Michigan-The University of Texas leads the football team in Week 12, losing with wins

Michigan football player Jake Moody, 13, celebrates with tight end Joel Honigford and other teammates after Moody scored the winning goal against Illinois at Michigan Stadium, Saturday, November 19, 2022.

Two kicks: one with nine seconds remaining, and one with zeros on the clock. This year’s predictable college game picture could not be rewritten; If both of them veered off course, the playoff race could have devolved into chaos just steps from the regular season finish line.

No team in the Bowl Subdivision is more adept at winning close games than No. 4 TCU, who smashed a playoff game out of nowhere with unwavering confidence in Sonny Dykes’ offensive scheme and seemingly unstoppable process of late-game heroics.

Down 28-20 against Baylor with less than seven minutes left, the Horned Frogs drove 90 yards to tie the game at 28-26 but missed the two-point conversion. After stopping on the Bears’ ensuing possession, TCU marched 45 yards to set up the game-winning 40-yard field goal as time expired.
