McDermott's 4th TD toss gives SMU 40-33 overtime upset of No. 20 TCU
FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) ' J.J. McDermott threw a 19-yard touchdown pass to Jeremy Johnson in overtime and SMU recovered from a fourth-quarter comeback for a 40-33 upset of No. 20 TCU on Saturday.
The loss ended a school-record 22-game home winning streak for the Horned Frogs (3-2).
SMU (4-1) coughed up a 16-point lead in the fourth quarter before McDermott hit Johnson on a deep out route in the end zone for his fourth scoring toss of the game.
TCU's bid to tie ended when a tipped pass from Casey Pachall bounced off the chest of Brandon Carter just past the first-down marker.
The Mustangs beat a ranked opponent for just the second time since the NCAA imposed the so-called death penalty nearly 25 years ago.
