Too Cold U for SMU

Look, SMU’s Dallas uniforms are sick. We can all grudgingly admit that. And until TCU responds with a Fort Worth version, we are good to lose the threads battle, but hopefully win the Skillet war. On Saturday, the Frogs will go with their all white, #toocoldu kits, bringing out the...

TCU football vs. SMU Mustangs: Kickoff time, TV, radio, prediction

The Iron Skillet’s centennial anniversary is here. TCU and SMU started their football series in 1915 and have played every year since 1925 except for four seasons — last year due to the COVID-19 pandemic; 2006; and 1987-88 when SMU didn’t field a team. TCU leads the all-time series 51-41-7,...

Old SWC rivals Texas A&M-Arkansas game highlights SEC slate

Here are things to watch in the Southeastern Conference in Week 3:. No. 7 Texas A&M (3-0) plays No. 16 Arkansas (3-0) in Arlington, Texas. The matchup of former rivals in the Southwest Conference should go a long way into shaping the Southeastern Conference West Division in the league opener for both clubs. The Aggies have dominated the series with nine straight wins the past decade. They've won their past 11 games dating to last season and are seeking their first 4-0 start since 2016, when they won their first six games. It will be a step up in opponents for new quarterback starter Zach Calzada. The sophomore stepped in for injured passer Haynes King and began to find his game last week in a victory over New Mexico State as he threw for 275 yards, three touchdowns and an interception in the Aggies' win. Arkansas' pass defense comes in 12th in the country, giving up just 142 yards a game in the team's best start in five years. Defensive end Tre Williams had four tackles in last week's 45-10 win over Georgia Southern, including two behind the line of scrimmage. These schools played each year from 1934-1991 as SWC opponents before Arkansas left for the SEC. Texas A&M joined them in the league in 2012.

Keys to the Game: The pass defense can’t be secondary

Listen, I am really proud of that dek, so if you didn’t read the sub-heading, please go do so now. It’s fine, I will wait on you. Okay now that that is out of the way, TCU Football, fresh off of a bye week, looks to run their record to 3-0 in what is the 100th meeting of the Battle for the Iron Skillet. This isn’t your father’s SMU Football program though; the Ponies, at 3-0, present one of the most potent passing attacks that the Horned Frogs will face this season along with a pair of wide receivers that might be second only to Oklahoma when it comes to pure talent and pro potential.
