TCU football team update
Coming to the game, The Horned Frogs are 2-0 all-time with BNK at their game, defeating Texas Tech at home and winning at Baylor last season. TCU finished last season 13-2 and lost to Georgia 65-7 in College Football National Championship Game.
The 2022 season was a memorable one for the Frogs as they became the first program from the Texas state to progress to the College Football Playoff and from the Big 12 to play in the CFP National Championship with a 51-45 semifinal win against Michigan in the Vrbo Fiesta Bowl, TCU became one of just seven programs nationally to win a CFP game.
This season, TCU has its first preseason ranking for the first time since 2018, No. 17 by the Associated Press and 16 in the USA Today Coaches Poll. Last season, TCU was picked seventh before playing in the College Football Playoff National Championship and was placed fifth in the Big 12 preseason poll.
Regarding the upcoming game, TCU opened its last season against the same opponent and, for the second straight fall, will open the season against Buffalos, their Big 12 rivals, next year when Buffaloes join the conference.
Before the game, TCU was on an eight-game winning streak, the sixth-longest among Power 5 programs. They can extend it further as four opening five games this season are scheduled at home.
Talking more about TCU’s winning streak, dating back to 2003, they’re nine games unbeaten against Pac-12 opponents (2 wins at home, three on the road, and four at neutral venues).
TCU will take the field against Colorado pretty confident, given their recent record in season openers. They have won eight of the last nine, 17 of the previous 20, and 20 of its last 21 openers at home. Overall, they’re 77-40-9 in such games.
Looking at the TCU roster, Mark Perry, last year’s second-leading tackler for the Frogs (84 stops), has played three seasons (2019-21) at Colorado, where he had a team-best three interceptions for the Buffs in 2021 while placing third with 72 tackles.
In total, just eleven starters have returned from last season, but they’ve hit the transfer portal hard and have added a lot of depth to their roster. What remains to be seen is how much the absence of Kendre Miller affects them.
Colorado Buffaloes team update
On the other hand, Colorado Buffaloes will enter the season opener with high expectations to them, given the good results and rise in their fame in recent times.
The Buffaloes finished tied for 11th in the Pac-12 at 1-8 and 1-11 overall in 2022 and will be moving to the Big 12 next season. They were the original members of the Big 12 before moving back to the Pac-12 in 2011.
After losing the previous season-opener against the same opponent, the Buffaloes would be looking to start ‘Coach Prime’ Sanders Era on a good note by registering their first win over TCU in program history, and a win tonight would be Colorado’s seventh in the last eight such games
This season marks the first time that ‘The Buffs ‘ will be televised on FOX’s Noon window for the first two games. It’s also worth mentioning that this year will mark the 100th season of Colorado Football at Folsom Feld when Nebraska will visit Boulder for the week two fixture.
Looking at the roster, the Buffs feature 87 newcomers this season, including 68 scholarship newcomers. Nine scholarship holders and 25 overall players have returned from the last season.
As mentioned above, Colorado is enjoying the fame phase under Coach Prime as it became the first nationwide to sell out its season ticket allotment (on April 17). Moreover, they’ve sold out their Spring Game and two of its first six games this season.
It’s also worth mentioning that since the appointment of Coach Prime, the Buffs have added more than 1 million followers on their football social media handles. They have seen a 525% increase in merchandise sales and are one of just four programs (Nebraska, Notre Dame, and Texas Tech) to have the first two games of the season on ESPN.
