TCU coach Gary Patterson was walking away from the podium at the end of his weekly news conference when he suddenly offered an intriguing possibility for the 15th-ranked Horned Frogs' backup quarterback.
''What you'll probably see is Trevone Boykin at tailback,'' Patterson said in a surprising unsolicited statement.
Boykin will indeed be in the backfield Saturday when TCU (4-0, 1-0 Big 12), which has won 12 games in a row, plays its first Big 12 home game against Iowa State (3-1, 0-1). But the redshirt freshman will instead be starting in place of suspended quarterback Casey Pachall.
Pachall was arrested on suspicion of driving while intoxicated after running a stop sign near the TCU campus early Thursday, about 36 hours after Patterson revealed the idea of using the speedy Boykin as a tailback. Leading rusher Waymon James has already sustained a season-ending left knee injury and current starter Matthew Tucker is dealing with an ankle injury.
