A Look at TCU Season Openers

As my 30th football season on the TCU Sports Network draws near, I can’t help but think about games, venues, players and coaches I’ve met along the way. And there are a lot of players. Good ones.

It’s the first Big 12 Championship since 2010. OU has appeared in eight of the league’s 15 title games. Its record in such games is 7-1. Lots swirling
