Patterson, team celebrate on field

November, 28, 2009
FORT WORTH, Texas -- TCU coach Gary Patterson and his team were awarded the Mountain West Conference championship on the field and celebrated a perfect 12-0 season after a 51-10 win over New Mexico.

"I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart," Patterson said over the PA system. "Come join us at a bowl game."

TCU must wait another week before they know exactly what game that might be. But representatives from the Fiesta, Orange and Suger Bowls were in attendance.

Fiesta Bowl chairman of the board Alan Young said the bowl is certainly considering TCU, along with a number of teams. He was impressed by TCU's all-around game.

"In a bowl game, that's what you like to see is a well-rounded team playing another well-rounded team for a good matchup," Young said. "We know that TCU would be a good football team no matter who they played."
