*TCU has won 20 of its last 26 conference road games.
*The Horned Frogs are 8-6 on the road in their Big 12 history.
*TCU is tied for sixth nationally in most road wins (6) over Associated Press Top-25 teams since 2009.

SERIES NOTES
*Texas Tech holds a 30-24-3 edge over TCU in the all-time series that began with a 28-16 Horned Frogs win in Fort Worth in 1926.
*TCU is 5-18-3 against the Red Raiders in Lubbock and 19-12 versus Texas Tech in Fort Worth.
*Since joining the Big 12, TCU is 1-2 versus Texas Tech. Prior to last season’s 82-27 win in Fort Worth, the Horned Frogs lost 20-10 in Lubbock in 2013 and 56-53 in triple overtime in Fort Worth in 2012.

FAMILIAR FACES
*Two members of TCU’s coaching staff have spent time at Texas Tech.
*TCU co-offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Sonny Cumbie came to the Horned Frogs after four seasons as an assistant coach at Texas Tech (2010-13).
*Cumbie was the Red Raiders’ co-offensive coordinator and outside receivers coach in 2013. He stepped into a play-calling role as interim OC when the Red Raiders totaled 429 yards in a 34-31 win over Minnesota in the 2012 Meineke Car Care Bowl.
*Cumbie became the Red Raiders’ starting quarterback as a senior in 2004. He led Texas Tech to an 8-4 record, capping the season by passing for 520 yards and earning Holiday Bowl Most Valuable Player honors in a 45-31 victory over No. 4 California.
*TCU safeties coach Chad Glasgow was Texas Tech’s defensive coordinator in 2011. He returned to TCU in 2012 in the same position he held from 2001-10.
*Texas Tech safeties coach Trey Haverty served two stints as an assistant at TCU under head coach Gary Patterson. Haverty was a graduate assistant on defense from 2007-09, before becoming the Horned Frogs’ safeties coach in 2011 and then wide receivers coach in 2012.

DID YOU KNOW?
*TCU co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie has been on both sides of scoring history in the TCU-Texas Tech series.
*He helped lead the Horned Frogs to single-game TCU and Big 12 scoring records with last year’s 82-27 victory over the Red Raiders.
*The most points ever allowed by TCU under Gary Patterson was in 2004, when Cumbie was the starting quarterback for Texas Tech in its 70-35 win.

TCU NOTABLES
*TCU has the nation’s second-longest streak (16 games) for consecutive games with a first-quarter touchdown (USC, 17).
*Trevone Boykin has the nation’s longest streak with a touchdown pass in 18 straight games.
*Boykin leads all active players nationally with 9,723 career yards of total offense.
*All nine of Boykin’s completions in the red zone this season have been for either a touchdown or first down. He is 9-of-13 for 68 yards and five scores.
*Seven defensive starters have been sidelined at different points for TCU this season.
