The Lost History of Texas Tech and TCU

As TCU and Texas Tech square off in another battle of renewed rivalry, one writer argues for the full restoration and a recommissioned trophy

It's too easy to say "another rival, another history lesson."

No, my friends, this lesson comes with a bit of impassioned plea. As I've said several times in person, and on Twitter...

BRING BACK THE DAMN SADDLE TROPHY.

The Saddle Trophy - a far too short-lived trophy - was part of a campaign in the 1960s to name the TCU-Texas Tech rivalry "The West Texas Championship of the Southwest Conference."

That's a darn fine name to this rivalry, and I advocate for the official name to return alongside that glorious trophy.

This campaign is where this rivalry history lesson shall begin for this week's matchup.

***Before we proceed though, I would like to give a shoutout and credit to Denton Techsan from the Raider Power forums (a part of the Scout network), who provided several points of research into the history of this majestic trophy, which helped make this article happen.***

Once upon a time - the summer of 1961 to be specific - Texas Tech's student body government came up with the idea of a traveling trophy for the TCU rivalry. On Aug. 21 of that year, Tech student body president Carlyle Smith wrote an editorial in Tech's student newspaper, The Toreador, advocating for the trophy.

After getting the approval of Texas Tech and TCU athletic directors Polk Robinson and Dutch Meyer, as well as financial sponsorships from the Lubbock Avalanche-Journal and the Fort Worth Star-Telegram, the Texas Tech student body helped in selecting a saddle as the trophy to be exchanged each year.

The first official mention of the Saddle in a major publication was on Oct. 12, 1961, when the Lubbock Avalanche Journal previewed the upcoming TCU-Tech matchup, and cited September 24 as the official approval date from both TCU and Texas Tech's student bodies. TCU would win the first matchup with the official trophy, and took the Saddle home to Fort Worth to display for the year.

Ten games would be played for the Saddle, but after the 1970 game (a 22-14 Texas Tech win), the Saddle disappeared from Texas Tech's trophy case, literally lost into the black hole abyss of Southwest Conference folklore.

There's little to no mention of the trophy until 1995, when Jim Carlen - Texas Tech's head football coach in 1970 - claimed he didn't know anything about a trophy during an interview with the Avalanche-Journal. The original trophy still has not been seen or heard from since.

Today, according to TCU athletic director Chris Del Conte, there's been at least "discussions" between the universities about the Saddle Trophy and the recommissioning of the trophy.

But as tomorrow will be the 45th anniversary of the game where the trophy disappeared - and as it will be until it is restored - I again say that discussions are not enough.

It's time to bring that gloried leather saddle back into the fold and make it an exchanged spoil of war, and it's time again to refer back to this rivalry as its true name: The West Texas Championship.

The Very Beginning - 1926 matchup

Granted, the Saddle Trophy and the moniker of the “West Texas Championship” haven't been with TCU and Texas Tech forever. After all, the Frogs and Red Raiders* had already played 17 times by the time Texas Tech fully joined the Southwest Conference in 1960.

The asterisk, of course, comes because the Frogs were one of the first to play the Red Raiders well before Texas Tech went by that nickname. For the first five matchups between TCU and Texas Tech, the Frogs played the Texas Tech Matadors, with four games in Fort Worth and two in Lubbock from 1926 to 1936.

1926 was the second year of the Texas Tech football program, and the first year TCU played Texas Tech - then known as Texas Technological College. The first SWC team to schedule the team from Lubbock, TCU hosted the Matadors on Oct. 30 of that year.

Then under the guidance of head coach Edwin Y. Freeland - a former teammate of SMU head coach Ray Morrison and former TCU head coach - the Texas Tech Matadors went 6-1-3 as an independent program in that 1926 season, with their sole loss being a 28-16 loss to the Frogs.

In a unique situation, the Horned Frogs hold the distinction of being the first Division I college football team that Texas Tech scheduled and played. Abilene Christian had played Texas Tech before the Frogs did, but the Wildcats did not join Division I football until well into the 21st century.

It would be the start of TCU's best run against Texas Tech, winning the first five games of the series and outscoring the Matadors 120-28. To this day, TCU still has not had a better win streak against the Raiders, with the Frogs' three game win streak from 1958-60 being the closest TCU's been to replicating the streak.

