MINNEAPOLIS The Gophers football team announced Tuesday that it will play a home-and-home series with Texas Christian University beginning in 2014. The first of the two games will take place in Fort Worth, Texas, on Sept. 13, 2014. Minnesota will then host the Horned Frogs on Sept. 3, 2015 at TCF Bank Stadium. The home game for the Gophers replaces a previously scheduled game against South Dakota State. Minnesota and TCU now in the Big XII Conference have faced off just once, back in 1974. The Gophers earned a 9-7 win over the Horned Frogs at Memorial Stadium in Minneapolis. In Jerry Kill's second season as head coach last year, the Gophers advanced to their first bowl game since 2009 when they played Texas Tech in the Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas. With a loss in the bowl game, Minnesota finished 6-7 overall. TCU finished the 2012 regular season 7-5 and lost to Michigan State in the Buffalo Wild Wings Bowl. The Horned Frogs are just a few seasons removed from winning the Rose Bowl, as they beat Wisconsin by a 21-19 final to cap their 2010 season. The addition of TCU to the 2014 season completes Minnesota's non-conference schedule. The Gophers will also play Eastern Illinois, Middle Tennessee State and San Jose State before opening the Big Ten season. Follow Tyler Mason on Twitter.
