Jim Wacker, TCU's coach, has said his team will play "smash-mouth football," and for now Fort Worth is believing him. After routing Utah State 62-18 two weeks ago, the Horned Frogs beat Kansas State 42-10 as veerback Kenneth Davis rushed for 239 yards. The 2-0 start is the Frogs' best since 1972, and has TCU fans dreaming. With 10 minutes left against Kansas State, toe. Frogs' home crowd began chanting, "We want SMU." The Mustangs, who won a lackluster 24-6 game over North Texas State, host TCU this week in Texas Stadium.

Jackie Sherrill sure Stump-ed 'em. Texas A&M quarterback Kevin Murray was struggling, and the Aggies were leading Iowa State only 17-10 in the fourth quarter, when Sherrill called upon freshman Craig Stump, a redshirt last season. A&M thereupon clicked on six straight third-down plays, and Stump moved the team to TDs on his first two drives. Final score: A&M 38, State 17.