By then though, the Frogs and Red Raiders were making memories as heated SWC foes.

SWC Days

In 1956, Texas Tech was admitted on a preliminary membership to the Southwest Conference, where the Red Raiders weren't eligible to compete for a title or 'official' conference games. Still though, TCU and Tech would still fight nearly annually until the Red Raiders became full SWC members in time for the 1960 season, with the Frogs taking three out of four against the Red Raiders during the probationary time.

The first years of the SWC match ups were arguably the best times for TCU, as the Frogs would take 10 out of 15 from 1958 to 1972. That winning period would soon be replicated and furthered by Texas Tech, as the Red Raiders would take charge of the series for the next 20+ years.

From 1973 to the dissolving of the Southwestern Conference in 1996, TCU would only get four wins against Texas Tech (1980, 1984, 1991, 1994), as the Red Raiders put together a 16-4-3 record against the Horned Frogs. TCU would win on the road only in 1991, which still to today is the only TCU win in Lubbock since 1972.

To be frankly honest, it's a little bit difficult to cite major, earth-shattering games between these two teams from this era. Both teams never reached high success during the final decades of the SWC, with very few upsets and very few season-changing performances.

Texas Tech's greatest teams, including the 11-1 Jim Carlen campaign in 1973, the 1976 season with Steve Sloan and 1989's Spike Dykes' led team all handled the Frogs with ease, while TCU's 1984 team led by running back Kenneth Davis trampled a weakened Red Raiders team that finished the season 4-7.

There's certainly lots to be remember in the eyes of players and coaches, but for the fans? What made the Texas Tech and TCU rivalry revived and full of bad blood was the Gary Patterson era, when he faced off against Mike Leach for two highly memorable games in the mid 2000s.

The Modern Rivalry Makes It Personal

In 2004 and 2006, TCU and Texas Tech featured a home-and-home series which set two dubious records.

In 2004, led by future TCU co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie at quarterback, Texas Tech welcomed the Frogs into Lubbock and sent them packing with the most amount of points given up in a single game in Gary Patterson's coaching career, as the Red Raiders smoked the Frogs 70-35.

It was an embarrassment for TCU, who started the game up 21-0, keeping Texas Tech's air raid contained for seven possessions.

It wouldn't be good enough, as the Red Raiders scored on five consecutive drives and put up 56 unanswered points en route to the win. Cumbie would finish the game with 441 yards of passing and four touchdowns.

To this day, Patterson refuses to talk about that game. But he got more than vocal in 2006 when Texas Tech went to Fort Worth.

Learning from his previous encounter, Patterson kept Mike Leach's offense out of the end zone for an entire game - the first time that had ever happened to the Pirate's scheme. After TCU came out with the 12-3 victory, Gary got into it with reporters who didn't give TCU much of a chance coming into the game.

Patterson came out with some of his greatest Pattersonisms in that press conference, including the slogan 'Make It Personal' and the always appropriate 'Speed, baby.'

The 2006 game certainly was personal for the Frogs, especially defensive back Marvin White, who laid the lumber on a Tech receiver in arguably the hardest hit in TCU school history.

When a win or loss is personally on an annual basis, that's what makes it a real rivalry - and the personal touch seemed to be missing until that pivotal 2006 game. Although the two teams never faced each other for several more years, there was still plenty of smack talk between the two fan bases, and neither side had anything particularly nice to say to one another.

Needless to say, given a vocal Patterson and an angry team who took the game personally, TCU was ready to face Texas Tech again soon. But, due to TV scheduling, the Frogs and Red Raiders wouldn't get to meet in 2010 as previously planned.

ESPN, who wanted to showcase Texas Tech against Texas at the same time as TCU-Texas Tech, helped arrange TCU's kickoff game against Oregon State during TCU's Rose Bowl year as a replacement game. Although the situation wasn't ideal, the marquee matchup was a fine replacement, and in the end, it was just business. There was nothing that seemed personal or petty about the exchange; there was just a conflict of ESPN.

The same cannot be said for the scheduling fiasco of 2011.

As the Big 12 moved from an eight-game conference format to a nine-game format that season, Texas Tech elected to withdraw from the TCU contest, instead choosing to play Texas State, Nevada and New Mexico.

