No. 4 TCU routs UT, 50-7

TCU running back Aaron Green (22) avoids Texas defensive end Charles Omenihu (90) and cornerback Duke Thomas (21)

Trevone Boykin threw five touchdown passes, including four to freshman KaVontae Turpin, and No. 4 TCU rode a 30-point first quarter to a 50-7 rout of Texas on Saturday.

Josh Doctson broke the TCU record for receiving TDs with a pair of scores as the Horned Frogs (5-0, 2-0 Big 12) won their 13th straight game, second nationally to defending champion Ohio State, which took a 17-game streak into its game at Indiana.

The Longhorns (1-4, 0-2), plagued by special teams mistakes for the third straight game, scored a late touchdown to avoid matching the second-worst shutout loss in school history - 50-0 to Oklahoma 107 years ago. They are off to their worst start since going 1-9 in 1956.

TCU beat Texas in consecutive years for the first time since 1958-59, outscoring the Longhorns 98-17.
