The furniture magnate promised free furniture to the first 500 customers who spent more than $6,300 at one of his Gallery Furniture stores during the promotion, but only if the team won 63 or more games in 2014.

The people of Texas are getting a lot of free furniture thanks to their sports teams this season, with A&M fans bringing in a similar haul thanks to their opening week win over the University of South Carolina.
