Thursday at The Carter

The Horned Frogs return to Amon G. Carter Stadium Oct. 11 to host the Texas Tech University Red Raiders. Game time is 6:30 p.m., and TCU parking lots will open three hours before kickoff and remain open for up to 90 minutes after the game.

Four F-16 planes will fly over the stadium just a few minutes before kickoff, and there will be fireworks presentations during the performance of the Star-Spangled Banner, after each touchdown and after a game win.

If you plan to attend the game, only the following items are permitted within Amon G. Carter Stadium:

  • Bags that are clear plastic, vinyl or PVC and not exceeding 14 inches by 14 inches
  • One-gallon clear plastic freezer bags (Ziploc bag or similar)
  • One unopened bottle of water
  • Small clutch bags, approximately the size of a hand, with or without a handle or strap with one of the clear plastic bags

Exceptions will be granted for medically necessary items after proper inspection at the stadium gates. Backpacks, diaper bags and other similar bags are not permitted.

Please visit for the full 2018 football schedule and for tailgating and parking information.

Sticking to the sidewalk

The Unbound Light Up the Dark 5K will be held on campus Oct. 13. The race, which begins at 2 p.m. and is expected to culminate by 10 p.m., starts and ends on the Campus Commons, and follows the sidewalks along University Drive, Stadium Drive and W. Cantey Street.

There will be increased traffic on campus, but we do not anticipate overflow into neighborhoods. Should you have any questions, please contact TCU Police at 817-257-7777.

Coming home

This year’s Homecoming weekend takes place Oct. 19-21 and will feature reunions, concerts and, of course, football. Join members of the Horned Frog family who return to campus to celebrate the spirit of TCU.
