CFP: #3 TCU Horned Frogs vs. #2 Michigan Wolverines

(WBAP/KLIF) — No. 2 Michigan and No. 3 TCU meet for the first time Saturday at the Fiesta Bowl. It is a matchup of one of college football’s bluest blue bloods and the most unlikely team ever to reach the College Football Playoff. The game can be heard live on WBAP beginning at 2:00 p.m. with the pregame.

The Horned Frogs became just the second team to reach the final four after starting the season unranked. The first was Michigan last year. Michigan is the winningest program in college football history. TCU played in three conferences over 16 years before landing in the Big 12 11 years ago. It was picked to finish seventh in the league this year.

TCU head coach Sonny Dykes said TCU will honor the late Mike Leach with pirate flag helmet stickers. “He was a big impact on me and, really, football in general,” Dykes said. Dykes is one of many successful proteges of Leach coaching throughout college football. The Mississippi State coach, and former Texas Tech and Washington State coach, died earlier this month of a heart condition at age 61.

“I’m sure it’ll be a little bit of shoutout to coach Leach before I take the field,” Dykes said. “Certainly wouldn’t be here without his guidance and mentorship.”
