Texas Christian University’s (TCU) Horned Frogs football team has enjoyed a rich history since its inception in 1896, including national championships in 1935 and 1938, as well as eight former players having been inducted into the College Football Hall of Fame. Nowadays, the TCU Horned Frogs compete in Division I Football Bowl Subdivision, which is recognised as the highest level of intercollegiate athletics sanctioned by the National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) in the USA. The Horned Frogs have been members of the Big 12 Conference since 2012, too.
This year’s Big 12 conference football season was much improved for the Horned Frogs, with the team’s home ground – the Amon G. Carter Stadium – having been subject to a $118M expansion. The venue has seen a number of improvements, with the first phase of what is a multi-year project welcoming an upgrade of the audiovisual technology.
