SAN ANTONIO - The Stanford University marching band upset many TCU fans with its halftime show at the Valero Alamo Bowl on Thursday night.

The field show, titled "True Facts About Texas," was more of a parody of 'fake news' facts regarding those things Texas is known for. In fact, one of the first lines reads, "Our program is sponsored by The Onion and the White House Press Office - everyone's favorite sources definitely not made-up facts."

The first shot of at the Lone Star State? Our pride.

"Texas ranks last overall in state pride."

"Texans are so humble that they only made their Capitol building a tiny bit bigger than the nation's Capitol!"

The marching band also took at shot at the proposed border wall, saying "the cost of it could only pay for the tuition of about twenty million college students."

Then came the Whataburger shot, "a fast food chain that apparently only serves water."

Whataburger responded on Twitter,"Maybe if the Stanford band had some Whataburger they wouldn't be so unhappy."

Commenters on Twitter said the halftime show elicited boos from the crowd.

In case you missed it, Stanford lost the Alamo Bowl game to TCU, 39-37.
