TCU has just announced that the Frogs' game against the Texas Longhorns, originally scheduled for Thanksgiving Day, has been moved to Black Friday at the request of the Big 12, ESPN, and FOX.

Here's the release from TCU's SID, Mark Cohen:

At the request of the Big 12 Conference and television partners ESPN and FOX, TCU's football game at Texas this coming season has been moved from Thanksgiving, Nov. 24, to Friday, Nov. 25.

The Horned Frogs will be playing on Black Friday for the second straight season, having defeated Baylor 28-21 in double overtime this past year.

Since beginning Big 12 play in 2012, TCU has won both its games versus Texas in Austin. Each one was played on Thanksgiving. The Horned Frogs won 20-13 in 2012 and 48-10 in 2014.

TCU is 3-1 against the Longhorns since joining the Big 12 conference, and has won the past two contests by a combined score of 98-17.
