The Horned Frogs hold a 46-40-7 edge over the Mustangs in a series that began with a 43-0 TCU win in Fort Worth in 1915.
“A lot of people have asked me about what’s going on at SMU. That has no concern to TCU,” he said Monday on the weekly Big 12 conference call with reporters. “What TCU has got to do is take care of TCU. ... We’re trying to make TCU the best team it can be, not only to beat SMU, but also get ready for a pretty tough October.”
Trevone Boykin is a polarizing figure at times for Horned Frog fans. He has the natural ability to float two beautiful fade passes to Josh Doctson in the back corner of the end zone, but also accrue two personal foul penalties in the same game.
But in all three spotlight games, the Big 12 acquitted itself well, setting up Oklahoma or Baylor – or whoever wins the conference – as a strong playoff contender when the committee sits down to select its four teams in December. More importantly, in an era when there are five major conferences and only four playoff spots, the Big 12 positioned itself ahead of the Big Ten and the ACC heading into league play.
