TCU Tailgating at Amon G. Carter Stadium for 2012 Season


Texas Christian University’s football program has risen from BCS buster to undeniable contender in recent years. With seven AP top ten finishes in the last ten years and a Rose Bowl win in 2011, it’s safe to say the Horned Frogs are not to be taken lightly. If nothing else, their introduction to the Big 12 Conference in 2012 proves that they can compete with the best teams in the nation. Obviously, it’s a good time to be a TCU fan, not just to see a great team in action every week, but for the overall gameday experience, which is without question, one of the finest in all of college football and with the help of’s Premium and Ultimate Gameday Experiences, it can be truly unforgettable.

You will want to be in Fort Worth for the Frog’s home opener against Grambling State on September 8th because TCU gameday is a thing to behold. Thousands of Frog fans tailgate at parking lots near the stadium while local bands rock out at “Frog Alley” located along the east side of Amon G. Carter Stadium. And don’t forget, you’re in Texas. Great barbeque comes with the territory. Just the sight and aroma of succulent baby back ribs, tender smoked brisket and juicy burgers will get your mouth watering and get you ready for Horned Frogs football. There is also sure to be an array of tasty eats and refreshing drinks waiting for Premium and Ultimate Gameday Experience fans in the Hospitality Tent near the stadium. Just show the passes that came with your package and you are in. Of course, with the perks don’t end there. Also included in the deal is a pregame tour of the stadium, some TCU swag and for the Ultimate Experiencers, access to the field before the game.

Eating is a tradition itself in the great state of Texas, but TCU has many of its own rituals that make gameday special. You’re sure to spot the purple and white Tailgating Command Unit, aka Frog Mobile, a converted ambulance decked out with plasma screens and internal storage for grills, tents and chairs. You may also have a run in with one the NCAA’s most popular mascots, Super Frog, who will be sure to entertain the younger fans, as well as die hard Frog supporters. Then of course, there’s the famous “Horned Frog” sign donned by the true loyal TCU fanatics. Whether it’s used to celebrate a touchdown or as a simple greeting to fellow Frogs, the symbol is seen throughout the day, so be sure to look for it at all TCU home games, six of which have experiences.
