Modern college football bears little resemblance to football in the early 1900s, when quarterbacks were routinely sacked by crashing Wright Brothers prototypes. Watch players toss the pigskin without worrying about a pioneer’s tomfoolery with today’s Groupon: for $15, you get one upper reserved box ticket to a TCU football game (a $30 value) at Amon G. Carter Stadium. Choose one of the following games:
- Saturday, October 23, against the Air Force, at 7 p.m.
- Saturday, November 13, against San Diego State, at 3 p.m.
The 2010 TCU Horned Frogs Football squadron has its sights on a second-straight Mountain West Conference championship and yet another prestigious BCS bowl berth. Watch the graceful execution and gridiron toughness of a team that's been ranked in the AP and USA Today top 10 rankings all year, as the TCU Horned Frogs take on the Air Force Falcons and their impressive running game on October 23, and the revitalized San Diego State Aztecs on November 13. This year's squad is led by the duel speedsters in sophomore running backs Ed Wesley and Matthew Tucker, each displaying the nimbleness and grit of a Russian mercenary-turned-ballerina. Be in the presence of head coach/football sensei Gary Patterson, coming off a slew of National Coach of the Year honors in 2009, as he looks to keep TCU atop the national polls with powerhouses like Alabama, Florida, and the Lubbock Academy of Botanists.
Before the game, head over to the free Frog Alley, which opens two hours before kickoff. There, you'll find jovial live music, a plethora of inflatable games, and the chance to take part in the football toss. And once inside Amon G. Carter Stadium, you'll have a full view of the entire field, so you can spot the linebackers' coach rallying his troops on one sideline, and the defensive linemen crafting origami art on the other. To find your seats, check the seating chart on the TCU football website.
