Season schedule

TCU ranked No. 17 in the AP Preseason poll after qualifying for their first CFP National Championship during the 2022 season.

We’ll see where the team trends after the home opener against the University of Colorado on Saturday, Sept. 2 at 11 a.m. The Horned Frogs will take on the University of Houston on the road in their first Big 12 conference game on Saturday, Sept. 16.

Check out the full season schedule and snag tickets before they sell out.

Who to watch

Head coach Sonny Dykes will lead the team for his second season — this time as the standing Paul “Bear” Bryant Coach of the Year. The real question: Will Sonny be reprising his viral hypnotoad sweatshirt?

With eight Horned Frogs drafted into the NFL — including quarterback Max Duggan — we’re keeping a close eye on new and returning faces that have made some recent watchlists.
