TCU Head Coach Gary Patterson Urges Texans to Wear Masks

NCAA Football: Alamo Bowl-Stanford vs Texas Christian

As the coronavirus continues to hamper our return to normalcy, including the sports world, many of us are holding our breath that the college football season does not get affected.

At this point, I’ll take a guarantee that the games get played with little or no fans that risk the idea of having fans there if it means games might be moved or missed.

As a result, mask requirements are popping up in cities and municipalities across the country. All this being said, while COVID should continue to be taken seriously, there is certainly news that is not getting as much reporting, such as the CDC estimating there are now ten times as many cases in the US as our testing has uncovered.

Regardless, we all want to do our part to make sure we get back to “normal” as soon as possible.


So TCU head coach Gary Patterson is making a recommendation to all that people make sure to wear their masks, and he shared those thoughts on social media on Monday morning.

Patterson and the Horned Frogs are hoping to take a big step forward after two-straight mediocre seasons in Fort Worth. We are currently ranking the Top 10 non-conference games in the Big 12 and TCU vs. SMU comes in at No. 7 on our list.

TCU is scheduled to open the season on Saturday, September 5th at Cal.
