Report: Darius Anderson will be a game-time decision against Stanford

“(Anderson) will be a gametime decision,” said Patterson. “Every day he gets better and he’s been running bags and doing things, but we’ll be very smart about that. You can’t accomplish any more in this season so you’ve got to make sure he’s ready to go and there’s no chance of putting him in harm’s way.”

Anderson has 768 yards on just 128 carries, rushing at a clip of six yards per carry. He’s also scored eight touchdowns on the ground, and is TCU’s leading rusher so far this season. Senior Kyle Hicks will have a chance to eclipse that mark during the bowl game, but rushing for 171 yards against Stanford will be a tall order.

Anderson, only a sophomore, has a bright future for the Horned Frogs. He’s the prototypical size for a spread running back at 5’11, 205 pounds, and catches the ball well out of the backfield in addition to his skills on the ground. He’s likely going to be the featured cog in the TCU offensive machine next year, as the Frogs will be dealing with youth at a lot of the skill positions.
