2012 Big 12 Football Schedule Finally Released In Full

After much turmoil and at least two delays, one of which saw Texas Tech just go ahead and jump the gun (GUNS UP) entirely, the 2012 Big 12 football schedule has finally arrived, featuring the newly Big East-terminated West Virginia Mountaineers and TCU Horned Frogs. This is WVU's first stint in a heartland conference, while TCU has clawed its way back to rejoin many of its former Southwest Conference rivals.

TCU opens at home against the Kansas Jayhawks on Sept. 15, while West Virginia draws the Baylor Bears on Sept. 29. The two new guys play each other on Nov. 3 in Morgantown.

Elsewhere, Baylor and Tech are playing a neutral-siter in Arlington on Nov. 24, and the Red River Shootout Rivalry Shootout between the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners is set for Oct. 13. Replacing Texas A&M as Texas' Thanksgiving week rival is TCU.
