The Frogs will not have to face the Cats on a Thursday after all.

NCAA Football: Kansas State at Texas Christian Kevin Jairaj-USA TODAY Sports

In a move that is sure to sit well with all parties involved, TCU Football’s originally scheduled date with Kansas State has been moved from a Thursday night kick to a Saturday.

The game will take place in Manhattan, and feature Gary Patterson facing off against someone other than Bill Snyder for the first time since the Frogs joined the Big 12. The Wildcats hired former North Dakota State head man Chris Klieman after Snyder retired at the conclusion of this past season. Originally scheduled for Thursday, October 17th, the game will now take place on that Saturday, October 19th.

TCU will take a two game winning streak over the Cats to Bill Snyder Family Stadium next season, and hold a 4-3 advantage in conference play. The Frogs will be coming off of a bye week before heading to the Little Apple, with Iowa State scheduled for October 5th and Texas coming to Fort Worth the following week.

TCU opens their season on Saturday, August 31st against Arkansas-Pine Bluff. They play Purdue in Indiana on September 14th.
