The Big 12 Conference has its kick off times all set for Week 13 of the college football season. Heading into Week 12, several of the games were listed as TBD, as FOX and ESPN were waiting to see how Saturday’s games would play out.
But now, the TV networks have made their decisions.
WEEK 13 BIG 12 KICK OFF TIMES, TV DESIGNATIONS
TCU at Oklahoma: 11:00am CT (FOX)
Houston at UCF: 12:00pm ET/11:00am CT (FS1)
BYU at Oklahoma State: 2:30pm CT/1:30pm MT (ABC)
West Virginia at Baylor: 6:00pm CT/7:00pm ET (FS1)
Texas Tech at Texas: 6:30pm CT (ABC)
Kansas at Cincinnati: 6:00pm CT/7:00pm ET OR 6:30pm Ct/7:30pm ET (ESPN2)
Iowa State at Kansas State: 7:00pm CT (FOX)
So the Big 12 is set to have a full slate of 12 hours of football on Saturday. And TCU and Oklahoma fans will have to get it going early with an 11:00 a.m. local time kick from Norman, Oklahoma as the Horned Frogs attempt to play spoiler against the Sooners.
Zero games on ESPN+ is a luxury at this point in the season, as the networks have elected to feature each Big 12 matchup on their main channels. The only major eye-catching thing to point out from the announcement is the “OR” listed next to the game between Cincinnati and Kansas, as the matchup could end up getting pushed back 30 minutes for TV Networks to adjust to the weekly flow of games.
The night is capped off with a great game in Manhattan as the Kansas State Wildcats take on the Iowa State Cyclones in Farmageddon, which will both play a major role in how the Big 12 race plays out going forward.