What could (and probably should) have been just a technical issue became a war cry for the Frogs, as Tech's then-head coach Tommy Tuberville infamously stated that TCU is "not the type of team we want to play right now."

The move was seen by TCU fans as an act of cowardice, and not a move of a forced hand, as the Red Raiders administration tried to spin it. Without Tech on the schedule, and with two withdrawn games, there was understandable disappointment and anger when it came to TCU fans wanting to continue their revenge.

Thankfully though, It wouldn't be long before the Red Raiders and Frogs were forced to play one another again, as TCU accepted its Big 12 invite just a few months after Tuberville made his comments.

The Modern Rivalry: The Big 12 Era

If there wasn't already enough heat between these two rivals by 2012, substantially more rivalry hate was coming down the line with TCU's entrance into the Big 12.

Since being admitted into the conference, there's plenty of controversy and hot blood that's been (almost literally) exchanged between TCU and Texas Tech. In between the high-scoring affairs between the two schools, there have been three notable coaching swaps for the Frogs and Red Raiders in Chad Glasgow, Trey Haverty and Sonny Cumbie.

A long-time positional coach for TCU's defense, Chad Glasgow was Texas Tech's defensive coordinator for the 2011 season. He would quickly return to TCU in 2012 though, serving in the same position he held from 2001-10. Similarly, Texas Tech safeties coach Trey Haverty served multiple times as an assistant coach at TCU, both as a grad assistant and as a safeties/wide receivers coach.

Cumbie, as previously mentioned, was a previous Texas Tech quarterback who returned to Lubbock under Kliff Kingsbury's leadership. He quickly departed from the West Texas school, heading instead to work with Doug Meacham in creating TCU's new uptempo offensive scheme.

That offensive scheme has been a major part of TCU's last few games against Texas Tech, including a 56-53 thrilling triple overtime game and a school record setting 82-27 victory over the Raiders last year, including fastest usage of all the season's fireworks.

There's also another game that happened in 2013, but when a fox running on the field is about the eighth weirdest thing that happens in a game, is it really worth discussing?

The rivalry between Texas Tech and TCU has never burned hotter than it has since the Frogs and Red Raiders have played together in the Big 12. Given the defensive injuries of TCU this season, there's no reason to not bet the over when it comes to the total point spread. This game will be an explosive and fun time for everyone, and it's likely to take several years off the lives of Tech and TCU fans around the world.

Final notes

As we wrap up this lesson though, I will once again make my plea. With some semblance of history restored with Texas Tech and TCU playing annually, it's high time that more history should be restored.

Chris Del Conte, Kirby Hocutt, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram and The Lubbock Avalache-Journal, restore the Saddle Trophy.

If Goldy the Gopher and a parody Twitter account of Nebraska's former head coach can create a new tradition in the $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy, there's no reason for these schools to get a good old-fashioned trophy back together again. Class dismissed.

NOTES AND STATS:

  • The largest attendance for a single TCU-Tech game came in 2013’s matchup in Lubbock, when the Red Raiders fit in 58,701 fans for a 20-10 victory over the Frogs. Texas Tech set a school record for student attendance for a single game in that game, placing 16,092 students in AT&T Jones Stadium.
  • The largest win margin also belongs to Texas Tech, with a 63-7 victory in Lubbock in 1985.
  • However, TCU owns the record for most points in a single game, dumping 82 points on the Red Raiders last season.
  • There have been 11 shutouts in the series, TCU holds six of them. There hasn’t been a shutout in a TCU-Tech game since 1975, when Tech pitched its second straight shutout against the Frogs in a 34-0 win.
  • TCU has held their own against the Red Raiders at home, going 18-12 in series games in Fort Worth. The Red Raiders have dominated in Lubbock though, posting a 18-5-3 record at home against the Frogs. The Frogs haven’t won in Lubbock since 1991, a losing streak of four games.
  • Only three ties have occurred between the Frogs and Red Raiders, with all three happening in a span of five games (1979, 1981 and 1983).

It's time to bring that gloried leather saddle back into the fold and make it an exchanged spoil of war, and it's time again to refer back to this rivalry as its true name: The West Texas Championship.

The Very Beginning - 1926 matchup

Granted, the Saddle Trophy and the moniker of the “West Texas Championship” haven't been with TCU and Texas Tech forever. After all, the Frogs and Red Raiders* had already played 17 times by the time Texas Tech fully joined the Southwest Conference in 1960.

