Big 12 officials have announced the league's future conference football schedules, which will feature a nine-game round-robin schedule for all league teams, effective next season.
The announcement came today and there are some selected situations where league teams will be playing in an opponent's stadium for two consecutive seasons. Examples: Texas Tech is at Oklahoma this season and again in 2011 before the Sooners make their next visit to Lubbock in 2012. Oklahoma plays at Oklahoma State this season and again in 2011.
For Tech, the schedule switch means that -- effective in 2012 -- the Red Raiders will have home games against Texas and Oklahoma in the same season in even-numbered years. Tech will have a home game against A&M in odd-numbered years.
For Texas and Texas A&M, the future schedule tweaks were minimal. And all schedules remain fluid, pending the desires of TV networks to move games to different dates. As things stand, the new schedules released today do not include games on the first Saturday in December, when most other leagues wil be playing conference championship games.
Big 12 commissioner Dan Beebe said he anticipates moving one or more games to that December slot on an annual basis to maximize exposure and the value of television rights agreements.
