Big 12 still aiming for fall football, adjusts schedule

The Big 12 Conference has announced Wednesday it is moving forward with fall sports, but with a revised schedule for football.

The University of Texas will have two bye dates (Oct. 17 and Nov. 14) and has left a date open for a nonconference opponent to be announced. For now, the Longhorns will kick off their season Sept. 26 at Texas Tech, while Baylor, Texas Christian and Texas Tech — the other three Big 12 members — will kick off Sept. 12.

Each Big 12 team will play nine conference games with one possible nonconference game to be played before Sept. 26.
