The Big 12 has officially released the full 2024 football schedule, giving Lance Leipold and the Kansas Jayhawks 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.

Kansas is coming off its best season in nearly two decades and is hoping for more of the same next year. Here’s what the 2024 schedule looks like for KU.

The 2024 season will be a bit different for the folks in Lawrence, as KU will be playing its home games in Kansas City. Nonconference games will be held at Children’s Mercy Park, while Big 12 games will be held at Arrowhead Stadium, home of the Kansas City Chiefs.

Kansas has six home games in 2024, playing host to Lindenwood and UNLV in the nonconference slate and TCU, Houston, Iowa State, and Colorado in Big 12 play. The Jayhawks will have five road games against Big 12 opponents, at West Virginia, Arizona State, Kansas State, BYU, and Baylor.

Kansas went 9-4 (5-4 Big 12) in 2023 and finished ranked No. 23, their first time finishing as a ranked team since 2007. With plenty of pieces returning in 2024, they hope to build on top of the promising year.
