No. 3 TCU Blasts No. 5 Utah 47-7

TCU v Utah

SALT LAKE CITY (AP) – Andy Dalton passed for a career-high 355 yards and three touchdowns and No. 4 TCU looked every bit like a team worthy of busting into the BCS championship game with a 47-7 demolition of No. 6 Utah on Saturday.

Receiver Jeremy Kerley, a QB in high school, threw a TD pass as the Horned Frogs (10-0, 6-0 Mountain West Conference) jumped out to an early 20-0 lead, quieting a sellout crowd clad almost entirely in black for the “blackout” showdown.

By halftime, the Horned Frogs had outgained Utah 328-72 en route to a 23-0 lead. The loss snapped Utah’s 21-game home winning streak and dropped the Utes to 8-1 (5-1 MWC).

Dalton, whose 39 career victories are the most in the nation by an active quarterback, made it look easy.
