TCU Too Tough
Oct. 30, 2010
LAS VEGAS (AP) - TCU controlled the game defensively to stay undefeated with a 48-6 victory against UNLV on Saturday night.
TCU's Ed Wesley ran 64 yards on 13 carries with a touchdown and Andy Dalton finished 16 of 23 with no interceptions.
Clayton finished 15 of 29 for 128 yards and two interceptions. 1/4
TCU built a 28-6 halftime lead and it could have been even worse if Matthew Tucker had not fumbled at the UNLV 1 with 5:49 left in the half.
Kerley started the scoring with a 5-yard run around the left side with 9:31 left in the first quarter, followed by Wesley's 1-yard run up the middle on the first play of the second quarter to make it 14-0.
Safety Colin Jones intercepted Clayton's pass and ran it back for 30-yard touchdown one minute later. TCU has returned five of its last seven interceptions for touchdowns, dating back to last season.
Dalton had a 1-yard dive into the end zone with a minute until halftime.
Three plays into the second half, Dalton found Josh Boyce across the middle in stride for a 54-yard touchdown pass. It was the longest play from scrimmage this season and it extended Dalton's MWC record for consecutive games with a touchdown pass to 17.
Dalton hooked up with Kerley on a 24-yard touchdown pass early in the fourth quarter.
