FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Trevone Boykin ran for 123 yards and three touchdowns and threw for another score, leading No. 6 TCU to a 41-20 victory over No. 9 Kansas State on Saturday night that had huge Big 12 title and playoff implications.
Aaron Green, filling in for injured B.J. Catalon, ran for 171 yards for the Horned Frogs (8-1, 5-1), including a 65-yard TD.
A week after Boykin apologized in the locker room after a one-point win at West Virginia for what he considered a subpar performance, the dual-threat quarterback set a career high for rushing yards and completed 23 of 34 passes for 219 yards.
The end of Kansas State's five-game winning streak created a three-way tie atop the Big 12 standings with the Wildcats (7-2, 5-1), TCU and No. 10 Baylor (8-1, 5-1).
In the College Football Playoff rankings, TCU is sixth, a spot ahead of Kansas State.
