FORT WORTH (CBSDFW.COM) – Thousands of TCU fans are making big travel plans to attended the Rose Bowl on New Year’s Day.
The Horned Frogs officially found out Sunday they will play the University of Wisconsin Badgers in the Rose Bowl on January 1 in Pasadena, California.
Anthony Travel in Dallas specializes in collegiate events, and is handling all the travel arrangements for the TCU Alumni Association.
“We are crazy busy. We were ready to go with whichever. We watched the games this weekend and the official announcement last night,” said Tricia Gorgas, “And with the click of the button we were ready with the Rose Bowl.”
Already more than 2,000 TCU fans have booked trips with them, to watch the Frogs play in the biggest bowl game in recent team history.
“I’m a huge college football fan, and that’s been one game I’ve wanted to go to my whole life, regardless of who’s playing,” said TCU Alumnus Justin Stevens, “and now that TCU is playing, I mean, what better circumstance than to go now.”
Stevens wouldn’t miss the game. Frog fever is in his blood, his mother who is going to the Rose Bowl with him, is also a TCU graduate.
“Went online bought our tickets this morning,” he said, “so we’re set up to go.”
“I’m a Horned Frog fan, don’t stop,” said Dr. Chris Ewin, who admitted he just recently caught “Frog Fever” himself.
The Fort Worth family doctor didn’t go to TCU, but is now a loyal supporter. He booked his trip to California Monday morning, to watch his new favorite team take on Wisconsin.
“To make it to such an illustrious bowl game is fabulous,” he said.
