Texas Christian University has joined the Big 12 Conference with teams such as West Virginia University, Texas Tech and the University of Texas at Austin. These new teams will draw in more fans for TCU, including Texas Wesleyan students.

I have never seen a TCU football game because I was not interested in the other teams they played against. Since they are now in the Big 12, I will definitely go watch their games. TCU gives Wesleyan students another outlet to entertain themselves and meet new people.

Tailgating alone is a fun experience. This is where drinking, socializing and watching a good football game all happens in the parking lot of the TCU Amon G. Carter Stadium.

With Wesleyan being so close to TCU, it is convenient for students to make the drive to check out the new competition. Some games are already sold out because people are excited about new conference play, but students can always tailgate outside the stadium whether the game is sold out or not.

I don’t know about you, but I would much rather watch a TCU vs. UT football game than a TCU vs. Boise State game. The competition is better and will bring a completely different experience.

Although football is in season right now, shortly basketball will begin, and I can’t wait to watch when TCU plays some of these Big 12 schools, such as Kansas University and Oklahoma State University.
TCU allows Wesleyan students to not only go to a bigger school event and get the “big college” sports experience but also get the chance to meet new people and have another off-campus place to have fun.
