Horned Frogs at No. 2 in AP Preseason Poll


Aug. 23, 2015

NEW YORK -- Defending Big 12 champion TCU is ranked No. 2 in the Preseason Associated Press Top 25 Poll.

The Horned Frogs return 15 starters, including 10 on offense, from last year's 12-1 squad that concluded the campaign with a 42-3 win over Ole Miss in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl.

The No. 2 ranking marks TCU's highest appearance in a preseason poll in program history. The Horned Frogs’ previous best preseason ranking was No. 6 in the 2010 AP poll. TCU was also No. 2 in the 2015 Preseason Amway Coaches Poll, released last month by USA Today.

The Horned Frogs are the preseason pick to win the Big 12. The last two times TCU was predicted to win a conference was in 2009 and 2010. In both years, TCU completed an undefeated regular season in reaching the Fiesta Bowl and Rose Bowl, respectively.

TCU opens its 2015 campaign on Thursday, Sept. 3, at Minnesota. The 8 p.m. CDT game will be televised on ESPN.
