LOOK: TCU's wild alternate uniforms vs. Texas will have Horned Frogs fans seeing red

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.

Horned frogs are actually horned lizards and can literally spew blood from their eyes as a final defense mechanism when threatened by a predator. 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.

Just a reminder with all alternate uniforms: they're first and foremost designed for the players. So while these threads are certainly different, as long as the players like them, that's all that really matters.
