Texas Football Schedules Announced Through 2007

Is it ever too soon to plan for football weekends…even for 2007? The Texas football schedules for the next five years are nearly complete following the Big 12 Board of Directors approval of conference game slates at the league meetings in Kansas City. Here’s a sneak peak of when to catch the Burnt Orange.

Longhorn football will be highlighted by a home-and-away series with defending national champion Ohio State, starting in 2005. Until then, Texas renews its ancient (but almost forgotten) rivalry with Arkansas when the Hogs come calling this September. The Horns return the favor on September 11, 2004.

It’s been a while since Texas began conference play on the road (a 62-0 win at Baylor in 1999) but the Horns travel to Missouri in 2005 for their Big 12 opener. Otherwise, the league format for the next four years will remain the same as the previous eight seasons of Big 12 football play. The six squads in each division will play one another every year, and there will be a rotation of three teams from the opposite division every two years.

Texas is completing a three-team rotation with home contests against Kansas State (Oct. 4) and Nebraska (Nov. 1) and a road game at Iowa State (Oct. 18) in 2003. The Longhorns will travel to Colorado (Oct. 30) and Kansas (Nov. 13) while hosting Missouri (Oct. 16) next season.

We assume that any card-carrying Inside Texas subscriber has the 2003 schedule memorized. (If not, click here.)
