History says ESPN’s decision to send College GameDay to TCU this week bodes very well for the Horned Frogs.
TCU is undefeated when its game is featured on GameDay. That includes a 4-0 record when GameDay is on the campus where the Frogs are playing, plus a 1-0 mark when GameDay attended the Rose Bowl when TCU played Wisconsin.
Here’s every TCU game College GameDay has attended, along with the results:
|Oct. 24, 2009||No. 7 TCU at No. 16 BYU||TCU, 38-7|
|Nov. 14, 2009||No. 16 Utah at No. 4 TCU||TCU, 55-28|
|Nov. 6, 2010||No. 3 TCU at No. 5 Utah||TCU, 47-7|
|Jan. 1, 2011||No. 3 TCU vs. No. 5 Wisconsin (Rose Bowl)||TCU, 21-19|
|Nov. 1, 2014||No. 7 TCU at No. 20 West Virginia||TCU, 31-30|
This week’s game against West Virginia will be the second time ever GameDay has broadcast from TCU’s campus. It’s the second time the GameDay crew will be on hand for a game between the Frogs and Mountaineers.
The Frogs’ average margin of victory in those previous five games was 20.2 points. Maybe the Mountaineers should be concerned.
TCU and West Virginia will kick off at 2:30 p.m. CT on FS1.
