TCU head coach Sonny Dykes was talking about TCU’s strength of schedule and took a shot at the SEC’s non-conference games in November.

Most teams in the SEC usually schedule a non-conference game before the end of the season to secure a win outside of the conference schedule. On Thursday, Dykes mentioned how TCU played conference opponents for most of the season and did not look to schedule a lesser opponent at the end of the season. While speaking to the media ahead of the Fiesta Bowl, he discussed TCU’s schedule.

“We don’t have the good fortune to play an out-of-conference game like the the SEC does in Week 10 or Week 11. You’re not going to catch The Citadel in Week 10. We caught Texas,” Dykes said.

TCU played its final 10 games of the regular season against Big 12 teams and Dykes believed that his team’s schedule was more challenging than teams in other conferences. The Horned Frogs finished the season with a 12-1 record.

The 1st loss came against Kansas State in the Big 12 Championship Game on Dec. 3. TCU had a remarkable season as the Horned Frogs were led by Heisman Trophy finalist Max Duggan.

TCU will take on Michigan in the Fiesta Bowl on Saturday at 4 p.m. ET.
