FORT WORTH, Texas • Brandon Carter had a 68-yard touchdown on one of his one-handed catches, linebacker Kenny Cain recovered a fumble along with two interceptions and 17th-ranked TCU beat Virginia 27-7 on Saturday for its 11th consecutive victory.

Casey Pachall threw for 305 yards and three touchdowns for the Horned Frogs (3-0), whose winning streak is the longest among FBS schools.

Josh Boyce had his TCU-record 18th touchdown catch. Freshman Jaden Oberkrom had field goals of 46 and 47 yards, the second field goal set up by Cain’s 40-yard interception return.

The Frogs hadn’t allowed a touchdown this season until Virginia (2-2) finally scored with 4 1/2 minutes left when backup quarterback Phillip Sims threw a 5-yard TD to E.J. Scott.

Carter had five catches for 128 yards, his second consecutive 100-yard receiving game.
