TCU Football and the Big 12 have announced the start times and TV channels for the first three Horned Frog games of the 2016 season, as well as the Thanksgiving week matchup against Texas.

The Frogs first two games of the season will take place under the lights at Amon G. Carter Stadium, when they host South Dakota State on September 3rd, on FSN, and Arkansas on September 9th, on ESPN (or ESPN 2, depending on where you live).

TCU will open it's Big 12 Conference slate with an 11 a.m. start time against Iowa State on Fox Sports 1, before heading across the Metroplex to face SMU the following Friday (time TBD).

TCU's third Thanksgiving-week game down in Austin will not take place on Thanksgiving Day, as in the past, but will instead be played on the Friday of Thanksgiving week, at 2:30 p.m.. It will be televised on Fox/Fox Sports 1, again, depending on your region.

The Frogs are looking to continue their recent trend of success in the Big 12, as they try to improve on a 15-3 conference record over the past two seasons.
