SERIES NOTES

*TCU is 9-27-0 versus Texas in Fort Worth and 12-34-1 in Austin.
*Last year's 20-13 TCU win at Texas marked the 600th victory in the Horned Frogs' football history. It also snapped a four-game Longhorns' winning streak in the series.
*The Horned Frogs' last victory over the Longhorns in Fort Worth was a 23-14 decision in 1992.
*Texas is TCU's fourth-most played series. The Horned Frogs' 83 games with the Longhorns trail only Baylor (108), SMU (93) and Texas A&M (92).

REMEMBER WHEN?
*One of the more memorable wins in TCU football 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. Gibbs handed the ball to halfback Larry Thomas, who tossed it back to Gibbs who then found Iles downfield for the score.
