TCU rallies to down Louisiana Tech in Poinsettia Bowl


San Diego, CA (Sports Network) - TCU improved to 4-0 in red-flowered bowl games over the past six years, but not without Louisiana Tech giving the 16th- ranked Bulldogs a run for their money in Wednesday's Poinsettia Bowl.

The heavily-favored Horned Frogs, last year's Rose Bowl champion and winner of the 2006 and '08 Poinsettia Bowls, trailed in the fourth quarter before pulling out a 31-24 win to end their final season before moving to the Big 12.

Casey Pachall threw the game-winning 42-yard touchdown pass to Skye Dawson with 4:26 remaining, easily the sophomore's biggest throw in an otherwise modest 206-yard performance. continue>>
