In July of 2011, coach Tommy Tuberville said of TCU, "That's not the type of team we want to play right now."
With TCU in the Big 12, Tech has no choice. The good news for Texas Tech is that Tuberville obviously has a team that can play TCU.
Texas Tech at TCU on Oct. 20 in Fort Worth. Don't worry Red Raider fans, you can find tickets on EBay and other outlets from the many TCU folks who are pawning their many extras.
Both Texas Tech and TCU are 5-1 and 2-1 in the Big 12, and both are coming off their most impressive wins of the season on Saturday.
This is what makes TCU joining the Big 12 highly entertaining. It is October and rather than watch TCU play New Mexico it hosts a regional rival where the outcome is unpredictable.
Both the Red Raiders and Horned Frogs will enter this game ripe to come down off the respective emotional highs of blowing out West Virginia at home, and crushing Baylor on the road with a young team.
Any outcome is conceivable.
VERY EARLY PREDICTION (these things are fluid): Home team wins. Barely.
