FORT WORTH (AP) – TCU senior quarterback Andy Dalton recently stood alone at midfield of an empty stadium, pondering what the No. 4 Horned Frogs have accomplished in his career.

After finally breaking through into the BCS last season, TCU (11-0) is on the verge of its second consecutive undefeated regular season.

But even if the Frogs win Saturday at New Mexico, there could be a bitter ending for Dalton and a senior class with a school-record 42 wins.

The Frogs again could be undefeated without a chance to play for the national title. And this time, they could even get left out of the top five bowl games if Boise State passes them in the BCS standings.

Dalton, the winningest active BCS quarterback, says that’s nothing the Frogs can control.
