The TCU rivalry may be the best case for a real rivalry, as the all time record has TCU edging Baylor 51-50-7. In the last days of the Southwest Conference, Baylor dominated this rivalry, but since they started playing again after a 10 year lapse, TCU has dominated, 4-1. Before the SWC broke up, this was among the top five most played match ups in college football. I'm happy that we are in the same conference again, especially since I live in Fort Worth.

Yeah, I know, Texas owns this series, too. All time record: 73-24-5. But Baylor fans remember that in 1974, after not having beaten the Longhorns since 1956, Baylor won in the "Miracle on the Brazos" and claimed their first conference title in 50 years. There was some parity then for a few years, followed by 12 consecutive Baylor losses until RG3 led the Bears to win twice in a row. Even during these times of UT dominance, we still had fun with my always gracious Uncle David and his family.
