Last year, the conference released the schedule on January 31. The deadline for conferences to typically submit their matchups to television partners is February 1. So this is the second consecutive year the schedule drops at the end of January.
16-team era in the Big 12
The 16-member Big 12 will lose Texas and Oklahoma to the SEC but bring in Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, and Utah from the Pac-12.
Matchups for the Big 12 football season in 2024 have already been revealed. The announced schedule will provide the official dates of the games.
Locally in Utah, there will be a lot of intrigue about where the Big 12 Conference places the rivalry game between BYU and Utah. BYU/Utah is one of the protected rivalries in the conference.
When the two programs were conference foes in the WAC and Mountain West, it was an annual fixture on the final week of the regular season in November.
BYU will travel to Rice-Eccles Stadium to face Utah in Salt Lake City. It will be the first trip to Salt Lake for BYU since 2018.
League matchups for BYU football in 2024
BYU’s matchups include home games against Oklahoma State, Kansas, and Kansas State. All three teams appear in the top six of the KSL Sports Way-Too-Early Big 12 football power rankings for the 2024 season.
Other home games include Big 12 newcomer Arizona, a trendy pick to be the preseason favorite in the league, with how they’ve maintained their roster after the abrupt departure of Jedd Fisch to Washington. The Houston Cougars also make their first trip to Provo since the 2014 season.
BYU’s other three road games in 2024 are at Arizona State, Baylor, and UCF.
Utah has four home games, five on the road
Aside from BYU, Utah’s home games are Arizona, Iowa State, and former Mountain West rival TCU, which travels to Salt Lake for the first time since 2010.
The road games for the Utes are at Arizona State, Colorado, Houston, Oklahoma State, and UCF.
