TCU holds Kansas to fewest single game total yards in Big 12 history

The TCU Horned Frog defense made history on Saturday.

They held the Kansas Jayhawks to just 21 yards, 23 short of the previous lowest single game total yardage in Big 12 history.

It’s also the fewest yards for any FBS team in the past 20 seasons.

Kansas has long struggled in the Big 12, but it’s still a huge win for the Horned Frogs, who are finally playing defense the way Gary Patterson wants them to.

Patterson is a defensive coach in an offensive league, and he’s not happy with only giving up 28-35 points a game. He wants the old school wins, he wants to limit you to 10-14. Against Kansas, the Frogs pitched a complete shutout of Kansas, who didn’t get into positive yardage until the second half.

TCU held Kansas to negative 25 yards on 31 carries for an average of negative .8 yards per carry. Kansas was forced to break into positive total yardage through the air, where they only gained 46 passing yards.
