LUBBOCK, Texas (AP) - Aaron Green caught a tipped pass in the back of the end zone with 23 seconds left and No. 3 TCU outlasted Texas Tech 55-52 on Saturday in the Big 12 opener for both teams.

On fourth-and-goal from the 4, Trevone Boykin's pass was high to Josh Doctson, but he got a hand on it and Green grabbed the ball as he fell out of the end zone. A video review confirmed Green had control of the ball and got a foot in bounds.

Boykin threw for four touchdowns and a career-high 509 yards for TCU (4-0, 1-0). Doctson caught three touchdown passes and finished with 267 yards on 18 catches - all career highs.

Green rushed for one touchdown, and the Horned Frogs got a safety in the first quarter after the snap went over Texas Tech quarterback Patrick Mahomes.

Mahomes, who was injured in the first quarter, completed 25 of 45 passes for 392 yards. He threw for two touchdowns and ran for another score for the Red Raiders (3-1, 0-1).
