Jared Wiley is TCU's big tight end, and twice, he got wide open in the middle of the field for touchdowns against Baylor. Wiley caught seven passes for 178 yards with catch-and-run scores of 81 and 28 yards, and Emani Bailey added two long touchdown runs as the Horned Frogs snapped a three-game losing streak with a 42-17 victory over their instate rival Saturday.
TCU, last year's national runner-up, now has a chance to finally get bowl-eligible in its regular-season finale next Friday at 14th-ranked Oklahoma.
The Frogs got even on Bailey’s 27-yard TD run in the second quarter and went ahead to stay when Hoover hit Wiley in stride alone down the seam near the TCU 40, and the 260-pound tight end went untouched to the end zone on the 81-yard score. And once he caught the ball, receiver Savion Williams had a downfield block against the only defender that had a shot at getting Wiley.

When the Southwest Conference folded after the 1995 season, the TCU Horned Frogs football program was written off for dead. From 1960 through 1997, TCU qualified for just three minor bowl berths. Attendance was puny, and losing was the tradition. But when Dennis Franchione arrived in 1998, everything changed. In three seasons, Franchione led the Horned Frogs to three bowls and a 10-win season.
When Franchione departed, it was feared that he would take all of that success with him. Franchione’s top assistant, Gary Patterson, took over. Following a 6-6 rookie season, Patterson became the greatest coach in TCU history. TCU was so successful under Patterson that it graduated within eight years from Conference USA to the Mountain West to the Big 12 Conference. Patterson finished 181-79 with six conference championships.
Sonny Dykes took the program that Franchione and Patterson built to the next level in 2022 with a spot in the national championship game.
