After ending their five-game homestand with a 2-4 loss against the No. 12 Oklahoma Sooners, the TCU Horned Frogs travel to Houston this weekend for a three-game series with the Cougars (13-14 on the season). After a hot start to the season, the Frogs (20-7, 5-2 in Mountain West Conference play) have cooled down quite a bit.
Ranked as high as No. 4 in some polls, TCU has fallen now to No. 11 in the national rankings.
The men's tennis team has quite a challenge ahead of it this week. The No. 66-ranked Horned Frogs will square off with two Mountain West Conference rivals, hosting the Utah Utes on Thursday and the Brigham Young Cougars on Saturday.
The Horned Frogs are 7-8 in match play on the season, 1-1 in conference and are looking to put together a significant string of wins, a feat they have yet to accomplish this semester. They are coming off a tough 4-3 loss against San Diego State on Sunday.
The TCU Horned Frogs faced one of the biggest challenges of the season on Tuesday night as the No. 12 Oklahoma Sooners came to Lupton Stadium for a one game series. The Horned Frogs came into the game after winning a hard series against Sand Diego State, taking two of three from the Aztecs. The Sooners gave up a three game sweep to Texas this weekend, and were looking to break their losing streak on Tuesday. Oklahoma took the game 4-2.
The TCU women's rifle team will host the NCAA Rifle Championships this weekend, as seven other teams from across the country (Alaska-Fairbanks, West Virginia, Kentucky, Army, Navy, Murray State and Nebraska) travel to Fort Worth to determine the best guns in the nation.
The rifle competition consists of two parts: the air rifle shooting and the smallbore. It takes place after an outstanding season by the Horned Frogs, where they only lost one head-to-head event, and earned first in the two major tournaments they entered.
The upcoming weekend is a busy one for the men's and women's tennis teams. The men's team will host the No. 24 Tulsa Golden Hurricane today, and the women will face the Texas A&M Aggies on Saturday and the Fighting Illini of the University of Illinois on Sunday.
The men's team boasts a 4-2 record in match play this season. Because of the recent stretch of bad weather, the Horned Frogs haven't played a match in almost two weeks.
Head coach Dave Borelli said Tulsa is probably a better team than its No. 24 ranking indicates.
The baseball season has just begun, and already the Horned Frogs are facing one of the biggest series of their year. This weekend, the Frogs will travel to Fullerton, Calif. for a three-game series against the Titans of Cal State Fullerton.
The No. 6 Titans (1-2) took two hard losses last weekend against Oregon and Pepperdine. TCU is coming off a dominant three-game sweep against Sam Houston State to open the season. During last season's opening series, the Frogs took two of three from Fullerton.
