In what is becoming a theme in 2019, the Horned Frogs will play another afternoon contest when they travel to Stillwater to take on Oklahoma State on Saturday, November 2nd.

Frankly, this is a good thing for Frog fans, as the Pokes are notoriously tough under the lights in Boone Pickens Stadium. On the negative side, though, this game will be a big time game when it comes to television coverage, played on either ESPN or ABC.
That means a lot of eyeballs :/.
TCU Football had not won in Stillwater since 1991 prior to beating the then #6 Cowboys on their home field, in what became the Darius Anderson breakout game. The Frogs beat OSU in Fort Worth last season as well, a stunning upset engineered by Grayson Muehlstein that helped them get to bowl eligibility. This game could have significant bowl implications for both teams as well, as the Cowboys sit at 4-3 and the Frogs 3-3 at the midpoint of the season.
Sandwiched between home games against Texas and Baylor, the early-November matchup has trap game written all over it. But if TCU hopes to get on track in 2019, they’ll need to take it seriously and take advantage of a Pokes team that has been inconsistent behind their own freshman QB.
TCU Football next hosts Texas at Amon G. Carter Stadium Saturday, in what will also be a 2:30 start.
