Although undefeated TCU has yet to finish up the remainder of its season, the Horned Frogs’ 2018 football schedule has already been finalized — one that includes 2014 National Champion Ohio State. 

TCU’s home opener is set for Sept. 1 against Southern, followed by a Sept. 8 game at SMU. Then, for the first time since 1973, TCU will face off against Ohio State on Sept. 15 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington. This meeting will mark the seventh time that the Horned Frogs and Buckeyes have played one another. Ohio State is currently 6-1 — its lone loss came against TCU’s Big 12 counterpart, Oklahoma.

Conference play for TCU begins Sept. 22 at Texas, and the season closes with a matchup against Oklahoma State on Nov. 24. The Big 12 Championship game will be held at AT&T Stadium on Dec. 1.
