TCU and SMU will put the Iron Skillet on the line for the 100th time Saturday. The Frogs hope to bring it back home to Fort Worth.
TCU and SMU Football bring a combined 5-0 record into Saturday’s 100th meeting of the Battle for the Iron Skillet, and this is probably the best team the Ponies have brought to the table in well over a decade.
For the Horned Frogs, Saturday’s matchup is about pride (the Skillet has resided across the Metroplex for two years, thanks to last season’s cancellation) and person success — TCU is just outside the most recent AP Top 25 and a win Saturday would all but guarantee they would open Big 12 play as a ranked team.
This is always a big game — even for you young folks that aren’t as attached to the rivalry — and looms especially large in 2021. Keep it here as we make sure you’re ready for the 100th Battle of the Iron Skillet.
