Individual Notes
*Savion Williams had a career-best game with 11 receptions for 164 yards, including a 14-yard touchdown, for his first 100-yard effort. His seven first-half receptions surpassed his previous high of six catches against BYU earlier this season.

*Williams’ 11 receptions were the most by a Horned Frog since Quentin Johnston had 14 at Kansas last season. The 164 yards were the highest total since Johnston’s 180 against Oklahoma State in 2022.
*Emani Bailey’s 98 yards rushing, including a 17-yard touchdown, on 21 carries gave him 1,006 yards on the season.

*Josh Hoover completed 24-of-36 passes for 302 yards and two touchdowns, his third 300-yard game in four career starts.

*Wiley had a career-best six receptions, including a 46-yard grab to mark a second straight game with his longest catch as a Horned Frog. His career long is 52 yards against TCU while playing for Texas in 2020.
*JP Richardson had three receptions, including a 3-yard touchdown on a 4th-and-goal, to give him at least one catch in his last 25 games for the longest active streak on the team.
*Jamoi Hodge had a team-best 11 tackles, the second-best game of his career behind only the 13 stops he had in last year’s win at West Virginia.
*Abe Camara tied a career high with eight tackles, including one for loss.
*Millard Bradford had his second interception of the season, tying Bud Clark for the team lead. 
*Bradford’s picks have come in each of the last two home games. He has four career interceptions.
*Rick D’Abreu recorded a tackle for loss to give him 4.5 on the season.
*Tymon Mitchell had a tackle for no gain on a 4th-and-1 Texas rush. He had two stops in the contest.
Special Teams
*Griffin Kell’s 41- and 56-yard field goals gave him 59 in his career, moving him into sole possession of third place on TCU’s career list.
*The 56-yard field goal was 1 yard shy of tying the school record of 57 he shares with Jaden Oberkrom (2015) and Michael Reeder (1996). Kell’s 57-yard make came earlier this season against Nicholls.
*Kell’s field goals give him 13 on the season. He is donating $20 to Fort Worth’s Hope Center for Autism for every made kick. With his 13 field goals, he’s at $260.
*Jordy Sandy had two punts inside the 20. He is donating $20 to Fort Worth’s Hope Center for Autism for each punt inside the 20. He has 10 this season and is at $200 in donations.
