SAN DIEGO (AP) -- Joseph Turner ran for a career-high 226 yards and four touchdowns to lead TCU to a 45-33 win over San Diego State on Saturday night.
Turner helped the Horned Frogs (7-5, 4-4 Mountain West) overcome San Diego State's 17-0 first quarter lead. He scored his first touchdown on a 5-yard run late in the second quarter to give TCU its first lead of the game at 21-17.
Turner then added TD runs of 9, 14 and 41 yards in the third quarter as the Horned Frogs took a 42-27 lead.
