ABOUT THE GAME
*Defending Big 12 champion and No. 3 TCU hosts Texas in its conference home opener.
*Dating back to last season, TCU's 12-game winning streak ranks second nationally behind Ohio State (17).
*Since 1980, TCU's Gary Patterson leads all college football coaches with six 12-game winning streaks. The 55-52 victory at Texas Tech enabled Patterson to break a tie with Bobby Bowden.
*TCU is 34-3 as a top-10 team under Patterson, including 23-1 when in the top 5.
*TCU is looking to defeat Texas in back-to-back seasons for the first time since 1958-59.
*Since beginning Big 12 play in 2012, the Horned Frogs have won two of three meetings with the Longhorns. The road team has won all three games when TCU and Texas have met as Big 12 rivals.
*TCU has opened 4-0 for the sixth time in eight seasons. The Horned Frogs are looking to go 5-0 for the third time in the last seven years and fourth time overall in 15 seasons under Patterson.
*Patterson is 2-2 as a head coach versus Texas.

HOME SWEET HOME
*In 15 seasons under head coach Gary Patterson, TCU is 70-14 at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
*TCU has a nine-game home winning streak.
*The Horned Frogs are playing their fourth season in Amon G. Carter Stadium after its $164 million donor-funded rebuild.
*TCU sold out of football season tickets for the third time in the last four seasons. This year's record-breaking total is 34,094.
*TCU already has four sellouts this season.

SERIES NOTES
*Saturday marks the 86th meeting between TCU and Texas. The Longhorns hold a 62-22-1 advantage in a series that began with an 18-10 Texas win in 1897.
*Since 1958, TCU has lost 18 of its last 19 home games to Texas. All but one game was during the Southwest Conference days.
*TCU is 9-28-0 versus Texas in Fort Worth and 13-34-1 in Austin.
*Texas is TCU's fourth-most played series. The Horned Frogs' 85 games with the Longhorns trail only Baylor (110), SMU (95) and Texas A&M (92).

THE DELAY
*In 2013, the last time TCU hosted Texas in Fort Worth, the game was interrupted for 3 hours and 6 minutes by a weather delay.
*The game resumed just after 11 p.m. and ended after 12:30 a.m.

REMEMBER WHEN?
*One of the more memorable wins in TCU history was a 6-0 victory at No. 1 Texas on Nov. 8, 1961.
*The lone score in the game was a second-quarter touchdown pass from quarterback Sonny Gibbs to Buddy Iles.

TCU NOTABLES
