TCU's Sept. 24 home game against Portland State has been moved from 6 p.m. to 1 p.m. and the Horned Frogs Friday, Sept. 30 home game against SMU has been moved to Saturday, Oct. 1 at 2:30 p.m. The SMU-TCU game will be televised on CBS Sports Network, not ESPN, which carried the game last season at SMU.
The changes were prompted by the ongoing construction at Amon G. Carter Stadium. TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte said in a prepared release that "we will still be in the midst of construction, we need to move the games to the daytime to make it easier to manage traffic, parking and movement in and out of the stadium"
The Frogs will play three night games in 2011, including the season opener at Baylor at 7 p.m. Sept. 2. TCU will also play at 9:30 p.m. (Central) at San Diego State Oct. 8 (following the SMU game) and against BYU at Cowboys Stadium at 7 p.m. Oct. 28. Both the Baylor and BYU games will be televised on ESPN.
