DALLAS (AP) -- Casey Pachall threw two touchdown passes, Jason Verrett had two interceptions and No. 15 TCU defeated SMU 24-16 on Saturday night in the DFW Duel, presented by StateFarm.

TCU (4-0) regained the Iron Skillet trophy, which goes to the winner of the Dallas-Fort Worth rivalry.

The game was played in a heavy rainstorm. The rain picked up in intensity around kickoff and never relented as the game progressed.

SMU (1-3) quarterback Garrett Gilbert was 15-of-40 for 190 yards and a touchdown. Running back Zach Line recorded 44 yards rushing on 15 carries including a highlight reel 21-yard touchdown run in the second quarter.

The Mustangs are back in action next Saturday Oct. 6 when they travel to El Paso, Texas to face conference foe UTEP. Kickoff is set for 7:00 p.m. Tickets are available online at
