Big 12 Releases 2017 Conference Football Schedule

The 2017 Big 12 football schedule is out! Here's a look at what lies ahead for the Longhorns in Tom Herman's first-year on the job.

The Big 12 released its complete 2017 conference schedule Wednesday afternoon.

Here's what lies ahead for the Texas Longhorns in 2017.

Sept. 30 - Texas at Iowa State

Oct. 7 - Texas vs. Kansas State

Oct. 14 - Texas vs. Oklahoma (Dallas)

Oct. 21 - Texas vs. Oklahoma State

Oct. 28 - Texas at Baylor

Nov. 4 - Texas at TCU

Nov. 11 - Texas vs. Kansas

Nov. 18 - Texas at West Virginia

Nov. 25 - Texas vs. Texas Tech

Dec. 2 - Big 12 Championship Game

As for the Longhorns' non-conference plans, Texas will host Maryland (Sept. 2) and San Jose State (Sept. 9) before making its first road trip of the season at USC (Sept. 16). 

Just as it was in 2016, the Longhorns' lone bye week comes after out-of-conference games conclude, giving Texas an additional week to prepare for Big 12 play.

 

MY TAKE: Facing Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Baylor and TCU without a bye could be rough for Texas.

Sure, the caliber of talent other Big 12 teams will field in 2017 is currently unknown, but all five of those teams finished the regular season with .500 record or better.

October will without a doubt be a trying month for Tom Herman and the Longhorns.

Weigh in on the Longhorns' schedule here!
