TCU, SMU give each other the ‘business’ over Iron Skillet

🕐 1 min read

The Iron Skillet game between the TCU Horned Frogs and the SMU Mustangs has the schools giving each other the “business.”

Homer Erekson, dean of the TCU Neeley School of Business in Fort Worth, and Matt Myers, dean of the SMU Cox School of Business in Dallas, have a friendly wager over which university’s football team will win this year’s Battle of the Iron Skillet, September 16 at Amon Carter Stadium. In honor of the Horned Frogs, Dean Erekson sent Dean Myers a bottle of Purple Cowboy wine, a purple TCU Neeley polo, a TCU coffee mug and TCU #1 foam finger. In honor of the Mustangs, Dean Myers sent Dean Erekson a bottle of Iron Horse champagne, along with a logoed T-shirt and other red and blue SMU-specific apparel.

Come Monday morning, the dean on the losing side of this 71-year-old football rivalry will wear the other’s colors and toast the winning team for a photo opp. According to odds-makers, TCU is an almost 20-point favorite, but both teams are 2 and 0 going into the game. The game, which alternates between Dallas and Fort Worth every fall, will be held at Amon G. Carter Stadium this Saturday, September 16. Kickoff is at 2:30 p.m. The Horned Frogs lead the Iron Skillet series with 49 wins, 40 losses and 7 ties.
