FORT WORTH, Texas — Before his pivotal field-goal try in overtime, West Virginia’s Josh Lambert could have used a few more practice swings into the sideline net. But the up-close TCU student section was making concentration nearly impossible, so the freshman kicker opted to stand with his teammates instead.
“The fans were heckling me pretty good, so I had to step away,” said Lambert, who subsequently drilled a walkoff 34-yarder that lifted the Mountaineers over TCU 30-27 on Saturday.
What were the TCU fans saying?
“I’m not allowed to say it right now,” Lambert joked.
