TCU-Baylor opener moved up to Friday night for TV

The season-opening game between TCU and Baylor has been moved up
a day for a national television broadcast.

ESPN will televise the Friday night, Sept. 2 matchup of bowl
teams.

Rose Bowl champion TCU was 13-0 last season and No. 2 in the
final AP Top 25 poll. Going into their final season in the Mountain
West Conference, the Horned Frogs have 25 consecutive
regular-season wins and 39 in 42 games overall.

Baylor was 7-6 last season and played in the Texas Bowl, the Big
12 team’s first bowl game since 1994.

The game will be the first of three Friday night games next
season for TCU. The Frogs host SMU on Sept. 30 on CBS Sports
Network, then play BYU at Cowboys Stadium on Oct. 28 on ESPN.
