Texas Tech-Texas Thanksgiving Day Game A Possibility
Kirk Bohls of the Austin American-Statesman reported Tuesday that the University of Texas Football team would continue its tradition of playing a game on Thanksgiving Day and Texas Tech appears to be the replacement for Texas A&M.
TCU will likely assume the schedule left by the Aggies, but the Frogs look very unlikely to be the team Texas plays on Thanksgiving.
TCU Athletic Director Chris Del Conte said, “We just got in, and we’re thrilled to play all the participants. It doesn’t matter whom we play on any given Saturday. We’ll be ready to roll.”
A likely scenario for TCU could be a match up with Baylor on Thanksgiving weekend and given the nature this season’s game where Baylor ended TCU’s 13 game winning streak 50-48 in Waco could bolster the former Southwest Conference rivalry into something bigger in the Big 12 Conference.
Other Big 12 Conference games of note played over the holiday weekend this season include Kansas vs. Missouri November 26th in Kansas City and Texas Tech vs. Baylor at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington.
