The TCU Horned Frogs will play at the Texas Longhorns on Thanksgiving, according to the 2012 Big 12 Football Media Guide that was released today.
Texas will host TCU at Darrell K. Royal – Texas Memorial Stadium on Thursday, Nov. 22. TCU, who officially joined the Big 12 on July 1, replaces Texas’ annual holiday weekend game against the Texas A&M Aggies.
Word first surfaced in December that the two schools might meet on Thanksgiving, but this is the first time that the Big 12 Conference has acknowledged the change.
The Longhorns lead the overall series against the Horned Frogs 61-20-1. The two schools last met in 2007 in Austin. Texas won that game 34-13.
Kickoff time and television coverage for the TCU at Texas game will be announced at a later date.
Prior to that contest, TCU and Texas played home-and-home every year from 1927 through 1995 as both schools were members of the old Southwest Conference.
The Big 12 Media Guide also lists a date change for the West Virginia at Iowa State match-up. The game has been moved up one day and will now be played on Friday, Nov. 23 at 3:30 p.m. ET (ABC).
West Virginia will be playing their first season in the Big 12 and has never faced Iowa State.
