No. 3 TCU 40, SDSU 35
A win is a win -- except when it isn't. TCU remains undefeated after outlasting San Diego State, 40-35, but the Horned Frogs could suffer in the polls for failing to pile up style points. TCU had soared up the charts on the strength of its defense, and though the Horned Frogs held the Aztecs to just seven first downs, they allowed three touchdowns in the final 16 minutes. TCU is off in Week 12 before closing out its regular season against New Mexico in Week 13.
