The TCU Horned Frogs entered Saturday looking to get an upset win over the No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners.
The TCU Horned Frogs wanted to do what the Purdue Boilermakers did to the Iowa Hawkeyes did earlier today — upset a AP Top 4 team. They had the chance to do so on Saturday night when they visited the No. 4 Oklahoma Sooners on the road.
With the game being the primetime game on ABC, there are going to be a ton of eyes on the Horned Frogs. Some are probably wondering — what does TCU stand for?
What does TCU stand for in college football?
TCU stands for Texas Christian University. Here is the full explanation provided the school’s admissions office:
"TCU is Texas Christian University. Our middle name comes from our historic relationship with the Christian Church (Disciples of Christ), a Protestant denomination known for a broad interpretation and respect for diverse faith traditions. TCU welcomes students of all faiths – and of none. Students take one religion studies course as part of the liberal arts and sciences core curriculum. TCU does not seek to impose a particular religious point of view, but challenges each student to consider what he or she believes."
So there you have it. Texas Christian University gets shortened down to the initials and you have one of the notable Big 12 teams in college football. Cue “The More You Know” GIF.
