ABOUT THE GAME
*Defending Big 12 champion and No. 18 TCU closes the regular season Friday when it hosts Baylor at 6:30 p.m.
*TCU is 9-2 this year, 17-2 in its last 19 games and 21-3 over the last two seasons.
*TCU is 9-2 or better for the sixth time in the last eight years and 10th time overall in 15 seasons under head coach Gary Patterson.
*The Horned Frogs are looking to reach 10 wins for the sixth time in the last eight years and 10th time in the past 14 seasons under Patterson. Prior to his arrival on campus in 1998, TCU had just four 10-win seasons in its history.
*Patterson is 19-17 against ranked opponents. The Horned Frogs have won four of their last six games versus ranked teams.
*Patterson is 4-3 as a head coach versus Baylor and 4-3 in matchups with Bears’ counterpart Art Briles. Patterson was 2-0 versus Briles when Briles was at Houston (2003-07) and is 2-3 against Briles during his tenure in Waco (2008-present).
*TCU is 30-11 in regular-season games following a loss under Patterson.
*TCU is 8-6 in short-week games under Patterson.

HOME SWEET HOME
*In 15 seasons under head coach Gary Patterson, TCU is 73-14 at Amon G. Carter Stadium.
*The Horned Frogs have a 12-game home winning streak, trailing only Florida State (21) and Clemson (16) for the longest among Power 5 programs. TCU’s 12 straight home wins double the next closest Big 12 member (Oklahoma, 6).
*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.
*The Baylor game marks TCU’s fifth sellout in six home games this season.

SERIES NOTES
*Last year’s win gave Baylor a 52-51-7 lead in the all-time series.
*With 110 games played, TCU has faced Baylor more than any opponent in its history.
*The first game between TCU and Baylor was a scoreless tie in 1899.
*TCU is 25-28-4 in home games against the Bears and 26-24-1 on the road versus Baylor. The Horned Frogs and Bears tied in both neutral-site meetings.
*TCU has won four of the seven meetings with Baylor since the Southwest Conference dissolved after the 1995 campaign. The Horned Frogs are 1-2 versus the Bears in their Big 12 era.

FORMER CROSSTOWN RIVALS
*After being founded in 1873 in Thorp Spring, Texas, as AddRan Male and Female College, TCU’s campus moved to Waco in 1895.
*The name was changed to AddRan Christian University in 1889 and Texas Christian University in 1902.
*TCU relocated to downtown Fort Worth in 1910 when the Waco facility burned. The University then opened three new buildings on its present campus in 1911.

TCU NOTABLES
*TCU is the only team in the top 3 in the Big 12 in total offense (588.2 ypg) and total defense (402.3). The Horned Frogs are second in both categories. TCU is second nationally in total offense.
*TCU has scored a first-quarter touchdown in a nation’s-best 24 consecutive games. It’s a Big 12 record and the FBS’ second-longest streak since 1996 (Stanford, 25, 2009-11).
*The Horned Frogs have allowed a combined 13 first downs in the second half of their last three games. TCU has surrendered just 52 second-half points in its last seven contests.

*Aaron Green ran for 127 yards at Oklahoma to become the first Horned Frog since 2010 to top 1,000 yards in a season. Green’s fifth 100-yard effort on the year gives him 1,100 yards in 2015.
*Jaden Oberkrom’s 75 field goals are tied with Oklahoma’s Michael Hunnicutt (2011-14) for the Big 12 career record.
