There’s exactly one Friday night game on the FBS schedule in Week 2. Unfortunately, Mother Nature has decided to make an appearance yet again and push back the gridiron proceedings.
No. 16 TCU’s game against SMU had been scheduled to kick off shortly after 8 p.m. ET tonight. Because of weather — lightning specifically — around Dallas’ Gerald J. Ford Stadium, however, the start of the Battle for the Iron Skillet has been delayed.
The Horned Frogs and Mustangs have met 97 times previously, with the former holding a 50-40-7 edge in the rivalry. TCU has also won six in a row in the series and 16 of the last 18 meetings.
With No. 4 Ohio State on tap next week, though, some observers view this as a potential trap game for a TCU squad that could be peeking ahead to one of the biggest non-conference matchups this season.
