TCU Horned Frogs Football Tickets
The Schedule in 2013
The Horned Frogs of Texas Christian University,
who joined the Big 12 Conference in 2012, have been one of college football's most exciting teams over the last few years.
They rose out of relative obscurity onto the national scene in 2008, when they reached as high as #7 in the coaches poll and
defeated Boise State in the Poinsettia Bowl. Their big break came in 2012 with the move from the Mountain West Conference
to the Big 12, increasing their national exposure and the level of competition in their conference. The 2013 Horned Frogs
team has suffered many injuries that have slowed them down. There is still time for them to salvage their season.
first step will be their November 16 matchup with the Kansas State Wildcats at Bill Snyder Stadium in Manhattan, Kansas. Horned
Frog fans travel well and this is definitely a road trip worth taking. A win over the Wildcats would be a great upset for
the Horned Frogs, especially on the road. Kansas State has a tough rushing attack with senior running back John Huber and
sophomore quarterback Daniel Sams very good at finding the endzone. This exciting matchup in Manhattan is one you can't miss.
Horned Frogs close out their home schedule with a clash against the exciting #6 Baylor Bears. Fresh off a 42-12 throttling
of the #10 Oklahoma Sooners, the Bears are poised to make a BCS Bowl appearance. Horned Frogs fans will cheer their team on
against their in state rivals, one of the best teams in the country. The TCU defense will have their hands full with the #1
scoring offense in the country, as the Bears average a whopping 61 points per game. Don't miss the Horned Frogs final home
game against one of the most exciting teams in the nation.
The TCU Horned Frogs have done a lot
of moving over the last few years, but have finally found a home in the tough Big 12 Conference. Though they have two National
Championships in their program's history, they haven't won one since 1938. The football program has enjoyed much success
over the years, especially under current coach Gary Patterson, took over the Horned Frogs in 2000. During his tenure, TCU
has gone from the Western Athletic Conference (WAC) to Conference USA to the Mountain West Conference and, in 2012, to the
Big 12. Since 2000, the Horned Frogs have won five conference championships, and 2004 is the only year that TCU did not make
a bowl game appearance. Now the winningest coach in TCU history, Gary Patterson is taking the program to new heights, competing
amongst some of the best programs in the country in the Big 12 Conference.
The 2013 TCU Horned Frogs entered the season
ranked #20 in the country, but multiple injuries have set the team back from their goals for the year. Despite the injuries,
the Horned Frogs are having an incredible defensive year, leading the Big 12 in sacks and interceptions. If they continue
to play as they have, TCU will be the first team to do so since the Nebraska Cornhuskers, who achieved the impressive feat
in 1996. The Horned Frogs have 26 quarterback sacks so far this year and are second in all of college football with 17 interceptions.
With their meteoric rise into the national spotlight in the last decade, the Texas Christian University
Horned Frogs football team has become a big time program. Since finishing the 2008 football season ranked #7 nationally after
a defeat of the previously undefeated Boise State Broncos, they have managed to move to the respected Big 12 Conference, matching
up against some of the best programs in the country like the Texas Longhorns, Oklahoma Sooners and Oklahoma State Cowboys.
With this increased visibility, the gameday experience at Amon G. Carter Stadium has blossomed under the bright lights of
a big time conference. This Fort Worth open air stadium has undergone incredible renovations in the last few years, enhancing
the experience for the team and fans.
There is nothing quite like a Saturday on campus during the football season, when
students, alumni and members of the community at large band together to support their team. Horned Frogs fans are notoriously
rowdy, cheering their team on as they create a certain home field advantage. When you attend a Horned Frogs game, not only
do you experience top tier talent on the field, but an amazing fan experience hours before the opening kickoff. Get your tickets
to be a part of a true college football tradition in Fort Worth.
The Big 12 is consistently
one of the top conferences in college football, with programs like Texas and Oklahoma always at the top of the rankings. Recently,
the Big 12 has become even more deep with the addition of the TCU Horned Frogs and the reemergence of the Baylor Bears as
a top team over the last few years. It is hard to compete against the SEC when it comes the winning National Championships,
but the Big 12 has a winning legacy to rival their Southeastern rivals.
