FORT WORTH, Texas (AP) - Trevone Boykin threw for 454 yards and five touchdowns and added a highlight scoring run when he ducked out of a sack as third-ranked TCU held on for a 56-37 victory over SMU on Saturday night.

The Horned Frogs (3-0) won their 11th consecutive game, a winning streak second only to the 16 in a row by top-ranked defending national champion Ohio State.

TCU was up 42-17 when Boykin threw a 31-yard TD pass to Kolby Listenbee on the first series after halftime. But SMU, with its own dual-threat quarterback in Matt Davis, scored the next 20 points before Boykin's 42-yard scoring strike to Josh Doctson with 6:32 left.

Boykin, who finished fourth in the Heisman Trophy voting last year, completed 21 of 30 passes. His only interception did help the late surge by SMU (1-2), but the senior quarterback made another big throw to Doctson to make sure the Frogs avoided being upset in the Battle for the Iron Skillet.

Doctson had five catches for 171 yards and two touchdowns. Aaron Green ran 21 times for 164 yards with two scores, including a 1-yarder in the final minute.
