air, and 17 carries for 123 yards and 3 TDs on the ground. For all the talk that TCU may not have it this year, that talk seems to be greatly exaggerated. Boykin has thrown for 19 TDs already this season. 19 TDs in 5 games. The good news? He’s only rushed for 2. So how do you stop him? Well, he’s only been sacked 4 times and thrown 3 interceptions. So with the secondary issues that K-State has right now… well… The other Heisman candidate1 A good season for a college wide receiver is 1000 yards. That’s the benchmark. Senior Josh Doctson hit that mark a year ago. Think he’ll do it again in 2015? He could potentially be within a couple weeks of it happening already. He’s got 722 yards on the season, and has been on the receiving end of 8 of Boykin’s 19 TD passes. During the game against Texas last week the announcers pointed out that TCU could split Heisman votes between Boykin and Doctson. And that run game… Aside from their freaky reverses, K-State didn’t have to worry much about stopping Oklahoma State’s run game last week. Which is a shame, because the Cats have been really solid up front. That changes this week with TCU. Not only do you have the always scary run threat of Boykin, Aaron Green is back, and just as scary as he was a year ago when he rushed for 171 yards and a TD against K-State. Texas’s strong front held him to 70 yards on 14 carries last week, but with as many ways as TCU has to hurt you, it wasn’t much help to them.

Austin Lumberjacks at Amon G. Carter Stadium. Mandatory Credit: Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports The depleted D While TCU’s offense may have pretty much everyone back from the national championship caliber 2014 team, the defense was another story. They only returned 5 starters this season. Then, once the depth charts were set, they lost another 4. Senior DT Davion Pierson just returned from his injury for the Texas game, and senior DE James McFarland is still out. Add into that another senior lineman, Mike Tuaua, who just returned from his suspension for beating up another TCU student and stealing his Keystone Light, and you have a giant mess on the offensive line. Their starting linebackers are also gone. Sammy Douglas is out for the year, and Mike Freeze left the team for personal reasons, which likely have nothing to do with Keystone Light. The 4-2-5 TCU’s defense has always been their calling card, but they were surrounded by questions after giving up 37 points to SMU and 52 to Texas Tech. They regained their mojo this week against Texas, though, holding the Longhorns to just 7 points. Their defense has long been about their front, and pushing the action to the safeties, who are there as much to contain the run as to work in coverage. K-State has struggled to do anything around the corner in the run game this season, and this won’t be the week they’re able to get that going. The freshman to watch With that depleted defense, some younger guys have had to step in. The most promising, and one to keep an eye on, is #20, true freshman Montrel Wilson. He came to TCU as a safety and has been pressed into service as a linebacker. After not getting any stats in the first game, he’s had 26 tackles in the 4 games since then, including 13 against Texas, including a sack. He’s fast, and has an innate sense for the ball.
