FORT WORTH (AP) – TCU compiled 264 rushing yards and Casey Pachall threw for two touchdowns in a shutout win of New Mexico 69-0 Saturday.

TCU (5-2, 3-0 Mountain West) broke the school record for most points scored in a single game, topping the previous high of 68 scored against Austin College in 1932.

New Mexico (0-7, 0-2) fumbled the ball away on its first two possessions, concluding in short-yardage rushing touchdowns by Matt Brown and Luke Shivers. Following a New Mexico punt, Pachall hit Logan Brock from six yards out to lead 20-0 at the end of the first quarter.

TCU scored touchdowns on three of its four possessions in the second quarter to lead 41-0 at halftime.

In the second half, TCU reached the end zone three times rushing. TCU broke the school record for points when Ross Evans kicked the extra point following a 9-yard touchdown run by Rick Settle with 52 seconds remaining.
