TCU Football’s 2018 Schedule Announced

The Frogs 2018 slate has some good balance to it.

TCU released its 2018 football schedule on Tuesday morning, and it sets up pretty nicely.

TCU opens 2018 with games against Southern and SMU, before meeting up with Ohio State at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. Of course, we all still wish that was a home and home with OSU, but one nationally televised game at Jerry World is a big opportunity for the Frogs early in the season.

TCU then follows up Ohio State by traveling to Texas. It’s odd to play in Austin in September, as the Frogs have traditionally played the Longhorns on Thanksgiving, or the day after, when they’ve traveled down south.

The Frogs then head back to Fort Worth to host Iowa State, before heading into their bye week. TCU then hosts Texas Tech and Oklahoma back to back, before heading to Lawrence to close out October.

November has TCU hosting Kansas State, before heading on the road two consecutive weeks against West Virginia and then to Waco to face Baylor.

The Frogs close the season at home on November 24th against Oklahoma State.

I like the balance of this schedule for TCU. The Frogs face a tough challenge in Ohio State after breaking in some new offensive players like Shawn Robinson in the first two weeks, and challenging conference games (Texas, Oklahoma, WVU, Oklahoma State) are spaced out a bit.

Overall, the home slate of games is really good, with Iowa State, Texas Tech, Oklahoma, Kansas State, and Oklahoma State all making their way to the Carter.
