Might as well make it an all day affair in Funky Town.
It’s a busy weekend in Fort Worth, as three of the premiere programs representing TCU Athletics will play contests on their home fields. Horned Frog fans can catch football, baseball, and soccer games in one fell swoop.
The TCU football team will close spring practice on Saturday with an open scrimmage for fans at 11 a.m. in Amon G. Carter Stadium, admission is free with all seats being general admission. Gates will open at 10 a.m. with free coffee and breakfast available. The TCU Horned Frogs Store will have product up to 50 percent off. Free parking will be in Lots 1, 6, 7, 13 and 14.
TCU returns 18 starters (eight defensive, 10 offensive) in 2021. You can watch budding stars Quentin Johnston, Zach Evans, Savion Williams, and other top recruits Saturday, as Max Duggan leads a potent and powerful unit. The defense, down several players from throughout spring due to injury, will be debuting at least one new linebacker and several new starters in the secondary.
The Horned Frogs open the 2021 campaign on Sept. 4 with a home game against Duquesne. Including Cal (Sept. 11), SMU (Sept. 25) and Texas (Oct. 2), the Horned Frogs will begin a season with four consecutive home games for just the second time (1979) in program history.
Following the scrimmage, the TCU baseball team will host Oklahoma State at 2 p.m. while the Big 12 champion TCU women’s soccer team has a 7 p.m. home game versus Notre Dame. Baseball is looking to bounce back after a series loss in Lubbock last weekend, and soccer hopes to start a new win streak after dropping their game of the season in College Station.
