Horned Frog Soccer Releases 2012 Schedule
June 6, 2012
FORT WORTH, Texas - TCU women's soccer coach Eric Bell announced Wednesday the schedule for the 2012 season.
The Horned Frogs' home slate includes 10 matches at Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium, while TCU will travel outside of Texas only twice during non-conference play.
This season's schedule features a trio of teams the Horned Frogs have never met on the pitch. Montana, West Virginia and Kansas will all come to Fort Worth.
The Horned Frogs open the season Aug. 17 on the road, traveling to Albuquerque to battle former Mountain West rival and reigning MW champion New Mexico. The Lobos are one of eight NCAA tournament teams TCU will square off against in 2012.
The Purple and White will debut the 2012 roster to their home crowd on Aug. 24, taking on Montana during the TCU Invitational. The home opener is scheduled to start at 7:30 p.m. TCU will conclude play in the Invitational against Stephen F. Austin on Aug. 26, before traveling to Rice on Aug. 31.
TCU will spend the first two weeks of September at home, hosting Nevada (Sept. 2), SMU (Sept. 7), Texas State (Sept. 9) and Houston Baptist (Sept. 14). The Horned Frogs will hit the road for the final two non-conference games of the season against North Texas (Sept. 16) and Denver (Sept. 21).
TCU will close September at home as it opens its first season in the Big 12 Conference against West Virginia on Sept. 28 and Kansas on Sept. 30.
The Horned Frogs will hit the road for a three-game stretch against Iowa State (Oct. 5), Oklahoma State (Oct. 12) and Oklahoma (Oct. 14). This will be the third-straight year TCU will face OSU, but the first as a conference rival.
The Horned Frogs will then head back home to play Texas Tech for the 10th season in a row on Oct. 19. TCU will honor its senior class and conclude the home schedule at Garvey-Rosenthal Soccer Stadium on Oct. 21 versus Texas at 1 p.m. The regular season will close Oct. 26 at Baylor.
The Big 12 Championship is set for Oct. 31-Nov. 4 in San Antonio.
