Big 12, TCU Announce Several Game Times

Both are questionable.


TCU and the Big 12 announced some early season game times today, including TCU vs. Texas Tech and TCU vs. SE Louisiana.

The Horned Frogs play Southeastern Louisiana on September 7th at 11:00 a.m and will be televised by FOX Sports Network. They'll face off against the Red Raiders the following week on Thursday, September 12th at 6:30 p.m on ESPN.

I'm not a huge fan of a 6:30 kickoff on a Thursday. That's hardly enough time to get to a TV and get settled in. As for the morning game against Southeastern Louisiana, I'm guessing this is a part of a new "Sweat off the Pounds" program TCU is starting.

Some other notable game announcements include Texas' game against Ole Miss (6:30 p.m.), which will be aired on the Longhorn Network. I'm sure Rebel fans are thrilled with that.

Here's the full group of times that were announced.
