    FORT WORTH, Texas -- Patrick Mahomes and Texas Tech can certainly pile up the points and the yards. Michael Saunders Jersey . That doesnt always translate to wins.The Red Raiders are coming off a game in which Mahomes completed 52 of 88 passes and matched an FBS record with 734 yards passing, while breaking a record with 819 total yards. And they lost 66-59 .Texas Tech (3-4, 1/3 Big 12) takes a three-game losing skid into Saturdays game at TCU (4-3, 2-2), which has won the last two games in the series with some big numbers of its own.That home game last week against 16th-ranked Oklahoma was Texas Techs fourth loss since the start of last season when scoring more than 50 points. The first was 55-52 in the Big 12 opener last year against TCU, which scored on a fourth-down pass in the final minute.I usually get past losses, Mahomes said, referring to the last game against the Horned Frogs. But with that one ... you fought to the very end, and they got a tipped pass touchdown and it changed the whole dynamic of the season.Tech lost five of seven games after its 3-0 start last year.When the Red Raiders last visited Fort Worth two years ago, TCU set school and Big 12 scoring records in an 82-27 victory . In their first meeting as Big 12 foes in 2012, Texas Tech won 56-53 in triple overtime.First-year Horned Frogs quarterback Kenny Hill is second in the Big 12 with 357.1 total yards a game -- 150 yards behind Mahomes national-leading 507.1 yards per game.But Hill has only 394 total yards combined the last two games. The 34-10 setback at West Virginia last week was TCUs most-lopsided loss in five Big 12 seasons.I dont think just the quarterback, I think we need to play with more swagger, TCU coach Gary Patterson said. Hes got to have more people to throw to. Young players hit the grind. ... Kenny, hes got a little bit of confidence back. Sometimes on throws its not always the quarterbacks fault. But hes the one that gets blamed.Some other things to know when the Horned Frogs and Red Raiders play:RETURN OF TURPSix weeks after injuring his left knee, TCU receiver and returner KaVontae Turpin is expected to be back for the Horned Frogs on Saturday. He got hurt Sept. 17 against Iowa State. He had gone into that game as the national leader with 236 all-purpose yards per game, and was TCUs leading receiver after seven catches in each of the first two games.STILL HEALINGMahomes still doesnt feel like he has the same zip on the ball as he did before spraining a joint in his throwing shoulder against Kansas on Sept. 29, exactly a month ago Saturday. But hes improving. Its actually feeling the best its felt so far since Ive had the injury, said Mahomes, who got hurt when tackled against the Jayhawks. Im going to keep rehabbing and keep getting out there and practicing and it will get better every day.KNOWING KENNYTexas Tech coach Kliff Kingsbury was previously the offensive coordinator at Texas A&M, where he was involved in the recruitment of Hill. Hes a guy who I thought was going to be a star, and hes heading that way, Kingsbury said. You watch him play, hes still learning their system, still getting comfortable, but the sky is the limit on his potential.BOTH SIDES OF BLOWOUTSTCU co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie has been in some scoring history in the series. He was with the Horned Frogs for that 82-point game in 2014. The most points allowed by TCU under Patterson came 10 years before that, when Cumbie was the starting quarterback for the Red Raiders in a 70-35 win.MORE THAN BIG 12This is only the fifth game as Big 12 rivals for Texas Tech and TCU -- they are 2-2 in those games, 1-1 at each teams stadium. They were previously in the Southwest Conference together, and the Red Raiders lead the overall series 30-25-3.---More AP college football: Darwin Barney Jersey . Artturi Lehkonen, Joni Nikko and Ville Leskinen had the other goals for Finland (1-0) while Juuse Saros stopped 28 shots. Tim Robin Johnsgard had the lone goal for Norway (0-2). Miguel Montero Jersey . -- If Henry Burris has his way, he will be the starting quarterback to lead the Hamilton Tiger-Cats back to the Grey Cup next year. . Hey!" The lower tier of the School End of Queens Park Rangers Loftus Road was packed solid with a very festive-sounding Chelsea choral section in this particular part of South Africa Road London, W12. SACRAMENTO, Calif. -- Three weeks ago, Ryan Anderson scoffed at the idea of Houston becoming the first team in NBA history to attempt 50 3-pointers in one game. Now that it happened, Anderson is fully convinced the Rockets can and will do it again.James Harden had 23 points, 10 rebounds and 10 assists in his fourth triple-double of the season, and the Houston Rockets set an NBA record with 50 3-point attempts in a 117-104 victory over the Sacramento Kings on Friday night.Thats this style of play that we built around James . and we have shooters, said Anderson, who made three 3s and scored 13 points. The great part about it, it didnt seem like we took 50. They were in rhythm, they were good looks and those are shots we normally take.The Rockets went 21 of 50 from beyond the arc and came within two makes of matching the single-game record they already share with the Orlando Magic.The Rockets made eight 3s in the first quarter, six in the second, three in the third and four in the fourth.I dont mind it but Ill like to get the record for the most makes, not just the most attempts, Houston coach Mike DAntoni said. ``If thats what theyre giving us, thats what well take. We had good looks, and if a guy has a good look then hes free to shoot it.Trevor Ariza added 18 points and nine rebounds, while Clint Capela scored 17 points to lead Houston to its eighth win in the last nine games between the teams.DeMarcus Cousins had 32 points and nine rebounds for Sacramento despite being hindered by foul trouble much of the second half. Cousins made four consecutive 3-pointers late in the fourth quarter when the Kings pulled within 112-104.If we want to be the team that just lets teams come in here with automatic Ws . thats just whats going to happen if we continue to play this way, Cousins said. Weve got to hold ourselves accountable, take responsiibility for it and change these mistakes. Troy Tulowitzki Jersey. . This probably wont be the last time we see a team get hot like that.Sacramento coach Dave Joerger said the Kings slow start was too much to overcome.We didnt come in and bring enough force early in the game, Joerger said. ``They came in very focused, we came in definitely too slow. They got too many loose balls (and) made 3s.Ariza led Houstons 3-point barrage, going 6 of 11. Eric Gordon added four while Ryan Anderson and Harden added three apiece. Gordon finished with 14 points, one of seven Rockets in double figures.TIP-INSRockets: Houston led by as much as 29 but had to hold off Sacramentos late surge to win in the opener of its five-game road trip. . Ariza made four 3s in the first quarter. . Anderson grew up just outside of Sacramento and was a big Kings fan. . Nene had three fouls in the first half.Kings: Coach Dave Joerger juggled his lineup after halftime and replaced Ty Lawson with Arron Afflalo. Afflalo started 14 of Sacramentos first 15 games but Joerger has been experimenting with a smaller backcourt at times. ... Joerger was given a technical foul in the fourth quarter.ROCKETS DEEP STREAKHouston has made at least 10 3-pointers in its last 15 games, one shy of the NBA record set last year by Golden State and matched later in the season by Cleveland. The Rockets last failed to reach double digits beyond the arc in the season opener, when they made seven.UP NEXTRockets: Play at Portland on Sunday in the second meeting between the teams this season. Houston beat the Trail Blazers 104-83 on Nov. 17.Kings: Travel to Brooklyn to face the Nets on Sunday. Cousins averaged 32 points and more than 11 rebounds in two games against Brooklyn in 2015.
