‘Little Sisters’: TCU-Ohio St matchup came from 2010 remark

Wednesday, September 12th, 2018

One of college football's marquee matchups this weekend is for all of those ''Little Sisters of the Poor'' teams that Ohio State's former president once said the Buckeyes didn't play. A lot has changed since Gordon Gee's statement went viral nearly eight years ago, but there is no denying the role his comments made in ensuring Saturday night's big game between No. 15 TCU and No. 4 Ohio State at the home stadium of the Dallas Cowboys. TCU was deep into an undefeated 2010 season that was capped by a Rose Bowl victory and Boise State was still a few days away from its only loss when Gee, then at Ohio State, said the BCS-busting Horned Frogs and Broncos didn't deserve to be in the Bowl Championship Series title game even if they wound up undefeated.

TCU’s Patterson views SMU as 50-50 game despite dominance

Thursday, September 6th, 2018

TCU coach Gary Patterson always views SMU as one of those 50-50 games, even though the No. 16 Horned Frogs have pretty much dominated the series since the end of the old Southwest Conference. After opening with a lopsided victory over FCS team Southern University, TCU will travel about 40 miles to the other side of the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex to play SMU (0-1) on Friday night. During that short trip, the Horned Frogs will ride by the home stadium of the NFL's Dallas Cowboys where they play No. 4 Ohio State the following week, though they insist they are not looking ahead.
