AUSTIN, Texas (AP) — Texas fought hard to get bowl-eligible in coach Charlie Strong’s first season. After a humiliating 48-10 home loss to No. 6 TCU, the Longhorns now have to fight just to avoid a losing season.

Trevone Boykin passed for two touchdowns and ran for another, and the Horned Frogs (10-1, 7-1 Big 12, No. 5 CFP) dominated the Longhorns in forcing six turnovers — five by quarterback Tyrone Swoopes.

Already up 20-3, TCU poured it on with a 28-point fourth quarter that was both a message to the College Football Playoff committee and a reminder to Texas (6-6, 5-4) that the Longhorns are a long way from returning to Big 12 title contender status.
