TCU football traces its origins back to 1896, when the school was still known as AddRan College. Most of the Horned Frog's success came in the Southwest Conference under head coach Dutch Meyer. He would win national championships by winning the Sugar Bowl in 1935 and 1938. TCU has won a total of 18 conference championships in the Southwest Conference, the WAC, Conference USA, and the Mountain West Conference. Some of the great players to wear the Purple and White at TCU include Sammy Baugh, Davey O'Brien, and LaDainian Tomlinson.

2017 TCU Season Preview
The TCU Horned Frogs finished the 2015 season with a double-digit win for the second year in a row and ranked No. 7 in the nation. The Horned Frogs has one of the top defensive tackle trios in the Big 12 with Travin Howard, Montrel Wilson and Ty Summers who all bring experience and athleticism to the position. The offensive side of the ball will have some question marks coming into 2016. With the exit of Trevone Boykin, the quarterback position for TCU is up for grabs between Kenny Hill and Foster Sawyer. Gary Patterson will be leading the TCU Horned Frogs as head coach for the 16th year ready to utilize the improved defense and new offensive talent all the way into another successful Big 12 season and the chance for the CFP Championship. The key games in the TCU Horned Frogs 2016 season will likely come when they play against Oklahoma Sooners and Arkansas in the first half of the season and Oklahoma State in the second half. Whether you are planning on cheering on the Horned Frogs at home games or supporting TCU on the road, TicketCity has some of the best deals for all TCU Horned Frogs’ tickets, including home and away games.
TCU Horned Frogs Football at Amon G. Carter Stadium Address: 2850 Stadium Dr, Fort Worth, Texas, 76109
The TCU Horned Frogs play their home games at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Ft. Worth, Texas. The excavation for the 44,008 capacity stadium is where the Horned Frog nickname originated. Workers discovered thousands of Texas Horned Lizards shooting blood at them. The Horned Frogs will try to leave a similar impression on opposing teams this season. The TCU Horned Frogs home bench is on the Amon G. Carter Stadium sideline with sections 101-109. Amon G. Carter Stadium parking information is covered in our Horned Frogs event guide.
TCU vs. SMU
The Battle for the Iron Skillet is always a close contest between these two Metroplex-area schools, and the name originates from an issue a TCU fan had with SMU fans frying up frog legs before the 1946 game. The series has gone back and forth, with TCU holding the edge through the 50s, SMU losing only twice between 1966 and 1986, and TCU’s recent re-emergence as a national power.
One of the oldest rivalries in college football, the Bears and Horned Frogs bring together two of Texas’s best private universities together for what usually is a very close contest. Less than seven points has decided the game over 40 times, and this game holds the dubious distinction as being the only time a coach died while a game was in progess when TCU’s Jim Pittman collapsed and died on the sideline in 1971.
TCU vs. Texas Tech
Tech leads the all-time series against the Horned Frogs, which has only recently become an active rivalry with TCU’s introduction to the Big 12. The series has been heavily dominated by the Red Raiders, winning 10 of the last 13 while losing only one game at Jones AT&T Stadium.
The Horned Frogs rivalry with Texas is actually one of the oldest rivalries in the country. Texas and TCU first met on the football field in 1897, and have played over 80 times since. The rivalry grew into one of the best in the State while both schools were members of the Southwest conference, but dwindled with the conference dissolving. In 2012, TCU joined the Big 12, rekindling the dormant rivalry and opening up one of the biggest eras of success for the Horned Frogs against Texas, including two wins in Austin on Thanksgiving in 2012, and 2014.
TCU in the CFP Championship and Bowl Games
After playing in the Conference USA and the Mountain West Conference for most of the 21st Century the Horned Frogs finally got their chance to play with the top dogs joining the Big 12 in 2012. The Horned Frogs are proud owners of a mind blowing 18 conference titles in their school’s history. Ticketcity offers tickets to all college football bowl games and the Big 12 Conference Championship Game.
2015 TCU Football Preview
TCU finished 3 points away from having a perfect season last year. The lone blemish on the Horned Frogs records was a 4th quarter collapse against rival Baylor. The season culminated in a 42-3 throttling of Ole Miss in the Peach Bowl, quieting any doubts that TCU was among the best teams in the nation. That confidence has carried over into 2015, with quarterback Trevone Boykin returning for his senior season. Boykin will have one of the best running back duos in the Big 12 with Kyle Hicks and big play threat Aaron Green. TCU will also have one of the most experienced offensive lines in the country, with 4 senior starters suiting up for the Horned Frogs. While there are some question marks surrounding the Horned Frogs defense, TCU enters 2015 with thoughts of not just a Big 12 title, but a trip to the College Football Playoff. TCU will start the season ranked in the top 5, and has probably their best shot at reaching the National Championship since the departure of Andy Dalton. Top games on the TCU Horned Frogs 2015 schedule include at Minnesota, at Oklahoma State, at Oklahoma, and against Baylor for the last game of the season.
