INSTANT REACTION: TCU stiff-arms Bears, 16-9
TCU wide receiver Jalen Reagor only touched the ball six times on Saturday, but it was enough to swing the game to the Horned Frogs.
Reagor scored on a 65-yard pass from backup quarterback Grayson Muehlstein in the first half. And then Reagor took a reverse handoff 37 yards to the house in the third quarter, lifting TCU to a 16-9 victory over Baylor at McLane Stadium.
It looked, from midway through the second half, that the Jalen that made more plays — TCU’s Reagor or Baylor’s Jalen Hurd — would walk off the field with the win.
That’s how it turned out as Reagor caught 4 passes for 86 yards and the first-half TD and added 32 rushing yards.
However, don’t overlook TCU’s defense, which clamped down on Baylor quarterback Charlie Brewer. The Horned Frogs frustrated Brewer all day, keeping him to 14 of 29 passing for 163 yards, no touchdowns and an interception.
Baylor managed just 303 yards of total offense and was held to less than 10 points for the first time this season.
