TCU comes off the top rope at Texas

It's Star Wars Day here on Planet Earth because, you know, it's May the Fourth. Plenty of college football programs have attempted to stay relevant by pushing out Star Wars-related content.

Stuff like this.

TCU decided to get in on the action, but with a twist. The Frogs pushed out some Star Wards content -- a lightsaber straight into the heart of Texas.

Texas dominated TCU -- as should a massive football state's flagship school against a small, religiously-oriented private school -- in the Southwest Conference days, owning a 60-20-1 advantage. But even that doesn't tell the whole story. From 1968 through the Frogs' admission to the Big 12 in 2012, TCU beat Texas one (1) time in 29 tries.

But TCU has claimed dominion over Texas since joining the Big 12, taking four straight and five out of six, including a perfect 3-0 mark in Austin.

When you've won four straight games against your state's flagship school by a combined 153-33, you've earned the right to tweet what you want, when you want.
