AUSTIN, Texas -- The Big 12 Conference released its 2013 football schedule as approved by the league's Directors of Athletics on Tuesday.
The conference schedule for Texas begins Sept. 21 at home against Kansas State followed by a bye week before traveling to Iowa State on either Thursday, Oct. 3 or Saturday, Oct. 5. The Longhorns will face Oklahoma in the Red River Rivalry on Oct. 12 prior to a second bye week. On Oct. 26, Texas will visit TCU for the first time as Big 12 foes before returning home to play Kansas on Nov. 2, and then visiting West Virginia for the first time in school history on Nov. 9. The Longhorns return home for two games with Oklahoma State on Nov. 16, and Texas Tech on Thanksgiving on Thursday, Nov. 28. They will then close the regular season on the road against Baylor on Dec. 7.
The 2013 season opens for Texas with three nonconference games starting with the season opener at home against New Mexico State on Aug. 31. On Sept. 7, the Longhorns will make their second visit in school history to Provo, Utah, to face BYU with the only other trip coming in 1988. They will then host Ole Miss for the third time ever and the first since 1925 on Sept. 14 to finish the nonconference schedule.

A possible Thursday night game? Who makes the final call on the actual day of the game?
RIP orangehorn Eddie Knight: 8/5/1942 - 12/12/2010
BYU and TCU aren't home games.
6 home games (not incl. RRR).
Anybody else want to meet me in Morgantown on Nov. 9th? It's a quick 6-hour drive... I'll bring the couch!
This schedule is probably the best anyone could have hoped for.
Next year sets up so well for Texas...
Just booked a hotel room in Uniontown, PA, as no other Hilton properties available in Morgantown for Nov. 9, 2013, weekend.
No home games in October..
Aug. 31: vs. UL-Monroe
Sept. 7: vs. West Virginia
Sept. 14: vs. Tulsa
Sept. 21: Bye
Sept. 28: at Notre Dame
Oct. 5: vs. TCU

Nov. 30: Bye
Dec. 7: at Oklahoma State
So possibly a Thursday night game?
Oct. 3 or 5: at Iowa State*
Probably going to be a very good thing that that late game against Oklahoma State is in Austin.
The composite Big 12 schedule below...
The Big 12 Conference has released its 2013 football schedule as approved by the league's Directors of Athletics. The 2013 slate again features a 10-team, nine-game, round-robin schedule.
1 Vote against Thursday night game. That is reserved for Big East, WAC and the like.
Very possible. I'm thinking about flying into Pittsburgh and driving down for that one.
Ill be there! its about a 5 hour drive for me
I vote for the Thursday night game. No prep time problems with a bye week before and would give the extra two days prep for the OU game the next week.
Texas also has the toughest non-conference in the BigXII... two legit games against BYU and Ole Miss.
And Kansas State should get an automatic post-season ban for this bullsh*t: North Dakota St., Lafayette, UMass.
Oklahoma State is the same weekend as the F1 race.
Yikes. Austin is going to be a complete mess that weekend.
Good luck to anybody wanting to get a hotel for the game that weekend.
I thought I read that there would not be a date conflict btn F1 and the Longhorns game. Am I wrong?