The asterisk, of course, comes because the Frogs were one of the first to play the Red Raiders well before Texas Tech went by that nickname. For the first five matchups between TCU and Texas Tech, the Frogs played the Texas Tech Matadors, with four games in Fort Worth and two in Lubbock from 1926 to 1936.

1926 was the second year of the Texas Tech football program, and the first year TCU played Texas Tech - then known as Texas Technological College. The first SWC team to schedule the team from Lubbock, TCU hosted the Matadors on Oct. 30 of that year.

Then under the guidance of head coach Edwin Y. Freeland - a former teammate of SMU head coach Ray Morrison and former TCU head coach - the Texas Tech Matadors went 6-1-3 as an independent program in that 1926 season, with their sole loss being a 28-16 loss to the Frogs.

In a unique situation, the Horned Frogs hold the distinction of being the first Division I college football team that Texas Tech scheduled and played. Abilene Christian had played Texas Tech before the Frogs did, but the Wildcats did not join Division I football until well into the 21st century.

It would be the start of TCU's best run against Texas Tech, winning the first five games of the series and outscoring the Matadors 120-28. To this day, TCU still has not had a better win streak against the Raiders, with the Frogs' three game win streak from 1958-60 being the closest TCU's been to replicating the streak.

By then though, the Frogs and Red Raiders were making memories as heated SWC foes.

SWC Days

In 1956, Texas Tech was admitted on a preliminary membership to the Southwest Conference, where the Red Raiders weren't eligible to compete for a title or 'official' conference games. Still though, TCU and Tech would still fight nearly annually until the Red Raiders became full SWC members in time for the 1960 season, with the Frogs taking three out of four against the Red Raiders during the probationary time.

The first years of the SWC match ups were arguably the best times for TCU, as the Frogs would take 10 out of 15 from 1958 to 1972. That winning period would soon be replicated and furthered by Texas Tech, as the Red Raiders would take charge of the series for the next 20+ years.

From 1973 to the dissolving of the Southwestern Conference in 1996, TCU would only get four wins against Texas Tech (1980, 1984, 1991, 1994), as the Red Raiders put together a 16-4-3 record against the Horned Frogs. TCU would win on the road only in 1991, which still to today is the only TCU win in Lubbock since 1972.

To be frankly honest, it's a little bit difficult to cite major, earth-shattering games between these two teams from this era. Both teams never reached high success during the final decades of the SWC, with very few upsets and very few season-changing performances.

Texas Tech's greatest teams, including the 11-1 Jim Carlen campaign in 1973, the 1976 season with Steve Sloan and 1989's Spike Dykes' led team all handled the Frogs with ease, while TCU's 1984 team led by running back Kenneth Davis trampled a weakened Red Raiders team that finished the season 4-7.

There's certainly lots to be remember in the eyes of players and coaches, but for the fans? What made the Texas Tech and TCU rivalry revived and full of bad blood was the Gary Patterson era, when he faced off against Mike Leach for two highly memorable games in the mid 2000s.

The Modern Rivalry Makes It Personal

In 2004 and 2006, TCU and Texas Tech featured a home-and-home series which set two dubious records.

In 2004, led by future TCU co-offensive coordinator Sonny Cumbie at quarterback, Texas Tech welcomed the Frogs into Lubbock and sent them packing with the most amount of points given up in a single game in Gary Patterson's coaching career, as the Red Raiders smoked the Frogs 70-35.

It was an embarrassment for TCU, who started the game up 21-0, keeping Texas Tech's air raid contained for seven possessions.

It wouldn't be good enough, as the Red Raiders scored on five consecutive drives and put up 56 unanswered points en route to the win. Cumbie would finish the game with 441 yards of passing and four touchdowns.

To this day, Patterson refuses to talk about that game. But he got more than vocal in 2006 when Texas Tech went to Fort Worth.

Learning from his previous encounter, Patterson kept Mike Leach's offense out of the end zone for an entire game - the first time that had ever happened to the Pirate's scheme. After TCU came out with the 12-3 victory, Gary got into it with reporters who didn't give TCU much of a chance coming into the game.

Patterson came out with some of his greatest Pattersonisms in that press conference, including the slogan 'Make It Personal' and the always appropriate 'Speed, baby.'

