The final month of the regular season schedule began on a high note for head coach Steve Sarkisian and Texas football with the first road win for this team in more than a full calendar year. Texas got itself back in Big 12 title contention and set up a massive game in Austin in Week 11 thanks to a big win over the No. 13 ranked Kansas State Wildcats and head coach Chris Klieman in Manhattan last weekend.

Sark and the Longhorns notched the aforementioned win over Kansas State on Nov. 5 by a narrow final score of 34-27. That win over Kansas State puts Texas at a mark of 6-3 (4-2 Big 12) on the season heading into the biggest home conference game of the season to date.

Texas is set to face new head coach Sonny Dykes and the No. 4 ranked TCU Horned Frogs on Nov. 12, where the set of ESPN College GameDay is expected on campus for the second time this season.

TCU comes into this game with a record of 9-0 (6-0 Big 12) following a 34-24 win at home at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth on Nov. 5 over the Texas Tech Red Raiders. The Horned Frogs just notched its first top-four ranking since the 2017 season this week.

Here’s a look at the TV/streaming information and game time as Texas gets set to host TCU in a massive Big 12 affair at home at Darrell K. Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin in primetime on Nov. 12.

For the second time this season, Texas will host a top-five-ranked opponent at DKR. The first top-five opponent Texas faced this season was on Sep. 10, in the tight one-point loss to the Alabama Crimson Tide. College GameDay was also in Austin for Texas-Alabama.

And this will be the second primetime Big 12 game played in Austin so far this season, with the first coming against the West Virginia Mountaineers on Oct. 1.

Texas vs. TCU series history

Texas owns the edge over TCU in the all-time series between these two teams, with a record of 64-27-1. And the Longhorns won last season’s meeting against the Horned Frogs, which came by one score in Fort Worth.

But Texas and TCU have split the last four matchups in this series.

And Texas could have an edge in this game, as it opened as a touchdown favorite over TCU coming out of the big road win over Kansas State last weekend.

According to the ESPN Football Power Index, Texas has a 73.0 percent chance of beating TCU.

If Texas wins this matchup against TCU, that could move the team into sole possession of second place in the Big 12. That would also put the Longhorns in a position to control its own destiny to get a spot in the Big 12 Championship Game.
