TCU's Bram Kohlhausen-led comeback in the Alamo Bowl has another dramatic twist.
Kohlhausen told WFAA 8 in Dallas that he played the game with a broken wrist. The injury happened in TCU's loss to Oklahoma two weeks before the end of the season. Kohlhausen and Foster Sawyer split time in the Horned Frogs' one-point loss as starting QB Trevone Boykin missed the game because of a high ankle spain he suffered against Kansas.
Kohlhausen's left wrist was taped during the Alamo Bowl.
Boykin was arrested before the Alamo Bowl and suspended for the game, opening up the opportunity for Kohlhausen again. The walk-on quarterback helped the Horned Frogs overcome a 31-0 halftime deficit to Oregon and win 47-41 in three overtimes.
Kohlhausen was 28-45 passing for 351 yards, two touchdowns and an interception. He also had 11 carries for 45 yards rushing and two touchdowns. The broken wrist may be another reason why Disney has reached out to the school about the game. Yes, there's a chance that the comeback – and Kohlhausen's performance – could be made into a movie.
"Disney approached us about a movie," TCU sports information director Mark Cohen wrote by email. "Bram's focus this spring is on his May graduation. After he has his degree in hand, we'll revisit the opportunity to see if it's a fit."
In a great gesture, TCU coach Gary Patterson awarded Kohlhausen a scholarship for the spring semester even though the senior's college football career is over. Kohlhausen's father died during the season and his brother paid a fan with a sideline pass $100 for his mother to use the pass to celebrate with the team on the field after the Alamo Bowl.
