TCU’s blowout victory in the Battle for the Iron Skillet was to be expected given TCU’s improvement and SMU’s continued demise, but things will start to get real interesting for the Horned Frogs as Big 12 play begins this week. After playing in front of a nearly-empty Ford Stadium this week, the spotlight will now shine bright on the Frogs as No. 4 Oklahoma comes to town.
The TCU football team has entered the top 25 in this week's Associated Press and Amway USA Today Coaches polls.
One of those four will be played in Fort Worth, when No. 25 TCU (3-0, 0-0 Big 12) opens conference play against No. 4 Oklahoma (4-0, 1-0) at 2:30 p.m. Saturday at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
This week, the first real test of that thinking will unfold in the conference, with AP No. 4 Oklahoma traveling to No. 25 TCU and No. 7 Baylor going to Texas.
Two goals by Kansas in the first 13 minutes of the game spelled disaster for TCU as the Jayhawks halted the Horned Frogs' seven match unbeaten streak with a 2-0 win on Sunday.
