TCU Football schedules home and home with Duke

It’s a ways down the line, but the Frogs have added another fun Power Five opponent to their future schedule.

What are you doing in 2028?

How about 2029?

It’s time to make some (very) early travel plans, as Frog fans will have a chance to head east to watched their favorite football team a decade plus down the line. On Tuesday, TCU Football announced a home and home series with the Duke Blue Devils, with the Frogs heading to Durham, North Carolina in 2028 and the Devils coming to Funky Town the following year.

While Duke isn’t exactly a football powerhouse (think we could get them on the hoops schedule sooner, Coach Dixon?), it’s another fun trip for TCU fans to have a chance to take - Durham happens to be awesome - and another Power Five opponent on the future schedule. The two game set will be the first two times the teams have ever played each other.

This is just the latest addition to a loaded future schedule, as TCU has at least one P5 opponent on the books through 2029. The Frogs will play a one-off next season against Ohio State in AT&T Stadium, go to Purdue in 2019, to Cal in 2020, host call in 2021, travel to Colorado in 2022, host the Buffs the following season, head to Palo Alto to take on Stanford in 2024, head to North Carolina to play UNC in Chapel Hill in 2025, host the Tar Heels in 2026, host the Cardinal in 2027, head back to North Carolina in 2028, and then host Duke and Purdue in 2029. It appears that Gary Patterson’s “we will play anyone, anywhere” scheduling philosophy will outlive his tenure in Fort Worth, which is pretty crazy to think about.

But before we start getting too ahead of ourselves, the Frogs have one game remaining in 2017, as they head to San Antonio this weekend to prepare for Stanford in the Alamo Bowl. But for now... guess it’s time to see how far out the airlines are ticketing...
