SALT LAKE CITY (ABC4 Sports) – The Big 12 Conference announced its 16-team, four-year scheduling matrix for the 2024-27 football seasons today with the University of Utah setting to embark into its Big 12 era in 2024.

Utah’s first season in the Big 12 will feature four conference home games and five on the road with the Utes entering next season with a 144-124-9 record against the teams that will be a part of the league in 2024. Utah’s previously scheduled game against Baylor on Sept. 9, 2024 will remain a non-conference game for next season. 

During the four years, all teams will play one another at least once home and away. Some matchups will occur over three seasons while others take place in all four. The conference also looked to maintain the current 5/4, 4/5 home/away rotation for all 16 members to minimize non-conference scheduling disruptions.
