The last time TCU won a national championship in football was 1938. The Horned Frogs went undefeated that year, beating a school named Carnegie Mellon in the Sugar Bowl. Dutch Meyer was the Horned Frogs’ head coach. The legendary Davey O’Brien was the quarterback.
It’s taken 76 years, but the Horned Frogs are now within spitting distance of competing for another national crown.
TCU slid back into the top 4 in the College Football Playoff poll on Tuesday — and did so emphatically, leap-frogging the only remaining undefeated team in FBS, Florida State, and moving into the No. 3 spot. If the season ended today, the Horned Frogs would be playing Oregon in a national semifinal game.
