SALT LAKE CITY – It’s the dawn of a new era for Utah football in 2024 as they get set to compete in the Big 12 Conference. That future is much clearer now with the release of their first Big 12 schedule.

About three months ago the Big 12 as the conference released their four-year scheduling matrix.

(Here is a look at Utah in the Big 12 over the next four years.)

The Utes already had their out-of-conference schedule squared away that features Southern Utah, Utah State, and Baylor.

How Utah Ended Up In The Big 12

There were a lot of points along the way that can be attributed to the Pac-12’s failure to survive.

Hiring Larry Scott as the conference commissioner and retaining him for too long is a big fault on the part of the now former Conference of Champions.

Being innovative (Pac-12 Network) but not understanding the undertaking or distributing the product properly was another failure. Add in having opportunities to remedy the situation and not checking them off the list.

The Pac-12 also miserably failed at keeping pulse of where their teams were at, not only with the SoCal schools, but with Colorado, Oregon, and Washington as well. Arizona could be considered one more failure as it was alleged they were out the door as late as Thursday night before things lightened up a tad Friday morning.

Utah and ASU held out the longest and were some of the remaining Pac’s staunchest supporters, but a lack of a T.V. deal and trust ultimately tipped the tide in the Big 12’s favor.
