FORT WORTH -- TCU scored two touchdowns in the opening six minutes and held the opponent scoreless for the first time this season to seal a 69-0 victory over the New Mexico Lobos Saturday in front of 33,833 fans at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
TCU (5-2, 2-0 MWC) had its quickest start of the season, leading to a school-record 69 points. The Horned Frogs jumped out to a 20-0 first quarter lead sparked by a pair of Lobos fumbles. It was the first home game of the season that TCU led after the first quarter.
The Frogs were a perfect 6-for-6 on red zone chances in the first half before finishing the game with 22 first downs and 515 total yards of offense.
New Mexico (0-7, 0-2) couldn't decipher the Frogs' defense, mustering only 85 yards of offense, five first downs and giving away three fumbles.
TCU once again had a balanced offensive attack, rushing for 264 yards and passing for 251. The Frogs set school records with 10 touchdowns and nine different players finding the end zone. Deryck Gildon's blocked punt recovered for a score by Antonio Graves was TCU's first blocked punt since 2008.   
Casey Pachall led the Frogs' passing attack, going 13-for-17 for 175 yards and two touchdowns. Matt Brown came on in relief, going 2-for-4 passing for 76 yards and rushing for two scores.
On the ground, Ed Wesley had six carries for 74 yards and a touchdown. Brown and Waymon James added 52 yards each and three combined touchdowns. Wesley's 4-yard scoring scamper at the start of the third quarter gave the Frogs a 48-0 lead.
Rick Settle, TCU's third quarterback of the day, rushed in the final score with 52 seconds left and Ross Evans' extra point gave the Frogs a school record 69 points in a game. Evans' PAT on TCU's first score gave him the Mountain West all-time scoring record.
Johnny Fobbs sparked the Frogs on the first play from scrimmage with a forced fumble at the Lobo 20 yard line. Brown capitalized on the turnover with a four-yard touchdown run. Fobbs caused another fumble on the ensuing Lobo possession, resulting in a one-yard touchdown run by Luke Shivers.
The Frogs tacked on four more touchdowns before halftime. Antoine Hicks and James both scored from two yards out, while Skye Dawson added a 20-yard touchdown reception to give the Frogs a 41-0 lead going into the locker room.
