Five Frogs to watch
TCU is loaded with talent, but here are five players Gophers fans should fear:
1. Trevone Boykin, QB: Enters season as a leading Heisman Trophy candidate. Set school records for passing yards, total touchdowns and total offense last season.
2. Josh Doctson, WR: Set school records for receiving yards (1,018) and touchdown catches (11) last season. Two of those TDs came against the Gophers, including a leaping, one-handed grab in the end zone.
3. Kolby Listenbee, WR: A sprinter on TCU’s track and field team, he’s considered one of the fastest players in college football. He gives their offense a deep threat.
4. Davion Pierson, DT: Recorded four tackles and 1½ sacks against the Gophers last season. Was selected to the preseason All-Big 12 team.
5. Jaden Oberkrom, K: A four-year starter, he led all kickers nationally in scoring last season with 142 points. He has made 67.7 percent of his career kicks from 40-plus yards.
