When the TCU Horned Frogs football team started to attract crowds larger than they could imagine, Texas Christian University in Fort Worth, Texas, knew it was time to build a new stadium. Thus, Amon G. Carter Stadium, an open-air football stadium located on the campus of TCU was constructed.
Did you know the Horned Frog is actually a lizard? The Horned Frog has also been TCU's mascot longer than TCU has been the university's name. Four students helped make the decision in 1897 when AddRan Christian University (renamed TCU in 1902) was located in Waco. It is now one of the country's most distinctive mascots.
The Horned Frog was named the State Reptile of Texas in 1992. In stories of Native Americans in the Southwest, horned frogs are depicted as ancient, powerful and respected. Naming of TCU’s football team as the Horned Frogs runs nothing short to its nature. The Horned Frogs are out to overpower their opponents at every game.
