It was a struggle but TCU pulled away from SE Louisiana. Quick where, other than vague geographic waypoints, where is SE Louisiana Located? This is what google is for. The Lions were more than a match for the Frogs early on, but TCU was able to pull away in the second half, outscoring the Lions 21-3.

The real story is the loss of starting QB Casey Pachall. You have to feel sorry for the kids who's worked so hard to put his demons behind him and get back on the field for TCU. Now he looks to be out for a while with an arm injury. As of writing, Pachall has had surgery and the prognosis is that he's out for several weeks and will obviously miss TCU huge trip to Lubbock next week. Speaking of, if TCU wants to contend in the Big 12 a win at Tech is essential. The Frogs haven't had much success on the plains, they'll hope for better next week.