2014 TCU Football Preview
TCU enters its 3rd season in the Big 12 with one of the most experienced squads in the conference. The loss of all-american cornerback Jason Verrett on the defense will be the biggest hit to a defensive unit that looks to start 9 upper classmen in 2014. Gary Patterson’s teams have been defined by suffocating defenses and the 2014 team should be no different as the Frogs looks to have one of the top defenses in the conference yet again. The offensive side of the ball will finally be put in the hands of playmaking Trevone Boykin. He will have an experienced group of wide receivers, as well as an excellent running back in B.J. Catalon. Also keep an eye on freshman running back Kyle Hicks. The key games of the season will likely come in the Frogs first 2 Big 12 matchups against Oklahoma and at Baylor.
2013 TCU Football Preview
Head coach Gary Patterson and the TCU Horned Frogs went through a transition period in 2012 during their first season in the Big 12. After not losing a conference game for three straight seasons, the Horned Frogs dropped five last season in a much tougher conference. However, a year of experience will pay dividends as TCU heads into year two in a wide open Big 12 conference. The defense for the Horned Frogs should be a strength as nine starters and much of the second unit returns. Casey Pachall will look to take over the reigns at quarterback with Trevone Boykin also vying for playing time. Depth at running back and wide receiver should help compliment the very stout defense. TCU will kick their season off with a showdown against LSU in the Cowboys Classic at Cowboys Stadium in Alrington, Texas before having home games against Texas, West Virginia, and Baylor.
2011 TCU Football Preview
TCU has been among the best teams in college football in recent years, and before they make the jump to the Big East in 2012, the Horned Frogs will have to prove once again that they belong atop the rankings. With a the loss of a few important players from last year's 13-0 squad, it may be difficult to repeat the success, but there's no telling what head coach Gary Patterson has up his sleeve.
Perhaps the biggest departure is quarterback Andy Dalton, who was drafted by the Cincinnati Bengals. He will be replaced by the inexperienced sophomore Casey Pachall, who saw limited time his freshman season. Luckily for Pachall, last year's leading receiver, Josh Boyce will be returning.
Although the Horned Frogs offense was certainly one of the best in the country, its defense was what really set it part from the rest of the country's teams. Senior Greg McCoy will lead the defensive backfield and linebacker Tank Carder is returning as well after a stellar junior campaign. It will be hard to live up to the 12 points per game the 2010 squad gave up, but they will certainly come close.
2010 TCU Football Preview
It will be nearly impossible for the TCU Horned Frogs football program to improve upon its results from last season, but fans will sure be expecting it. The 2009 champions of the Mountain West Conference finished with a 12-1 record - their lone loss coming against Boise State in the Fiesta Bowl - to finish with a # 3 national AP Poll ranking.
The team has now competed in five consecutive BCS bowl games, and won three of them. Entering 2010 as one of the top teams in the nation, the Horned Frogs bring back quarterback Aaron Dalton, who may be TCU's biggest star since NFL sensation LaDainian Tomlinson.
In 2009, Dalton threw for 2,756 yards, 23 touchdowns and just eight interceptions. Proving he could perform on the ground as well as in the air, he also compiled 512 rushing yards and three TDs. Perhaps his greatest attribute is a flair for the dramatic. The TCU signal caller executed game-winning drives against Clemson and Air Force down the stretch last year to help keep his team undefeated throughout the regular season.
After setting a single-game attendance record at Amon Carter Stadium last year, TCU will be looking to fill the seats again when they open their season against Oregon State on September 4.
2009 TCU Football Preview
The TCU Horned Frogs will once again be a great college football team in 2009. TCU Head Coach Gary Patterson has built the Horned Frogs into a top team in the Mountain West Conference and a perennial National Championship contender. TCU will rely on a stingy defense and opportunistic offense to take down their 2009 opponents.
2008 TCU Football Preview
The Texas Christian University Horned Frogs football program has proven itself to be one of the best teams outside the major conferences in the last ten years. Gary Patterson has an incredible record (54-20 as of 2007) as he carries on the winning tradition stared by Dennis Franchione. Carter Stadium will roar 44,000 strong this season as TCU fans look for the Horned Frogs to win another conference title and vie for a BCS Bowl bid.
