TCU and BYU, former rivals in the Mountain West Conference, are likely to meet for a nonconference game in 2011, but a source at TCU said the game, contrary to reports, will not be played Thanksgiving Day weekend at Cowboys Stadium.
TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte said the Horned Frogs are still finalizing their nonconference opponents for the 2011 season.
BYU, which will play as an independent after being a member of the MWC since 1999, has two open dates left on its fall schedule. TCU, which lost two home games when Texas Tech backed out of a game in September at Amon G. Carter Stadium, and when the MWC switched the Horned Frogs' game with Boise State from Fort Worth to Boise, Idaho, has been trying to fill its schedule with another marquee opponent.
Another high profile potential nonconference opponent for TCU (besides BYU), which moves to the Big East in 2012, is being negotiated currently for a potential neutral site stadium, not necessarily Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
No games have been officially confirmed, but TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte said TCU's schedule will be released soon.
