Saturday’s game between No. 20 TCU and Metroplex rival SMU has been a wild one, with the two teams trading big plays throughout the first half. Gary Patterson’s team had the ball last and took full advantage, as quarterback Kenny Hill connected with wide receiver Jalen Reagor for a 38-yard Hail Mary to give the Horned Frogs a 28-22 lead at the half.

Reagor, who caught three passes for 79 yards and a touchdown in the first half, rose above the crowd of SMU defensive backs to haul in the pass.

Saturday’s game is a matchup of undefeated teams, with this being the first time that has occurred in the series since 1985.
