After a scoreless first half during which each team punted six times, TCU took a 3-0 lead at 4:54 of the third quarter on Nick Browne's 48-yard field goal.
A defensive play led to Stilley's first touchdown pass, which gave TCU a 10-0 lead. On third down, SMU's John Hampton was hit by Jared Smitherman and fumbled, and TCU's Bo Schobel recovered. Three plays later, Stilley hit a streaking Dunbar with a 28-yard touchdown pass.
TCU went up 17-0 in the fourth when Stilley found Dunbar wide open in the middle of the field for a 64-yard touchdown.
SMU avoided the shutout with 9:15 to play on Keylon Kincade's 1-yard touchdown run.
