TCU's Andy Dalton sets another mark
By Jeff Caplan
The records keep falling for TCU quarterback Andy Dalton.
The senior's 39-yard fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Jimmy Young gave him a new TCU-record 50 scoring tosses in his career, breaking the Horned Frogs' previous mark of 49 (Max Knake, 1992-95). Dalton and the No. 5 Frogs blanked Colorado State on Saturday, 27-0.
Dalton is already the school's all-time leader in wins as well as holding numerous other career marks.
*The 27-0 win gave Gary Patterson his first road shutout in his 10 seasons as TCU head coach. The previous six shutouts under Patterson came in home games. TCU's last road shutout was a 24-0 win at Navy on Sept. 30, 2000, when Patterson was the Horned Frogs' defensive coordinator under Dennis Franchione.
