West Virginia and TCU were tied at 24-24 late in the 4th quarter when Tavon Austin fielded a TCU punt and returned it 76 yards for a touchdown. But the porous Mountaineer defense gave up an incredible busted coverage when TCU's Trevone Boykin found Josh Boyce for 94 yards to tie things back up at 31-31 to set up overtime.
Both teams would miss chances to score in the first overtime. In the second overtime, it was Geno Smith who struck first on a 25 yard connection to Stedman Bailey, but then TCU responded almost right back on a reverse pass by wide receiver Brandon Carter to find Corey Fuller. The Horned Frogs would then go for two, and Boykin would find Josh Boyce on a quick pass to the right side to seal the victory.
