TCU Football And Baseball In Select Company
June 8, 2010
FORT WORTH, Texas -- For the second straight year, TCU is in select company by having its football team finish in the top 10 and its baseball team reach the Super Regionals.
The only other schools to have a top-10 football program this season as well as a baseball team in the Super Regionals are Alabama, Florida and Texas. The Horned Frogs, Crimson Tide, Gators and Longhorns also played in BCS games in the 2009 football campaign.
Last year, TCU, Texas and Florida were the only three schools to finish in the top 10 in football and advance to the Super Regionals in baseball.
The Horned Frog football team was sixth in 2009 season-ending polls after finishing seventh following the 2008 campaign. TCU football has three top-10 final rankings in the last five years.
TCU baseball opens Super Regional play Friday at Texas. First pitch is 2 p.m. on ESPN2. Saturday's game is at noon on ESPN. Sunday's contest, if necessary, is at 3 p.m. on ESPN.
