Michigan, TCU lead college football Week 12 winners, losers with wins

Two kicks: one with nine seconds left, one with zeros on the clock. A single miss would have rewritten the predictable image of this year’s college football playoffs; had both gone wrong, the playoff race would have imploded into chaos just steps from the regular season finish line.

No Bowl Subdivision team is more apt to win close games than the No. 4 TCU, who mounted a playoff charge out of nowhere with unwavering confidence in Sonny Dykes’ offensive scheme and a seemingly unstoppable streak of heroism at the end of the game.

Trailing 28-20 against Baylor with less than seven minutes remaining, the Horned Frogs ran 90 yards to draw 28-26 but missed the conversion by two points. After earning a stoppage on the Bears’ ensuing possession, TCU drove 45 yards to set up the game-winning field goal from 40 yards when time expired.
