A party in Albuquerque for undefeated TCU

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.

When Nevada upset Boise State late Friday night, it opened an easier path for the Horned Frogs to a BCS game or perhaps a chance to play for the national title.


TCU tailback Ed Wesley says there were high-fives in the hotel hallways.