The 2006 game certainly was personal for the Frogs, especially defensive back Marvin White, who laid the lumber on a Tech receiver in arguably the hardest hit in TCU school history.

When a win or loss is personally on an annual basis, that's what makes it a real rivalry - and the personal touch seemed to be missing until that pivotal 2006 game. Although the two teams never faced each other for several more years, there was still plenty of smack talk between the two fan bases, and neither side had anything particularly nice to say to one another.

Needless to say, given a vocal Patterson and an angry team who took the game personally, TCU was ready to face Texas Tech again soon. But, due to TV scheduling, the Frogs and Red Raiders wouldn't get to meet in 2010 as previously planned.

ESPN, who wanted to showcase Texas Tech against Texas at the same time as TCU-Texas Tech, helped arrange TCU's kickoff game against Oregon State during TCU's Rose Bowl year as a replacement game. Although the situation wasn't ideal, the marquee matchup was a fine replacement, and in the end, it was just business. There was nothing that seemed personal or petty about the exchange; there was just a conflict of ESPN.

The same cannot be said for the scheduling fiasco of 2011.

As the Big 12 moved from an eight-game conference format to a nine-game format that season, Texas Tech elected to withdraw from the TCU contest, instead choosing to play Texas State, Nevada and New Mexico.

What could (and probably should) have been just a technical issue became a war cry for the Frogs, as Tech's then-head coach Tommy Tuberville infamously stated that TCU is \"not the type of team we want to play right now.\"

The move was seen by TCU fans as an act of cowardice, and not a move of a forced hand, as the Red Raiders administration tried to spin it. Without Tech on the schedule, and with two withdrawn games, there was understandable disappointment and anger when it came to TCU fans wanting to continue their revenge.

Thankfully though, It wouldn't be long before the Red Raiders and Frogs were forced to play one another again, as TCU accepted its Big 12 invite just a few months after Tuberville made his comments.

The Modern Rivalry: The Big 12 Era

If there wasn't already enough heat between these two rivals by 2012, substantially more rivalry hate was coming down the line with TCU's entrance into the Big 12.

Since being admitted into the conference, there's plenty of controversy and hot blood that's been (almost literally) exchanged between TCU and Texas Tech. In between the high-scoring affairs between the two schools, there have been three notable coaching swaps for the Frogs and Red Raiders in Chad Glasgow, Trey Haverty and Sonny Cumbie.

A long-time positional coach for TCU's defense, Chad Glasgow was Texas Tech's defensive coordinator for the 2011 season. He would quickly return to TCU in 2012 though, serving in the same position he held from 2001-10. Similarly, Texas Tech safeties coach Trey Haverty served multiple times as an assistant coach at TCU, both as a grad assistant and as a safeties/wide receivers coach.

Cumbie, as previously mentioned, was a previous Texas Tech quarterback who returned to Lubbock under Kliff Kingsbury's leadership. He quickly departed from the West Texas school, heading instead to work with Doug Meacham in creating TCU's new uptempo offensive scheme.

That offensive scheme has been a major part of TCU's last few games against Texas Tech, including a 56-53 thrilling triple overtime game and a school record setting 82-27 victory over the Raiders last year, including fastest usage of all the season's fireworks.

There's also another game that happened in 2013, but when a fox running on the field is about the eighth weirdest thing that happens in a game, is it really worth discussing?

The rivalry between Texas Tech and TCU has never burned hotter than it has since the Frogs and Red Raiders have played together in the Big 12. Given the defensive injuries of TCU this season, there's no reason to not bet the over when it comes to the total point spread. This game will be an explosive and fun time for everyone, and it's likely to take several years off the lives of Tech and TCU fans around the world.

Final notes

As we wrap up this lesson though, I will once again make my plea. With some semblance of history restored with Texas Tech and TCU playing annually, it's high time that more history should be restored.

Chris Del Conte, Kirby Hocutt, The Fort Worth Star-Telegram and The Lubbock Avalache-Journal, restore the Saddle Trophy.

If Goldy the Gopher and a parody Twitter account of Nebraska's former head coach can create a new tradition in the $5 Bits of Broken Chair Trophy, there's no reason for these schools to get a good old-fashioned trophy back together again. Class dismissed.
