Texas Christian University

Texas Christian University:

The colors clashed and so did the football teams.
University of Phoenix Stadium in Glendale, Ariz., was awash in purple, orange and blue Monday night as No. 6 Boise State University brawled with fourth-ranked Texas Christian University to a 10-7 halftime lead at the Fiesta Bowl.

The domed stadium rolled in its retractable grass field as both the Broncos and the Horned Frogs rolled out their Bowl Championship Series hopes, the country’s best mid-major teams stating their case that they belong with the traditional powers.

While Boise State sophomore quarterback Kellen Moore struggled early, Brandyn Thompson put the Broncos on the board first, electrifying at least half the stadium with a 51-yard touchdown return of an errant Andy Dalton pass.
