The Frogs and Aggies renew their baseball rivalry on Saturday night in Houston.

Jamie Plunkett

TCU-Texas A&M has become a fun little baseball rivalry over the last handful of years, with TCU getting the better of the Aggies more often than not.

The Frogs eliminated Texas A&M from their own regional in 2012 as a young TCU squad advanced to the Super Regionals against UCLA that year.

In 2015 TCU eliminated Texas A&M from the Super Regional round in Fort Worth, taking two of three incredibly intense games. The Frogs advanced to the College World Series with a 16-inning 5-4 win.

In 2016 the Frogs traveled to College Station for another Super Regional matchup with the Aggies. TCU once again won two of three, advancing to the College World Series.

In 2017 the Frogs and Aggies played twice. The first game came in this very tournament, as Ryan Merrill hit a walkoff double to give TCU the 11-10 win in 15 innings. TCU overcame a 10-5 deficit in the bottom of the ninth to force extra innings.

The second matchup didn’t come until both teams were already in Omaha, but the result was the same. The Frogs sent the Aggies home with a 4-1 victory, thanks to a Merrill dinger and 12 strikeouts from Brian Howard.

Now, Brandon Williamson and the Frogs look to get another win over the Aggies. Stay here as we chat about the game together.
