Here’s another way to look at Dalton’s diminished numbers: The Frogs are running the ball like they did when LaDainian Tomlinson was in the backfield. Led by Ed Wesley’s 497 yards, six touchdowns and 7.1 per-carry average, TCU is seventh nationally at 275 rushing yards per game _ the highest since they averaged 275.6 yards in 2000, Tomlinson’s final season.

“I don’t think there’s any secret they’ve got a lot of playmakers,” Christensen said.

The Cowboys have their own issues on offense, ranking second-to-last nationally at 251 yards per game. They were held to 135 yards in the loss to Boise State and now face another strong TCU defense, ranked No. 3 nationally at 238 yards allowed per game.

“It’s not too hard to figure out,” Christensen said. “Execution is the problem. The plays are there. The design is there. The execution is not. So we keep working on it.”
