TCU 67, Stephen F.Austin 7

Associated Press

FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) -- Joseph Turner ran for three touchdowns as TCU scored on its first five possessions on the way to a 67-6 victory over Stephen F. Austin on Saturday night in its highest-scoring game in 76 years.

Turner had a 12-yard TD run and two 4-yard scores for the Frogs (2-0), whose 67 points were one short of the school record set against Austin College in 1932. TCU led 42-7 at halftime in its home opener.

Stephen F. Austin (1-1) was held to only 143 total yards, including three yards on 17 rushing attempts.

In its home opener seven years ago against Northwestern State, another team from the lower-tier Football Championship Subdivision, TCU was upset 27-24 in overtime. The Frogs weren't going to let that happen again.

Andy Dalton was 11 of 13 passing for 131 yards and ran for an 11-yard TD. He completed all eight of his passes on TCU's first four scoring drives.

TCU rolled up 525 total yards, 320 on the ground, led by Ryan Christian's 67 yards on 11 carries.
