TCU at Texas football game

Description: This film captures a football game between the Texas Christian University Horned Frogs and the University of Texas at Austin Longhorns. (TCU players are wearing white jerseys.) The Southwest Conference match-up was played on November 18, 1961, at Texas Memorial Stadium (now known as Darrell K Royal-Texas Memorial Stadium) in Austin. Although the top-ranked Longhorns make several trips to the red zone, they fail to score, ultimately losing to 24-point underdog TCU in a 0-6 upset. The shocking defeat spoiled not only the Texas’ hopes of winning its first national title but also the Heisman dreams of star players such as halfback Jimmy Saxton. Texas Head Coach Darrell K Royal, so upset about the loss, later compared the Horned Frogs to cockroaches. “It’s not what they eat and tote off,” he said, “it’s what they fall into and mess up that hurts.” TCU ended the season with a 3-5-2 record, while Texas finished 11-1 with a win over Mississippi in the 1962 Cotton Bowl Classic.
