Casey Pachall had a 42-yard touchdown pass to Skye Dawson with 4:26 left to lift the No. 16 TCU Horned Frogs to a 31-24 victory against Louisiana Tech in the Poinsettia Bowl last night.

It was the eighth straight victory for Mountain West Conference champion TCU (11-2), which moves to the Big 12 next year. It was the third time this season TCU overcame a fourth-quarter deficit to win.

Pachall was 15 of 29 for 206 yards. He set school single-season records with 228 completions and 2,921 yards, breaking marks set by Andy Dalton.

Western Athletic Conference champion Louisiana Tech (8-5) had its seven-game winning streak snapped hours after coach Sonny Dykes agreed to a contract extension through 2017.

TCU tied the game at 24 on Luke Shivers’ 1-yard run with 7:49 left that capped an 18-play, 72-yard drive that consumed 9 minutes, 21 seconds. TCU forced a punt and scored the go ahead touchdown six plays later.

TCU will be joining the Big 12 next season.
