Texas Christian U. Burns Through Pyrotechnics Budget

October 27, 2014

The Texas Christian University Horned Frogs are having a productive year on the football field, and the success is taking a toll on the institution's pyrotechnics budget. Drew Martin, TCU's assistant athletics director for marketing and licensing, reported on Twitter that, during Saturday's 82-27 thrashing of Texas Tech University, TCU burned through its entire stock of fireworks for the 2014 season. The Horned Frogs have scored 239 points during their five-game unbeaten streak at home this year and still have another two home games left.
