TCU’s last minute field goal returns Kansas Rally – NBC 5 Dallas-Fort Worth

Griffin Kell kicked a 25-yard field goal with 11 seconds to play as TCU battled out of a Kansas rally in the fourth quarter to beat the Jayhawks 31-28 on Saturday.

Kansas trailed 28-14 early in the fourth quarter before Jalon Daniels threw 28-yard touchdown passes to Luke Grimm and 10 yards to Jared Casey, the unlikely overtime hero in the Jayhawks’ win last week in Texas, which got a 56-game Big 12th losing streak.

Max Duggan ran after a touchdown, passing 166 yards in his first game since October for the Horned Frogs (5-6, 3-5 Big 12). Duggan, who missed TCU’s two previous games with a foot injury, put the result up with a 42-yard sprint down the left sideline to 2.

Kansas (2-9, 1-7 Big 12) sought to win consecutive conference matches for the first time since 2008.

Casey caught a 10-yard touchdown pass that was lifted over the middle with 4:46 left, and PAT equalized to 28. Casey, the walk-on who scored last week’s winning 2-point conversion, caught three passes to 26 yards .

TCU also scored on a 43-yard reverse by receiver Derius Davis in the first period, a 56-yard run by Kendre Miller in the second quarter and a 1-yard run by Amari Demercado early in the fourth.

Miller, who missed last week’s game with injured ribs, ran in 112 yards, 100 in the second half.

Kansas quarterback Jalon Daniels ran after a 14-yard touchdown in the first quarter and threw a 28-yard touchdown pass to Luke Grimm in the fourth quarter.

The Jayhawks led 14-7 early in the second quarter after Daniels’ scoring run and a 2-yard burst by driving back Devin Neal 2 1/2 minutes inside the second period.

Neal, the rookie who leads Kansas’ race, did not return after being shaken late in the first half. He won 59 yards after rushing by 145 last week in Texas.

Daniels, a sophomore, started his second start after junior Jason Bean suffered a hand injury. Bean played a few snaps Saturday as a running back.
