NCAA Football – 1983 – SWC Game Of Week – Texas Longhorns Vs TCU Horned Frogs – 4th Qtr

DOG ASIDE:   

Back in the days of the fabled Soutwest Conference….known for its hard-nosed football and long standing rivalries….you could always bet that any inter-conference match-up would be a test of will and character….regardless of the talent of each team taking the field….and this 1983 SWC Game of the Week on Home Sports Entertainment Network was definitely no exception….as the Texas Longhorns entered the game at 8 – 0 and ranked # 2 in the country….while the TCU Horned Frogs were trudging through a horrible season at 1 – 6 when entering this game with their longtime rival Longhorns. 

This game was played on November 12, 1983 at Texas Memorial Stadium in Austin, TX in front of 61,156 Longhorn fans….as the Frogs were overwhelming underdogs coming into the game…..but by the end of the 3rd Quarter….TCU was more than competitive….as they were behind 20 – 14 entering the 4th Quarter…. while playing with a strong will and consistent tenacity….which would continue through the balance of the game….which makes this video well worth the watch.
