College Football Player of the Week: TCU WR Josh Doctson
TCU WR Josh Doctson had one of the best games by a receiver in the last 15 years against Texas Tech on Saturday.
TCU wide receiver Josh Doctson had one of the best performances by a wide receiver in recent history in the Horned Frogs' 55-52 win on the road against Texas Tech.
Doctson caught 18 passes for 267 yards and three touchdowns as the Horned Frogs were able to outlast the Red Raiders in a shootout that was one of the most entertaining games of the year.
Everything was going so well for Doctson that even a drop turned into the game-winning touchdown for TCU. The final score that put TCU up 55-52 with less than a minute to play was a pass intended for Doctson that he couldn't haul in, but bounced in the air where Aaron Green grabbed it in the back of the end zone.
Doctson's 267 receiving yards are the most since Tyler Lockett had 278 yards for Kansas State in 2013. His 18 catches were the most in a game since Tommy Shuler caught 18 for Marshall last year. Doctson is only the 18th player to catch 18 or more since 2000.
Funny enough, Doctson became the first TCU player to catch more than 10 passes in a game since current TCU quarterback Trevone Boykin caught 11 passes in a game back in 2013.
Saturday's performance put Doctson at the top of the nation's receiving yards list at 593 and he's now fourth in the country with 148.3 yards per game receiving.
