TCU coach Gary Patterson says the fun will have to wait.

The Horned Frogs, who were 11-2 and finished seventh in the AP poll last season, reported to campus Sunday.

Patterson, whose team starts practice Monday, says "fun is spelled w-i-n." The Frogs won't get a chance to a win a game until Sept. 12 at Virginia, which will be their latest season opener since 1986, and a week after most teams play their first games.

Once the Frogs get started, though, they will play on 12 consecutive Saturdays.

It will be the first time since 1998 that the Frogs will play all of their regular season games on Saturdays. They played 12 straight weeks without an open date in 2005, but had a Thursday night game in that stretch.
