Max Duggan would not be denied.
The freshman emerged as TCU’s top option at quarterback as the season has progressed, and he showed why with a remarkable touchdown run against Kansas State on Saturday.
With his team trailing 17-10 midway through the third quarter, Duggan reeled off a game-tying 46-yard touchdown run that will be all over the weekend highlight reels. Duggan faked to his running back, took off to the left, bounced off several defenders and delivered a lethal stiff-arm en route to the end zone.
The touchdown by Duggan tied the score at 17-17, but Kansas State went on to win the game, 24-17.
The Wildcats scored the winning touchdown, a three-yard run by QB Skylar Thompson, with 2:45 to play. Thompson’s touchdown capped off a 95-yard drive by Kansas State. The biggest play (other than the touchdown) was a 61-yard scamper by Thompson.
Kansas State improved to 4-2 with the win while TCU dropped to 3-3.
