TCU Upsets No. 21 West Virginia in 2OT.

Justin K. Aller/Getty Images(MORGANTOWN, WV) --  TCU took a risk in double overtime, and it paid off, helping them upset West Virginia (No. 21 BCS, No. 23 AP) 39-38.

After the teams had a scorless first overtime period tied at 31, West Virginia went ahead 38-31 on a Geno Smith touchdown pass to Stedman Bailey in the second overtime.

When TCU got the ball back, Corey Fuller hauled in a 25-yard touchdown pass from Brandon Carter in double overtime, and Trevone Boykin hit Josh Boyce for a game-winning 2-point coversion and the upset victory.

TCU improved to 6-3 and became bowl-eligible with the win.

The catch was upheld after a review, but the tandem of Boykin and Boyce was a large reason TCU forced overtime.  They connected on a 96-yard touchdown to tie the game at 31 late in the fourth quarter.

The Horned Frogs rallied from a 10-point deficit to force overtime. 

Smith finished with 260 yards. three touchdowns, and one interception for West Virginia. (5-3)
