The TCU Horned Frogs football statistical leaders are individual statistical leaders of the TCU Horned Frogs football program in various categories,[1] including passing, rushing, receiving, total offense, defensive stats, and kicking. Within those areas, the lists identify single-game, single-season, and career leaders. The Horned Frogs represent Texas Christian University in the NCAA's Big 12 Conference.

Although TCU began competing in intercollegiate football in 1896,[1] the school's official record book does not generally include records from the 1930s and before, as records from before this year are often incomplete and inconsistent. These lists are dominated by more recent players for several reasons:

  • Since the 1930s, seasons have increased from 10 games to 11 and then 12 games in length.
  • The NCAA didn't allow freshmen to play varsity football until 1972 (with the exception of the World War II years), allowing players to have four-year careers.
  • Bowl games only began counting toward single-season and career statistics in 2002.[2] The Horned Frogs have played in 13 bowl games since then, allowing players in these seasons an additional game to accumulate statistics.
  • All of TCU's 10 highest seasons ranked by total offensive yards have come during the 21st century.[1] The Horned Frogs obliterated its school record in 2014, accumulating 6,929 yards of total offense[3] after switching to an air raid offense.[4] The Horned Frogs broke this record in 2015 by putting up 7,317 yards.

These lists are updated through the end of the 2017 season.
