What to watch for

TCU is returning 18 starters (eight defensive, 10 offensive) and finished last season by winning five of its last six games. ... Quarterback Max Duggan is the face of the team entering his junior season. Duggan is coming off a season in which he threw for 10 touchdowns and rushed for 10 TDs. ... Running back Zach Evans is the highest-rated recruit in program history and is expected to take another step forward as a sophomore. ... The defense has a number of starters sidelined with injuries, but their pass rush should be a strength in 2021 behind Ochaun Mathis, Khari Coleman and Dylan Horton. ... From a coaching perspective, Kenny Hill is in his first full season as QB coach and Doug Meacham was officially named offensive coordinator this offseason.

2021 season

The regular-season is less than five months away. TCU’s opener is set for Sept. 4 against Duquesne at Amon G. Carter Stadium. That is the first of four straight home games followed by Cal (Sept. 11), SMU (Sept. 25) and Texas (Oct. 2).
