The Oregon Ducks were well on their way to a huge victory in the Alamo Bowl with a 31-0 score heading into halftime. After taking advantage of TCU’s second string quarterback Bram Kohlhausen’s start and only allowing 142 yards in two quarters, the defense failed to carry over the momentum into the second half of the game.
Halting that momentum was the helmet-to-helmet contact between Vernon Adams Jr. and TCU linebacker Derrick Kindred. Adams never returned to the game.
After replacing Adams, Jeff Lockie carried the Ducks to a field goal for their last scoring possession until overtime.
A 22-yard field goal by Jaden Oberkrom tied it 31-31, carrying them into their first of three overtimes. TCU scored first with a Kohlhausen pass to Emanuel Porter for a 7-yard touchdown. Oregon responded with their own touchdown with Royce Freeman, his third of the night.
In the second overtime the teams exchanged field goals. Afterward, Kohlhausen carried it into the end zone for an 8-yard touchdown. The two-point conversion attempt failed and Oregon’s final play was an incomplete pass.
TCU stormed the field with a 47-41 win over Oregon. The comeback tied for greatest in bowl history.
