LOOK: TCU's wild alternate uniforms vs. Texas will have Horned Frogs fans seeing red
These threads go heavy on red, representing blood that spews from a horned lizard's eyes
There are so many alternate college football uniforms these days that it's hard to keep up with all of them. But the ones TCU has unveiled for Saturday's game against No. 15 Texas truly are ... bloody, if nothing else.
That's not just me saying that. The Horned Frogs' new alternate uniforms feature heavy red accents from the helmet on down. That's not a coincidence, since red isn't anywhere in TCU's school colors.

Football isn't life and death, but metaphorically speaking, you could make the case that TCU, losers of two straight and three of its last four, are entering desperation mode and fighting for their season.
