​TCU looks like the team to beat

The Horned Frogs offense seems to have ousted the offensive jitters they suffered from last season. The Horned Frogs scored for the 308th consecutive game — the second-longest current streak and fourth all-time in NCAA history. The Horned Frogs haven’t failed to score since Nov. 16, 1991 at Texas (32-0).

Accolades are due to senior Kenny Hill, who seems to have convinced his receivers to invest in some Stickum’. Hill is completing 72.2% of his passes (an improvement of 65.3% in the first two games last season), spreading the field for 13 receivers that caught throws for 10 yards or more.

Trevone Boykin… somewhere.

The interception count is enough to raise an eyebrow (2), but is a slight improvement over last year’s three during the same span.

I’d love to see the web-toed boots.

​Kirk saving Aggies, one reception at a time

A&M has been less than impressive in coach Kevin Sumlin’s likely swan song with College Station. A bright spot: receiver Christian Kirk is doing work, hauling in his 17th career reception on the first drive of the 24-14 Nicholls win. The scoring catch moved him into sixth all-time receiving TDs.

The 27-yarder put Kirk over the 2,000-yard marker in career receiving yards, the seventh Aggie to surpass that number. Later in the game, Kirk became the fourth player in school history to reach 170 catches; he needs three more to surpass Terrence Murphy as third most all-time.

Sumlin is definitely a Hufflepuff.

​Roadrunners defense too much for Baylor to Bear

Once a footnote in the University of Texas football landscape, UTSA may finish with a better record than UT after a convincing 17-10 victory against Baylor — their first ever win of a Power 5 conference school. The defense put on a show, limiting Baylor to 274 yards of total offense and restricting the Bears to their lowest point total since 2010. The Roadrunners also posted 10 tackles for loss and four sacks.

The Roadrunners continue a defensive streak that has limited their last three opponents to less than 300 yards of offense.

With a comparatively easier schedule than their FBS counterparts, UTSA is worth keeping an eye on through this coming season.

​Chaps star shines in UT debut

Westlake stud Sam Ehlinger finally was given his start with the Longhorns, coming away with a convincing 56-0 shutout of San Jose State. The true freshman completed 15-of-27 passes for 222 yards and one touchdown, while adding seven carries for 48 yards on the ground.

Ehlinger’s legend started his junior year en route to a Class 6A Division I state title appearance, in which he racked up 3,833 yards and 50 scores through the air and another 1,360 yards and 20 touchdowns on foot. Last season didn’t go quite as planned: a multitude of injuries limited Ehlinger to only five games of action.

The Austin native has dreamt about the starting opportunity since he watched Vince Young beat USC in the 2005 National Championship. This Saturday, he may have a chance to make such fantasies come to fruition; the Longhorns take on the Spartans for the first time since the title match and starting duties haven’t been handed back to quarterback Shane Buechele.

Never forget this pic.
