TCU’s brand of football is as tough as the school’s mascot, the fierce desert-dwelling horned frog. Legendary TCU Coach Dutch Meyer revolutionized football during a run to the 1935 national championship - employing the “Meyer Spread,” a formation that allowed his star quarterback Sammy Baugh to revolutionize the forward pass. The success of the 1935 team, built on a fearless and innovative attitude, defines both the mascot and the team today.

The TCU Horned Frogs open their season against LSU. TCU will be debuting their new Nike special edition uniforms for the game. Take a look at the fierce new threads that the players will be wearing.
