*TCU has an eight-game winning streak in regular-season contests after an open date.
*TCU is 28-10 in regular-season games following a loss under Patterson.
*Patterson is 4-1 as a head coach versus Baylor and 4-1 in matchups with Bears' head coach Art Briles. Patterson was 2-0 versus Briles when Briles was at Houston (2003-07) and is 2-1 against Briles during his tenure at Baylor (2008-present).
*TCU is playing its second season in Amon G. Carter Stadium after its $164 million rebuild.
*Saturday's game is sold out, giving the Horned Frogs a 16th sellout in their last 20 home dates.
*TCU is 61-13 under Patterson at Amon G. Carter Stadium.

SENIOR CLASS SUPERLATIVES
*TCU's senior class, comprised of just 16 players with only 10 on scholarship, will be recognized in a pre-game ceremony.
*The 2013 seniors have a 35-15 record while taking part in two conference championships and winning the 2011 Rose Bowl.
*The seniors are 3-1 against top-five ranked opponents, 2-1 in bowl games and 17-6 at Amon G. Carter Stadium.

SERIES NOTES
*Last year's 49-21 TCU win over Baylor gave the Horned Frogs a 51-50-7 edge in the all-time series. The first game was a scoreless tie in 1899.
*TCU is 25-27-4 in home games against the Bears and 26-23-1 on the road versus Baylor. The Horned Frogs and Bears tied in both neutral-site meetings.
*With 108 games played between the schools, TCU has faced Baylor more than any other opponent in its history.
*TCU and Baylor met the last two years in Waco. The 2011 matchup, a 50-48 Bears' win, was a non-conference game with TCU in its final season in the Mountain West. Last year's 49-21 TCU victory came in the schools' first meeting as Big 12 rivals.
*TCU has won four of the five meetings with Baylor since the Southwest Conference dissolved after the 1995 campaign.

A MARQUEE QB MATCHUP
*TCU's last home game versus Baylor was in the 2010 season with Andy Dalton and Robert Griffin III behind center for their respective teams.
*TCU built a 35-3 halftime lead in winning 45-10.
*Dalton set a TCU single-game record for completion percentage (91.3) by connecting on 21-of-23 attempts for 267 yards and two touchdowns. He completed his first 11 passes with both scoring tosses going to Jeremy Kerley.

AWARD WATCH

*Since 2012, Verrett leads the nation with 36 passes defended (8 interceptions, 28 pass breakups).

TCU NOTABLES

*TCU is the only team in the nation to rank in the top five in interceptions (tied for 4th, 18) and tackles for loss (5th, 90) and the top 10 in turnovers gained (tied for 7th, 27).
*Casey Pachall is tied with Slingin' Sammy Baugh (1934-36) for fourth in career touchdown passes (40) at TCU.
