offensive snap after halftime and the Horned Frogs got bowl
eligible with a 31-24 victory over Oklahoma State on Saturday

Horned Frogs (6-6, 4-5 Big 12), who will go to a bowl for the
16th time in Gary Patterson’s 18 seasons as head coach after
winning three of their last four games. It will be their 19th
bowl in the last 21 seasons overall, including Patterson’s three
years as TCU’s defensive coordinator for Dennis Franchione.
Oklahoma State (6-6, 3-6) had only 58 total yards after

third TCU player with a 1,000-yard receiving season (1,061).
