Bram Kohlhausen Postgame Interview
2016 Valero Alamo Bowl Trophy Ceremony
TCU's chance to win against Oregon fell to 0.9% before its 26-yard touchdown in the 3rd quarter to cut the deficit to 21. It was the fourth-most improbable win in the FBS this season (based on the lowest win probability in a game).
In his first career collegiate start as a senior after transferring to TCU, Bram Kohlhausen started off slow, completing 9-of-19 passes for 91 yards and an interception. In the second half, he found his rhythm, completing 19-of-26 passes for 255 yards and two touchdowns. That is more passing yards after halftime that Trevone Boykin ever had during his career. One difference in Kohlhausen's play in the second half was downfield passes.
Kohlhausen completed 6-of-7 third-and-fourth down attempts for 90 yards and a touchdown after halftime. He was 0-for-7 with an interception on such attempts in the first half.
Oregon led 28-0, when Vernon Adams exited the game in the second quarter with an injury. The Ducks scored a touchdowns on four of their seven drives with Adams at quarterback. They scored three points the rest of regulation after he left the game.
TCU won after trailing by 31 points:- It is tied for the largest comeback win in a bowl game in FBS history with the 2006 Insight Bowl in which Texas Tech defeated Minnesota. Since that game, FBS teams had lost 1,463 straight games when trailing by 31 points.
- It is tied for the second-largest comeback in an FBS game in college football history behind a 35-point comeback win by Michigan State in 2006 against Northwestern.
Before Vernon Adams left the Valero Alamo Bowl in the 2nd quarter with an injury, Oregon had piled up 342 total yards and 28 points.From the time of his departure through the end of regulation, the Ducks managed just 52 yards and 3 points.
After completing just 9-of-19 passes for 96 yards and an interception in the first half, TCU quarterback Bram Kohlhausen rebounded in a big way in the 2nd half.With the Horned Frogs down 31-0 at the break, Kohlhausen came back to complete 16-of-21 passes for 238 yards and a touchdown in the 2nd half, as well as running for his first career touchdown.
