Horned Frog fans had plenty of reasons to cheer during TCU’s breezy game against Jackson State at Amon G. Carter Stadium Saturday night.

But the biggest cheers of the first half might have been the announcement of Baylor losing to Liberty 24-17 in the third quarter. TCU led 35-0 just before halftime.

The Flames, who were a Football Championship Subdivision team until this season, were still hanging with the Bears late in the third quarter but Baylor had tied it at 24-24.

The amount of Baylor fans I see on twitter checking out of this game and giving up on this team is really making me mad
