TCU holds on in wild finish



Posted by ESPN.com's Graham Watson


AIR FORCE ACADEMY --- Air Force made it interesting by forcing a fumble and scoring in the final minute, but TCU recovered an onside kick and sealed the 20-17 win.

The win likely will keep the Horned Frogs in the top 10 in the national rankings and within striking distance of Boise State, which was idle this week but still is ranked ahead of TCU.

Once again, the TCU defense kept it’s opponent in check. Air Force came in as the nation’s No. 2 rushing team and the TCU defense held it well below its average.
