ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (AP) — TCU's players handed out roses on the sideline after defeating New Mexico, symbolizing what's next — a possible Rose Bowl trip.
The No. 3 Horned Frogs (12-0, 8-0) had just capped a perfect regular season for the second straight year, winning 66-17 on Saturday. Mountain West commissioner Craig Thompson dashed into the boisterous locker room and handed over the trophy for TCU's second consecutive league title.
One night earlier, the Frogs had another celebration at the team hotel.
