Texas vs. TCU Score, Takeaways: The no. 4 Horned Frogs hold off 18 Longhorns in Big 12 title game.

No. 4 TCU used a strong defensive performance to make it 10 wins since 2017, beating No. Texas 17-10. 18 and clinch a spot in the Big 12 Championship Game on Saturday, Dec. 3. The matchup between the two offensive powers surprisingly turned into a defensive battle, but ultimately, TCU remains in the thick of the College Football Playoff conversation.

Texas held TCU to 11 tackles for loss in the first half, but running back Kendre Miller took over the game in the second half. Miller broke off a 75-yard touchdown run for the game’s first touchdown and racked up 130 yards rushing. Robinson was held to just 29 yards, snapping seven straight 100-yard performances.

Texas quarterback Quinn Evers completed 17 of 39 passes for 171 yards and an interception in another poor effort from his breakout game against Oklahoma. The Longhorns haven’t had an offensive touchdown since an Oct. 15 win over Iowa State. Texas tight end Ja’Daveon Sanders caught seven passes for 61 yards and Xavier Worthy threw for 78 yards, but neither got into the end zone.

TCU moves to 10-0 and has a chance to play for a conference title in its first season under coach Sonny Dykes. Prior to their first Big 12 Championship Game appearance since 2017, the Horned Frogs have regular season games against Baylor and Iowa State.
