FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) TCU coach Gary Patterson was getting frustrated with his linebackers during preseason practice when they had pursuit angles on Kenedy Snell, and then were unable to tackle the 5-foot-8 freshman running back.
"Now I saw why we didn't catch him," Patterson said. "He can really get up and go."
Snell turned a short pass into a 71-yard sprint untouched down the sideline against SMU for a touchdown in the last game for the 16th-ranked Horned Frogs (3-0). In that same game, receiver Jalen Reagor made a leaping catch in the end zone on the final play of the first half to put TCU ahead to stay.
