DALLAS (September 29, 2012) -- Casey Pachall threw two touchdown passes, Jason Verrett had two interceptions and No. 15 TCU extended its FBS-best winning streak to 12 games by beating SMU 24-16 on Saturday night.
TCU (4-0) has won 11 of 13 over SMU and regained the Iron Skillet trophy, which goes to the winner of the Dallas-Fort Worth rivalry. The Horned Frogs' previous loss came last season at home to the Mustangs (1-3).
The game was played in a heavy rainstorm. The rain picked up in intensity around kickoff and never relented as the game progressed.
SMU quarterback Garrett Gilbert threw five interceptions, including one by Verrett on a desperation pass to end the game. The Mustangs turned the ball over six times.
