Texas is preparing to face TCU in Fort Worth for a critical Big 12 showdown in Week 5.

As you’ve probably heard already, the Horned Frogs have owned the Longhorns over the last decade. Garry Patterson’s teams have won seven of the last matchups between the two programs.

Texas head coach Steve Sarkisian is hoping to get the monkey off their back this season. TCU gave up 350 yards rushing in their loss to SMU last week, which plays into the strength of Texas’ offense. Through four weeks of the season, the Longhorns have one of the most talented running back rooms in the country.

TCU’s defense does not look like the stout group that we’ve grown accustomed to. On the flip side, Texas has not had to punt a single time throughout their last two games. You’d think that is the recipe for a Texas win this week, but unexpected moments seem to always occur in this matchup.

If you’re not hyped up enough already, take a look at the pregame buzz from players, coaches, alumni and fans prior to kickoff.
