The 2016 Alamo Bowl was an American college football bowl game played on January 2, 2016, at the Alamodome in San Antonio, Texas. The 23rd edition of the Alamo Bowl featured the TCU Horned Frogs from the Big 12 Conference and the Oregon Ducks from the Pac-12 Conference. It was televised at 5:45 p.m. CST on ESPN and heard on ESPN Radio. It was one of the 2015–16 bowl games that concluded the 2015 FBS football season. The game was sponsored by the Valero Energy Corporation and was officially known as the Valero Alamo Bowl.

The Horned Frogs trailed 31-0 at halftime, but an injury to Oregon quarterback Vernon Adams Jr. just before the halftime break would result in a scoreless second half for the Ducks. TCU scored on all 9 possessions after halftime, completing the comeback in the second half with a late field goal. The two teams traded touchdowns in the first overtime and field goals in the second. The Horned Frogs scored in the third extra period, failed their 2-point conversion, but held the Ducks out of the end zone. The 31-point comeback tied the largest comeback in NCAA college football bowl game history with the 2006 Insight Bowl.

Starting the 2015 season by winning 8 straight games, the TCU Horned Frogs finished the season by winning 2 of their last 4 games, including a 28–21 double overtime victory over rival Baylor.

The Frogs were playing the bowl game without two key offensive starters. Wide receiver Josh Doctson, a first-team All-American this season, did not play in the Frogs' final two regular-season games due to a wrist injury that required surgery, and was ultimately ruled out of the bowl game. Quarterback Trevone Boykin was suspended from the team for a violation of team rules; according to multiple media reports, he had been involved in a bar fight in San Antonio early in the morning of December 31, and was alleged to have swung at multiple polic e officers and struck one. Boykin faced several criminal charges in the wake of the incident, the most serious being a felony charge of assaulting a public servant. The suspension caused a dramatic change in the Las Vegas betting line, with TCU going from a 1-point favorite to a 7-point underdog.

After Boykin's suspension, Patterson turned to Bram Kohlhausen, a fifth-year senior walk-on, to start at quarterback. As a high school senior in 2010, he had been rated by ESPN above both Boykin and future Heisman Trophy winner and NFL player Johnny Manziel, and he started his college career at Houston, redshirting in 2011. After seeing little playing time in 2012, he went to the junior college ranks, playing the 2013 season at Los Angeles Harbor College in California and then walking on at TCU. This game would be Kohlhausen's first and only career start at the FBS level.

Method 1: Use Paper Strips

What you need

To be able to measure the ring size using a paper strip, you will need the followings:

  • Thin strip of paper

  • Ruler

How to measure

  • Cut a thin strip from the paper

  • Wrap the strip of paper around the finger. Ensure that the paper is placed below the fingerand close enough to your knuckle.

  • Mark the area where the paper strip meets, then use the ruler to measure the distance.

Notes to bear in mind

It is important to note that people will large knuckles will need to slide the ring through the knuckle. So, this should be taken into account when sizing the ring. Also, the size of the finger changes with changes in temperature, physical exercise, weight changes as well as medication.

If you are in doubt about the size, it is always ideal to go a size higher than lower. 

Method 2: Use String

What you need

  • String

  • Ruler

  • pen

How to measure

  • Cut a string that is 6 inches long.

  • Wrap the string around the base of the ring finger, slightly below the knuckle.

  • Use the pen to mark the string where it ends.

  • Lay the string on the ruler with the area marked on your right.

  • The number closest to the pen mark is the ring size in inches.

  • You can use the ring chart below to translate the measurements into a ring size.

Also: If there is no string or paper available, masking tape can be used, a wire or a twist-tie can also be used.

Ring Size Chart for Your Reference

The following chart can be used to determine the ring size. Also bear in thought that rings come in half sizes also. So, the measurements of half rings will fall somewhere in between the whole ring sizes.

Dos and Don'ts About Measuring Ring Size at Home

A ring is a vital investment and thus it is only proper to research extensively before determining a size. There are a few factors that should be considered when it comes to how to measure ring size at home:
  • Avoid measuring fingers in cold weather as the cold causes shrinking.

  • Fingers should be measured in warm temperatures, preferably at the end of the day.

  • If you find that the size comes under two sizes, it is best to go for the larger size.

  • Measure the size three or four times to be sure that the measurements are accurate.

  • Fingers can swell from taking steroid based medication or when pregnant. Thus, adjustments should be made accordingly.
