Brandon Carter's Big Day Helps TCU Win its Big 12 Debut

TCU came out on top of their first Big 12 test against Kansas 20-6. A big part of their success was the performance of sophomore wide receiver Brandon Carter.

The former Euless Trinity Trojan finished the day with eight catches for a a game high 141 yards and the game's only two touchdowns, as well as one rush for 14 yards.

This was Carter's second time to ever cross the century mark in yards. The eight receptions was also a career high for the sophomore.

In a day that may be remembered for TCU's shortcomings, Carter's timely touches helped secure the Frogs' momentum.

His first touchdown occurred shortly after Casey Pachall fumbled the ball in the red zone. After Sam Carter's interception gave TCU the ball back, Carter was able to wrestle an eight-yard Pachall bullet away from a defender for his first touchdown.

His biggest grabs came in third quarter. Pachall hit Carter for 33 yards on third down and then again for a 25-yard touchdown pass. Carter made a circus catch and narrowly stayed in bounds as he ran into the end zone.

Carter now has three touchdowns on the year. His only catch against Grambling State last week was a 21-yard grab for a touchdown.
