Rivalries & Top Games to Attend

Battle for the Iron Skillet

Rival Team: SMU Mustangs

One of TCU’s biggest rivals is Southern Methodist University, which is also located in the Fort Worth area. While the origins of the story differ between the two schools, the rivalry is long running, and the two schools have played each every year except six since 1915. The winner of the game receives the ceremonial iron skillet and bragging rights over the Fort Worth area.

The Revivalry

Rival Team: Baylor Bears

The TCU - Baylor rivalry is one of the oldest in all of college football as the teams have been meeting on a regular basis since 1899. The rivalry is also one of the most tightly contested rivalries in college football with the Bears holding a slim 52-51-7 all-time lead. Both schools originally were located in Waco, Texas. However, today TCU is still only separated from Baylor by about 90 miles.

TCU vs Texas Tech

Rival Team: Texas Tech Red Raiders

The Horned Frog’s rivalry with the Red Raiders dates back to 1926 when TCU took down Tech 28-16. The rivalry was dormant for a few years after the Southwest Conference broke up in 1995, however, with TCU joining the Big 12 in 2012 the rivalry has picked up right where it left off.
