ABOUT THE GAME

  • After an open date, TCU returns to action when it hosts Oklahoma on Saturday at 11 a.m.
  • Stadium capacity is approximately 12,000 fans for the game.
  • Three of the Horned Frogs’ opening four games this season are at home. TCU leaves the state of Texas just twice in 2020 and not until Nov. 14.
  • Since TCU began Big 12 play in 2012, six of its eight regular-season games versus Oklahoma have been decided by seven points or less, including last year’s 28-24 OU win in Norman.
  • The Horned Frogs have won 14 of their last 19 regular-season games after an open date.
  • Under head coach Gary Patterson, TCU is 44-18 in regular-season games following a loss.
  • The Horned Frogs are 89-26 in home games at Amon G. Carter Stadium under Patterson.

SERIES HISTORY

  • Oklahoma holds a 15-5 series lead over TCU. 4The Horned Frogs are 2-7 versus the Sooners in Fort Worth, 3-6 in Norman, 0-1 in Oklahoma City and 0-1 in Arlington (2017 Big 12 Championship Game).
  • The first game in the series was a 34-19 Sooners’ victory in Oklahoma City in 1944.
  • TCU’s 17-10 win at No. 5 Oklahoma in the 2005 season opener was its first victory over an opponent ranked that high since a 6-0 decision at No. 1 Texas in 1961. The 10 points by OU marked its fewest in a home game under former head coach Bob Stoops.

REMEMBER ME?

  • TCU offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Sonny Cumbie and Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley were teammates during the spring and summer of 2003 at Texas Tech. Riley was then a student coach during Cumbie’s final two seasons (2003-04) as a player for the Red Raiders.
  • TCU outside receivers coach Malcolm Kelly was a two-time first-team All-Big 12 selection and a 2005 Freshman All-American at Oklahoma.
  • Kelly totaled 144 receptions for 2,285 yards and 21 touchdowns in just three seasons. When he left Norman, Kelly ranked second all-time at Oklahoma with his 21 touchdown catches and nine career 100-yard receiving games. He tied a school record with 11 receptions as a sophomore versus Texas Tech in 2006.
