Big 12 releases conference schedule

0 Comments

For the first time in conference history, the Big 12 will be playing its league games on both sides of New Year’s Day.

The Big 12 will have a showcase day on Friday, Dec. 30, with Texas Tech at Iowa State (4 p.m. eastern), followed by Baylor at Oklahoma (7 p.m.) and Kansas at TCU ( 9 p.m.). Kansas State will host Texas and Oklahoma State will welcome West Virginia as well, though times have yet to be determined, on the league’s first-ever December day of games.

The league’s first signature Big Monday contest is Jan. 16, with Kansas traveling to Hilton Coliseum to face Iowa State.

Final day of league action is Saturday, March 4, before all 10 teams travel to Kansas City for the conference’s tournament starting March 8.

While the league may be starting at a new time, one thing will remain the same: Kansas is the heavy favorite to claim its 13th-straight conference championship.
