ABOUT THE GAME
*Defending Big 12 champion and No. 8 TCU hosts Kansas.

*TCU is 29-11 in regular-season games following a loss under head coach Gary Patterson.
*TCU is 8-1 or better for the fifth time in the last eight years and eighth time overall in 15 seasons under Patterson.

HOME SWEET HOME
*In 15 seasons under head coach Gary Patterson, TCU is 72-14 at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
*TCU has an 11-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 sold out its opening four home games this season. The Nov. 27 Baylor game is also sold out.
*TCU’s senior class will be recognized in a pre-game ceremony Saturday.
*The 2015 seniors ushered in the Horned Frogs’ Big 12 era. The last four years for this year’s senior class marked TCU’s first four seasons in the Big 12.
*Overall, the 2015 seniors have posted a 31-16 record while being part of 2014 Big 12 and Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl championships as well as the opening of the new Amon G. Carter Stadium.
*The seniors are 5-2 against ranked opponents the last two seasons. They are bowl bound for the third time in the last four years and are 21-8 at Amon G. Carter Stadium, including 11-0 the last two seasons.
*TCU holds a 19-8-4 edge over Kansas in a series dating back to a 41-6 Horned Frogs’ win in Fort Worth in 1942.
*TCU is 8-2-2 against the Jayhawks in Fort Worth, 9-6 versus KU in Lawrence and 2-0-2 in the four games (1944-47) played in Kansas City.
*A 20-6 TCU victory at Kansas in 2012 marked the Horned Frogs’ inaugural Big 12 game.
*Prior to TCU beginning Big 12 play in 2012, the schools had not met on the gridiron since a 17-10 KU victory in Lawrence in 1997, the year before Gary Patterson arrived at TCU as defensive coordinator.
*TCU co-defensive coordinator/linebackers coach DeMontie Cross was KU’s LB coach in 2012.
*KU co-defensive coordinator/cornerbacks coach Kenny Perry was TCU’s cornerbacks coach last season, after serving as the Horned Frogs’ director of high school relations in 2013.
*Perry was previously the head coach at nearby Arlington Bowie High School, where he coached TCU wide receivers Kolby Listenbee and Tony James. Both were starting quarterbacks under Perry.
