Saturday, as the Frogs head up to Morgantown to take on West Virginia, the high is expected to be 47 degrees. That’s chilly for this Texas crew.
And as I sit here in my Batman costume thinking about the weather, I got curious, so I went back and looked at the results of the cold weather games over the last four seasons for the Frogs.
Now, I consider anything less than 50 degrees to be “Stay the eff inside” weather, so we’ll use that temperature as our barometer for what is considered a “cold-weather” game.
I found five games that qualify. They’re listed below.
October 10, 2009: TCU @ Air Force
Temp: 19 degrees
Result: W 20-17
November 21, 2009: TCU @ Wyoming
Temp: 23 degrees
Result: W 45-10
January 1, 2011: TCU vs. Wisconsin
Temp: 50 degrees
Result: W 21-19
November 5, 2011: TCU @ Wyoming
Temp: 35 degrees
Result: W 31-20
November 12, 2011: TCU @ Boise State
Temp: 43 degrees
Result: W 36-35
So, the Frogs are a perfect 5-0 in cold weather games dating back to 2009. Hopefully that trend will continue this Saturday.
