Houston Cougars Full 2024 Football Schedule Released

The Big 12 has officially released the full 2024 football schedule, giving Willie Fritz and the Houston Cougars their first glimpse of what life in the new-look conference will be like.

The addition of four new teams combined with the exit of Oklahoma and Texas will create a 16-team Big 12 conference made up of some of the most diverse and exciting football programs in the country.

Houston is heading into its second year as a member of the Big 12 conference and its first season under new head coach, Willie Fritz. Here’s how their 2024 season will look.

* – Pre-scheduled non-conference matchup

Houston has six home games in 2024, playing host to UNLV and Rice in the nonconference slate and Iowa State, Utah, Kansas State, Baylor, and Kansas in Big 12 play. The Cougars will have five road games against Big 12 opponents, at Cincinnati, TCU, Kansas, Arizona, and BYU

Houston went 4-8 (2-7 Big 12) and finished 13th in its first year in the Big 12 but hopes that a coaching change and a new-look conference are just what they need.
