On the opening kickoff, the Pokes pin TCU back at their own 5 yardline. After three failed fade routes, TCU attempts to punt it out of their own end zone but the snap sails over Sandy's head for a safety. In the ensuing next seventeen possessions, there are seventeen turnovers before the end of the 3rd quarter. The BigXII refs decide to allow both teams to staple a ball to their respective running backs' hands. Frogs drive down to the Pokes' 1 yard line, then in a desperate move, they throw Demarcado over the crossbar for a field goal to seal the victory.
