TCU says its stadium literally ran out of fireworks during 82-27 win

The Horned Frogs exhausted their *season* supply of pyro in the blowout.

TCU's not used to having a high-scoring offense. The Horned Frogs have primarily been a defensive team under head coach Gary Patterson, but suddenly find themselves with the top scoring offense in the nation after scoring 82 points Saturday against Texas Tech, the most in an FBS conference game since 2010.

The offensive explosion was so unexpected, in fact, that TCU ran out of their fireworks allotment for the entire season, according to Assistant Athletics Director for Marketing and Licensing Drew Martin.

Save some of those points for the rest of the season, TCU. A road game against West Virginia is next week; you will need them.
