The last team to beat the Baylor Bears was TCU, nearly a full year ago. Since then, the Bears have run off ten straight wins and put themselves in the driver’s seat for a Big 12 title.
But before they make their plans for Arlington, they will need to come to Fort Worth and face a Horned Frogs team that is being held together with duct tape, bandaids, and the confidence born of four straight wins over their most bitter rival.
We don’t know who will play quarterback, we do know that the Frogs will be without Innis Gaines, and we are quite sure this will be a fun one.

ABOUT THE GAME
- TCU plays just its second home game in an eight-week stretch when it hosts No. 11 Baylor on Saturday at 11 a.m.

- TCU is 42-16 in regular-season games following a loss under Gary Patterson.
- TCU is 89-22 in home games under Patterson.
- Three of the Horned Frogs’ four losses this season have been by seven points or less.
- Last year’s 16-9 win in Waco gave TCU a 55-52-7 series lead over Baylor.
- With 114 games played, TCU has faced Baylor more than any opponent in its history.
- The Horned Frogs are 27-28-4 at home against the Bears and 28-24-1 on the road. TCU and Baylor are tied in both neutral-site meetings.
- The first game between TCU and Baylor was a scoreless tie in 1899.

HORNED FROGS TO WATCH
