No. 11 TCU tried to run out the clock after Stephen Hodge's interception, but after Andy Dalton dropped back and slid down on fourth-and-three, Boise State took over at its own 33 with 6 seconds to play.
On the first play, Kellen Moore threw 7 yards to Jeremy Childs, who tried a lateral -- no, not a hook-and-lateral -- but TCU defensive lineman Matt Panfil caught the pitch and secured the Poinsettia Bowl victory for the Horned Frogs, who finish 11-2.
The Frogs dominated the statistical battle. TCU had a 28-15 edge in first downs and outgained Boise State 475-255 in total yards, including 278-29 rushing. Aaron Brown ended his Frogs career with 105 yards rushing on 13 carries, including a 16-yard touchdown run with 24 seconds left in the first half. Andy Dalton was 22 of 35 passing for 197 yards.
