TCU Horned Frogs lead Ohio State Buckeyes 14-13 at halftime

This game also is the final one in Buckeyes head coach Urban Meyer's three-game ban. When All-American defensive end Nick Bosa, whose strip-sack resulted in Ohio State's first touchdown, left with an injury, it looked like this just might not be the Buckeyes' night.

Bosa returned to the sidelines in sweatpants in the third quarter, ruled out for the rest of the game.

TCU had contained Bosa well for much of the first half. Parris Campbell, a person no one would not wish to chase, caught Dwayne Haskins's screen and traveled the 63 yards faster than would most. TCU led Ohio State 14-13.

This game technically is being played at a neutral site, AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Tx., but obviously this venue is a short trip from TCU and a very long one from OH, so the Horned Frogs should have a substantial home crowd advantage.

In the same quarter, Haskins would toss to K.J. Hill in the end zone to bring the game 33-21.

TCU scored put points on the board towards the end of the first quarter. The Frogs open conference play at Texas on Saturday, followed by a home game against Iowa State. What did we learn about the Buckeyes and the Horned Frogs? Each side missed a field goal from inside 40 yards. It became a pivotal part of the Frogs' seven-play, 84-yard touchdown trip, which ended with Sewo Olonilua's six-yard touchdown run, also on third down.

The Buckeyes work to close the gap as placekicker Sean Nuernberger kicked a 30 yard field goal.

They face No. 15 TCU and coach Gary Patterson's 4-2-5 defense.
