TCU Vs. Air Force Final Score: Horned Frogs Defeat Falcons, 35-19

Late in the third quarter, Air Force Falcons head coach Troy Calhoun decided to sit starting quarterback Tim Jefferson, though it was not over an injury. Connor Dietz took control of the offense and led the Falcons to two scoring plays, but the Falcons still fell to the TCU Horned Frogs, 35-19.

Parker Herrington kicked a 22-yard field goal early in the fourth quarter, but it took until the final seconds of the game for another touchdown. Connor Dietz converted a 3rd-and-4 by finding Ty MacCurthur for 19 yards. He immediately followed with a 33-yard pass to Drew Coleman. Dietz then picked up four yards on two plays, scoring a touchdown on a one-yard run.

Air Force's offensive highlight of the game was a reverse to wide receiver Jonathan Warzeka, who then passed it to Zack Kauth for a 32-yard touchdown in the third quarter.

TCU showed no lasting effects from their 50-48 loss to the Baylor Bears last week. Sophomore Casey Pachall completed his first 11 passes and finished 20-of-25 for 206 yards and two touchdowns. Running back Matthew Tucker was impressive during the game, escaping tackles and bowling over defenders. He had 16 rushes for 95 yards and two rushing touchdowns.

Next week, TCU returns home for a game against Louisiana-Monroe. Air Force takes next weekend off before facing Tennessee State.

TCU Vs. Air Force: Casey Pachall Has Horned Frogs in 21-3 Lead Over Falcons

The TCU Horned Frogs appear to have shrugged off their 50-48 loss to the Baylor Bears last week by coming out with a 21-3 halftime lead over the Air Force Falcons. Quarterback Casey Pachall has impressed everyone and just picked apart the Falcons' secondary. He is 16-of-18 for 174 yards and one touchdown.

The Horned Frogs scored their third touchdown on an eight-play, 80-yard drive. Pachall had his first incompletion on the drive (after 10 straight good ones), but that didn't deter him. A 21-yard pass to Antoine Hicks, combined with an unnecessary roughness penalty, on 3rd-and-8 at their own 40-yard line sent them to Air Force's 24-yard line. Two more passes for a total of 21 yards put the Horned Frogs on the three-yard line. Matthew Tucker rushed in for his second touchdown of the game.

Falcons coach Troy Calhoun needs to find some adjustments at halftime or risk letting this game getting further out of hand. The Falcons did show some signs of life just before halftime. Jamil Cooks sacked Pachall and stripped the ball away. Air Force recovered and kicked a field goal.

TCU vs. Air Force: Tanner Brock, Ed Wesley Are Out Against Air Force

It was reported early today that TCU could be without two starters in running back Ed Wesley and linebacker Tanner Brock because the two players aggravated prior injuries in the Baylor game. Now it is being reported by the Fort Worth Star-Telegram that Wesley and Brock did not make the trip to Colorado Springs. This could potentially be a big blow for TCU, because they will be down to only two healthy backs in Matthew Tucker and Waymon James due to Aundre Dean also is not making the trip because of an ankle injury.

The replacement for Tanner Brock looks to be senior Kris Gardner who has played in every game the past two years for TCU as a backup. In the Baylor game Gardner recorded four tackles. We will find out early how the TCU defense handles the Air Force run option attack since the Horned Frogs will be missing their best defensive player.
