TCU 2012 Football Schedule: Horned Frogs Will Host Oklahoma On Dec. 1

With the addition of TCU to the Big 12, DFW-area college football fans will have the chance to see far more Big 12 football in person in 2012.

In preparation for their jump to a BCS conference, the Horned Frogs began renovating Amon G. Carter Stadium in late 2010. The construction, which will cost the school $165 million, is set to be finished by the Horned Frogs home opener on Sep. 17 against Louisiana-Monroe, and will push capacity from 50,000 to over 70,000.

The big question for the small private school will be whether their comparatively small alumni base will be able to fill all the new seats, especially against state schools like Texas and Oklahoma with huge alumni contingents in the DFW metroplex.

TCU will travel to Austin to play the Longhorns on Nov. 24 and will host the Sooners on Dec. 1 as part of their 2012 conference schedule:

September 15: at Kansas

October 6: Iowa State

October 13: at Baylor

October 20: Texas Tech

October 27: at Oklahoma State

November 3: at West Virginia

November 10: Kansas State

November 24: at Texas

December 1: Oklahoma
