I’m expecting the Mustangs to put up around 30 points in what should be an absolute Texas football shootout, so let’s take the road team to cover this inflated number against their rivals.
Dykes was very pleased with the physicality the defense showed against an explosive offense like Houston’s.
“Our defense played lights out,” he said. “I give coach Gillespie, the entire defensive coaching staff and the players a ton of credit.”
“They played really good, not giving up one touchdown against a team with that kind of explosiveness,” he added.
Following its 36-13 win at Houston to open Big 12 Conference play, TCU will look to continue the momentum when it hosts SMU on Saturday at 11 a.m. on FS1.
“There’s been a lot of stuff on the internet about Craig James killing the five hookers at SMU. I feel like I know what’s going on, but I haven’t seen, interestingly enough, anywhere a categorical denial that Craig James didn’t kill five hookers at SMU. And so I thought it was important to nail that down.”
While the “Battle for the Iron Skillet” rivalry is ending after 2025, these final few football games between TCU and SMU are sure to be worth it. Whether you wear red or purple, we can all agree on one thing: good food. All of that excitement can work up an appetite, so check out our list of top burger and brunch spots in Fort Worth before or after the game on Sept. 23.
Monday afternoon, the Big 12 Conference announced the West Virginia Mountaineers conference road matchup versus the TCU Horned Frogs will kickoff at 8:00 p.m. EST and will broadcast on ESPN2.
