The highly anticipated matchup between the national runner-up TCU Horned Frogs and the BIG 12 newcomer BYU Cougars has TCU taking steps to ensure that their stadium remains a sea of purple for the game.
According to a report by the Deseret News, TCU is offering a unique ticketing option for their home games against in-state rival Texas and BYU. Dubbed the “Keep It Purple Plan,” this is the only option available for fans looking to purchase single-game tickets for these highly anticipated matchups.
As per TCU’s ticketing website, tickets purchased through this plan cannot be resold, which ensures that TCU fans have the upper hand in securing tickets. It’s a strategic move by the university, as BYU fans have a reputation for traveling well and showing up in droves to away games. According to former BYU offensive line coach and current Baylor coach Eric Mateos, this isn’t the first time the Horned Frogs have done this to fellow Big 12 fan bases.
They did the same this past season with other B12 schools (Tech for sure)
