MORGANTOWN, W.Va. (AP) — Corey Fuller caught a 25-yard touchdown pass and Trevone Boykin threw to Josh Boyce for the 2-point conversion, lifting TCU to a 39-38 double overtime win over No. 23 West Virginia on Saturday night.

TCU (6-3, 3-3 Big 12) got the victory after West Virginia (5-3, 2-3) went ahead on Geno Smith's 25-yard TD pass to Stedman Bailey.

On TCU's possession, Boykin handed off to B.J. Catalon and he pitched to Brandon Carter, who threw to Fuller in the end zone.

Boyce then caught the 2-point conversion, which was upheld after review.

TCU rallied from 10 points down to force overtime. Boykin and Boyce teamed up on a 96-yard TD pass play with 1:28 left to tie the score at 31-31.

Neither team scored in the first overtime.
