TCU and Texas A&M will finally face off in something other than baseball, as the two schools have agreed to a multi-year neutral site series, according to sources.

The Horned Frogs opened the beautiful new Dickies’ Arena as a sporting venue last December, losing the finale of a two game series with USC that had started at Staples Center the year prior. After the game, Athletic Director Jeremiah Donati made it clear that TCU Basketball would like to continue the relationship with the first-class facility, and hinted that the Frogs could regularly play a non-conference game there. They chose an outstanding partner in Texas A&M, a program on the rise under Buzz Williams, and one that adds a potential Q1 opponent to the out-of-conference grind.
While the women’s program faced the Aggies just this past year, the men have not met up with A&M since way back in 1996, when they edged them by two points in College Station. The Frogs actually hold a two game win streak over their former SWC rival, though the Aggies have an 89-76 advantage all-time over TCU.
In addition to A&M, the Frogs have also added Colorado to the schedule as part of the Coast to Coast Classic, a tournament that will take place in Las Vegas on December 19th, and will feature matchups between Baylor and Oregon and Washington and Oklahoma in addition to the Frogs and Buffs. TCU will also face Providence in the Big East Challenge and a to-be-named SEC team as part of the Big 12/SEC Challenge. They’ll also participate in the Hall of Fame Classic, which features a field including Cal, Northwestern, and South Carolina.
