In dramatic fashion, #3 Texas Christian University upset #2 the University of Michigan by a score of 51 – 45 in the VRBO Fiesta Bowl.

The Horned Frogs will go on to face the winner of the #4 ranked Ohio State University vs. #1 University of Georgia, but before that happens, the Cinderella story football team will take home a gigantic trophy that weighs more than a grown man and is worth $2.5 million.

According to Emily Ehman of the Big 10 Network, the Fiesta Bowl Trophy weighs a whopping 285 pounds and contains thousands of diamonds.

“Wanna know how much the @Fiesta_Bowl trophy costs?? …$2.5 million The football on the top is $1 million alone because of the 2,200 diamonds,” she tweeted. “It also weighs 285lbs.”

According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, the average United States adult male over the age of 20 weighs 199.8 pounds.

Michigan, who was heavily favored to win the game, has now lost five straight bowl games under Coach Jim Harbaugh.

Daily Wire host David Cone, former quarterback for the Wolverines, tweeted after the game that the team from Ann Arbor simply underestimated their opponent and underdogs in TCU.

Michigan looked past @TCU and paid the price. Congrats to the Horned Frogs for their 0-0 mentality,” he tweeted.

The game will undoubtedly go down as one of the craziest games in recent memory given the high-scoring nature. Michigan came close after being down by double digits, yet was unable to pull ahead of their opponent.

TCU, led by quarterback Max Duggan, made all the right plays at crucial points in the game. The Horned Frog’s highflying offense scored the most points on Michigan out of any team this season.
