Feb. 27, 2014
FORT WORTH, Texas - No. 8 TCU will close out non-conference play Saturday afternoon against cross-town foe SMU at Sleepy P Ranch. Start time is set for 10:00 a.m. CT in Bartonville.
Fresh off a 12-8 victory over nationally ranked Oklahoma State last weekend, the Horned Frogs, who currently sit in second-place in the Big 12 standings, will look to improve 7-4 overall and claim their first road victory of the year against the Mustangs.
"We are very excited to compete against SMU this weekend at their new facility,” said Western Head Coach Kindel Walter. “It will be our first time competing against them with a Western team and we are very much looking forward to it. We had some great rides against Oklahoma State and can't wait to build off that, not only for this meet, but also for the rest of the semester. We are practicing really hard and looking forward to the friendly match-up."
