After seeing what the Big 12 did this weekend, I’m ok with TCU not playing. But as a Dallasite, this student’s take on the game rings true with me as well.
Dallas resident and TCU junior Alex Durham was planning to go to the game but was ultimately “disappointed” to hear about the cancelation.
Durham’s connection to this rivalry is strong. Several of his family members are TCU alumni, and he has a sister who graduated from SMU. In addition, Durham’s Dallas home is within walking distance of the SMU campus, so the rivalry plays a huge part in his neighborhood and family discussions.
