Freshman QB 1st start in No. 11 TCU's 27-3 win at Texas Tech

Shawn Robinson became the first true freshman quarterback to start a game for No. 11 TCU in coach Gary Patterson's 17 seasons as head coach.

Even after a 27-3 win over Texas Tech that got the Horned Frogs closer to a spot in the Big 12 championship game, Patterson kept to his policy of not letting freshmen talk to the media after the game.

The victory speaks loud enough for Robinson and the Horned Frogs (9-2, 6-2 Big 12, No. 12 CFP).

"Our goal is for our seniors to have the best season they can have," Patterson said. "They have a chance to win 10, 11 or 12 ballgames, which is really cool."

With Oklahoma State and West Virginia both losing...
