Dalton, Wesley spark 5th-ranked TCU to 27-0 win over CSU

FORT COLLINS, Colo. (AP) - Ed Wesley scored twice, TCU's swarming defense forced two fumbles and the fifth-ranked Frogs overcame a lethargic start to beat Colorado State 27-0 on Saturday.

The Frogs (5-0, 1-0 Mountain West) were making their first trip out of the state of Texas this season and struggled early, leading just 6-0 at halftime.

Wesley's two touchdowns in the third quarter helped TCU pull away from the Rams (1-4, 0-1), who came in as heavy underdogs.

The Frogs rotated in a steady stream of fresh tailbacks all game long as they gained a season-high 346 yards on the ground. Matthew Tucker led the way with 87 yards, while Wesley added 78.

Andy Dalton had a solid afternoon, doing as much damage with his feet as his right arm. Dalton finished with 67 yards rushing and threw for another 109, including a 39-yard touchdown pass to Jimmy Young early in the fourth quarter.
