The meaning of «2015 tcu horned frogs football team»

The 2015 TCU Horned Frogs football team represented Texas Christian University (TCU) in the 2015 NCAA Division I FBS football season. The 120th TCU football team played as a member of the Big 12 Conference (Big 12), led by 15th-year head coach Gary Patterson. The Horned Frogs played their home games at Amon G. Carter Stadium in Fort Worth, Texas.

TCU (11–2, 7–2) finished the season ranked #7 in the nation after a victory in the Alamo Bowl. The season marked the Horned Frogs' fifth top-10 finish and sixth top-15 finish in the last 8 seasons. The Horned Frogs notched their sixth 11+ win season in the last 8 years and their tenth 10+ win season in the 15-year Gary Patterson era.

The 2014 TCU Horned Frogs football team notched a 12–1 record and finished the season ranked #3. The Horned Frogs introduced a new, up-tempo offense in 2014 under new co-offensive coordinators Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie, led by junior quarterback Trevone Boykin, who finished 4th in the 2014 Heisman Trophy voting. The Frogs' sole loss came at #5 Baylor, 58–61. TCU knocked off three top-10 teams during their 2014 campaign, #4 Oklahoma, #7 Kansas State and #9 Ole Miss. During the regular season, the Horned Frogs ranked as high as #3 in the College Football Playoff Rankings and were in the mix to be included in the inaugural, 4-team College Football Playoff. In the next-to-last CFP rankings, the Frogs checked in at #3; however, even after a decisive 55–3 win over Iowa State in the final week, the College Football Playoff Selection Committee dropped the Big 12 Co-Champion Horned Frogs from #3 to #6, and out of the Playoff, in the final regular-season rankings. The Horned Frogs were invited to play in the 2014 Peach Bowl, in Atlanta, Georgia, against the Ole Miss Rebels of the SEC. The Horned Frogs shut down the Rebel offense and picked apart the vaunted Ole Miss defense in a decisive 42–3 TCU victory.

National Signing Day unofficially kicked off the new season on February 5, 2015. The Horned Frogs inked 21 high school seniors to National Letters of Intent and added two additional playmakers by grayshirt.[1] Hoping to build on the success of the new up-tempo offense installed by Co-Offensive Coordinators Doug Meacham and Sonny Cumbie in 2014, the 2015 signing class included six wide receivers. Three signees graduated from high school in December 2014 and enrolled at TCU for the spring term.

In addition to the above-listed signees, TCU added consensus 3-star wide receive Darrion Flowers (5'9", 170, Sam Houston HS, Arlington, TX), who accepted a track and field scholarship for 2015–16 and will join the football team before the 2016 season. Similarly, TCU added kicker Jonathan Song (5'9", 160, All Saints HS, Fort Worth, TX), who will also grayshirt during the 2015–16 season and count against the 2016 recruiting class. Flowers and Song will fill areas of need in 2016 after the loss of PK, P, and WRs at the conclusion of the 2015 season.
