Bram Kohlhausen honors late father after bowl comeback victory

The TCU Horned Frogs seemed dead in the water at halftime of Saturday’s Valero Alamo Bowl as they were down 31-0 at the half to the Oregon Ducks. Backup quarterback Bram Kohlhausen knew he had a lot to do if his team wanted to pull off the win and he did just that.

The Horned Frogs matched the biggest bowl comeback in history as they won 47-41 in triple overtime. Kohlhausen totaled nearly 400 yards and four touchdowns in the team’s win and was named MVP of the bowl game.

Following the game, he was asked about his father, who passed away earlier in the year before the Kansas game, where Kohlhausen had to come in for Trevone Boykin after he injured his wrist and didn’t play very well. Kohlhausen honored his father in the biggest way as he talked about what his father would have thought about the comeback win.

GP: I told (Bram) can you imagine if your dad (who recently passed) if you come back and win this game, what he’s thinking? And (Bram) did.

It was certainly a terrific comeback win for Kohlhausen and a great way to end his career. He certainly has made his father and the entire Horned Frogs nation proud.
