TCU Football made two big announcements today, as the athletic department decided with Ohio State that it was best to scrap the originally scheduled home-and-home series in 2018 and 2019 in favor of a single game at AT&T Stadium in Arlington in 2018.

TCU also announced an unusually scheduled home-and-home series with Purdue, with the Frogs traveling to Ross-Ade Stadium in 2019, and the Boilermakers coming to The Carter in 2029. Yes, you read that right; this year’s senior class will be in their 30s by the time they see TCU play Purdue in Fort Worth.

Many Frog fans (including this one) were looking forward to hosting a tier one powerhouse like Ohio State at The Carter, as well as the opportunity to travel to one of the more iconic college football stadiums in two years. That being said, TCU has historically performed well at Jerryworld, posting a 2-1 record with wins over Oregon State and BYU and the lone loss coming to LSU in the dreadful 2013 opener.

TCU finishes it’s series with Arkansas this coming fall before starting several home-and-home series with California, Colorado, Stanford, and North Carolina through 2027.
