Mayor declares ‘Go Purple Day’ for TCU Horned Frogs



Horned Frog fever has reached City Hall.

Mayor Mike Moncrief has declared Friday “Go Purple Day” and encouraged residents to wear purple on the eve of No. 4 Texas Christian University’s football game against the No. 16 Utah Utes.

Several Fort Worth landmarks, including the Avenue of Lights on West Lancaster Avenue, the Chesapeake Energy headquarters and downtown buildings, will illuminate purple lights this weekend.

“Coach [Gary] Patterson and his team have placed Fort Worth on the national stage, and we are all very proud,�” Moncrief said. “Let’s show our visitors from Utah we are ready and have our game faces on, as well as our colors.”

Amon G. Carter Stadium has sold out for the 6:30 p.m. Saturday kickoff, and ESPN’s College Football GameDay show will broadcast from the campus commons Saturday morning.

TCU is hoping to finish the season unbeaten for the first time since 1938.
