LAWRENCE, Kan. (AP) – Aaron Green ran for 128 yards and two touchdowns, Cameron Echols-Luper returned a punt 69 yards for another score and No. 5 TCU turned back a spirited upset bid from Kansas in a 34-30 win Saturday that kept the Horned Frogs in playoff contention.

Trevone Boykin added 330 yards passing and a touchdown for TCU (9-1, 6-1 Big 12, No. 4 CFP), which trailed 27-17 midway through the third quarter before a big finishing kick.

Chris Hackett’s interception with 3:26 left in the game sealed the victory.

Michael Cummings had 332 yards and two touchdowns passing for the Jayhawks (3-7, 1-6), who were trying for their first regular-season win over a top-five team since beating Colorado in 1995.
