TCU has been ranked No. 14 in the Associated Press preseason poll.

The No. 14 spot is the second highest preseason ranking in the history of the Associated Press poll. The Frogs started No. 6 in last year's preseason poll.

The AP poll does not factor into the BCS standings.

TCU has been ranked in 42 consecutive polls, the longest streak in school history, and currently the 3rd longest in the nation, according to TCU Athletics.

The Frogs start the season Sept. 2 at Baylor at 7 p.m. The game will be broadcast on ESPN.
