The 25th-ranked TCU Horned Frogs brushed off their Baylor blues and routed Air Force 35-19 Saturday for their 18th straight win in the Mountain West Conference.
The Horned Frogs (1-1) were efficient in bouncing back from their stunning 50-48 loss at Baylor last week that ended their BCS-best 25-game regular-season winning streak.
And they did it without their star running back and top tackler, as tailback Ed Wesley (shoulder) and linebacker Tanner Brock (foot) didn't make the trip after aggravating existing injuries in the Frogs' opener.
Former Chapel Hill Bulldog Matthew Tucker ran for 2 touchdowns.
Former Whitehouse Wildcat Luke Shivers caught a 3 yard pass for another touchdown.
