College Football Player of the Week: TCU QB Trevone Boykin
Trevone Boykin totaled 425 yards and four touchdowns in TCU's come-from-behind win over Kansas State.
If not for a fantastic performance from their Heisman-candidate quarterback, the TCU Horned Frogs likely would have suffered an unexpected loss on Saturday night against Kansas State.
Trevone Boykin threw for 301 yards, rushed for an additional 124 yards, and totaled four touchdowns as TCU was able to comeback from an 11-point deficit in the fourth quarter and avoid defeat in Manhattan, Kansas. The biggest touchdown was a 55-yard pass to Josh Doctson with 1:10 remaining in the game to give the Horned Frogs the lead for good.
That performance is why Boykin has been named the CBS Sports National Player of the Week.
In a season where LSU's Leonard Fournette has been dominating the early Heisman hype, it's easy to overlook the season Boykin's had thus far. Through six games, TCU's senior quarterback has thrown for 2,103 yards and 21 touchdowns. Only Baylor quarterback Seth Russell has thrown for more touchdowns this season.
Of course, Boykin has also added another 366 yards and four touchdowns in the running game, which is why he's tied for second nationally in total offense with 411.5 yards per game.
