EDITOR'S NOTE: TCU did not cover the 33-point spread today; this isn't a Vegas thing, but when Boise State is rolling its weak opponents, the Frogs need to do the same thing.
Leftovers from TCU's 27-0 snorefest against Colorado State.
* TCU’s 27-0 victory marked the first time in Gary Patterson’s 10 seasons as head coach that the Horned Frogs recorded a shutout on the road. The previous six shutouts under Patterson came in home games. TCU’s last road shutout was a 24-0 win at Navy on Sept. 30, 2000, when Patterson was the Horned Frogs’ defensive coordinator.
*TCU extended its regular-season winning streak to 18 games. The Horned Frogs have won 19 of their last 20 overall contests and are 31-3 in their last 34 games.
*The Horned Frogs won their eighth straight road game.
*TCU won its Mountain West Conference opener for the fourth time in six seasons. On the three previous occasions they won their MWC opener, the Horned Frogs went on to post a combined 23-1 league record.
*Today was TCU’s only game in the opening eight contests played outside the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex.
*TCU recorded a season-high 346 rushing yards. The total marked the most for the Horned Frogs since racking up 355 in last season’s 45-10 victory at Wyoming (Nov. 21, 2009).
*TCU won for the 36th consecutive time when rushing (346) for more yards than passing (128).
*The TCU defense registered four sacks and now has 15 this season, an average of 3.0 per contest.
*Andy Dalton’s 39-yard fourth-quarter touchdown pass to Jimmy Young gave him a new TCU record 50 scoring tosses in his career, breaking the Horned Frogs’ previous all-time mark of 49 (Max Knake, 1992-95).
* RB Ed Wesley had touchdown runs of 8 and 3 yards to give him a team-high six rushing scores on the season. It was his second career two-touchdown game. He also ran for two scores earlier this season against Baylor.
*Tanner Brock recorded a career-high 10 tackles to lead TCU. The figure is the highest total by a Horned Frog this season.
