  Trevone Boykin threw for 261 yards and four touchdowns, all those scores coming on third-down plays, and TCU won 49-21 at Baylor on Saturday night to end the Bears' nine-game home winning streak.

Boykin, the redshirt freshman who completed 22 of 30 passes without a turnover, added 56 yards rushing with a late 3-yard TD for the Horned Frogs (5-1, 2-1 Big 12) in his second start.

The Horned Frogs took advantage of six turnovers by Baylor (3-2, 0-2). That included four interceptions by Nick Florence, who had TD passes of 74 and 77 yards to Terrance Williams.

Baylor's home winning streak had included a wild season-opening 50-48 victory over the Frogs last year, months before TCU joined the Bears in the Big 12. This was the first game between the teams only about 100 miles apart since 1995, the last year of the Southwest Conference.

Boykin had a full week to prepare to start this game. He threw three interceptions in his first start, a loss at Iowa State a week earlier when he had been working at tailback beforeCasey Pachall's arrest on suspicion of drunken driving only two days before the game.

Pachall, the second-year starting quarterback, has since withdrawn from school and entered an inpatient treatment program.

Florence succeeded Heisman Trophy winner Robert Griffin III and entered the game leading the nation in total offense (435 yards a game). He threw his 74-yard pass to Williams on the second play of the game, but the next two possessions ended with interceptions.
