TCU @ SMU: 100th Anniversary Game
Fort Worth based Texas Christian (2-0) and Dallas based Southern Methodist (3-0) will be playing another “Battle for the Iron Skillet” this Saturday in Fort Worth, in the 100th meeting between the two Texas schools. The two old Southwest Conference foes now play in two different conferences (Horned Frogs Big 12; Mustangs AAC) even through they are located just 35 miles apart. The series began in 1915, and while TCU leads 51-41-7, SMU is the current reigning champion, having won in the last meeting between the on Sept. 21, 2019. TCU is favored by 9.5 points. has won 15 of its last 21 regular season games following an open date, and HC Gary Patterson is 94-27 in games played at Amon G. Carter Stadium. SMU HC Sonny Dykes served as an offensive analyst for TCU before becoming the Mustangs' head coach.
I'm thinking the gal in this 1947 game program is from Dallas, not Fort Worth . . . but I could be wrong.
