PROVO, Utah -- The chants of “Gary! Gary!” started to rain down from the smattering of TCU fans with about 8 minutes remaining in TCU’s win over BYU.
The cheers were for TCU coach Gary Patterson, who’s team handled its biggest test of the season to remain undefeated and in the hunt for its first-ever BCS bowl berth.
It was also a cheer for Patterson, who has figured out BYU the past two seasons, dominated them and essentially ended their seasons.
BYU was never in this game. From the opening kick TCU looked like it was better prepared and it wanted it more. While BYU did get some thing going on offense throughout the game, penalties and turnover stunted any chance of mounting a comeback.
