Horned Frogs win in battle of the backup quarterbacks

Bram Kohlhausen’s eight-yard touchdown run in the third overtime Saturday night in San Antonio carried number 11 TCU to a wild 47-41 victory over Number 15 Oregon in the Alamo Bowl.

The Horned Frogs’ 31-point comeback in the second half tied the record for a bowl game, matching Texas Tech in the 2006 Insight Bowl against Minnesota.
