        This has been a big-12 thing forever – The red river rivalry was never on rivalry weekend. Actually probably smart since we aren’t going to have to compete for eyeballs with OSU-Michigan, Florida FSU, Alabama Auburn etc..

          Except that’s because Texas played aTm and OU played OSU on Thanksgiving weekend. We should be playing either BYU or Colorado that weekend. Not effing UCF who none of us care about.

            That’s not true – Texas played TTU last year, Baylor the year before, and KSU the year before that on Turkey day weekend. Oklahoma played TCU in 2023, TTU in 2022, and OklSt. in 2021 (Bedlam is only played on rivaly weekend halfish the time)

        Ending with BYU has the makings of a trap game.

        Which team is more likely to have a berth in conference championship locked up pre-game? Which team is more likely to be out of the conference championship running by late October and get a consolation opportunity in the rivalry game? See 2018.

      So weird being in the same conference as tds and not playing during rivalry week. But considering the season we can have, I’d rather not play them the final week of the season.

      OSU and Arizona back to back to start off conference games will be tough. I like the idea that we ought to be healthier for those games earlier in the season (knock on every piece of wood I can find), but I’m a bit concerned with how it seems to take our offensive line several games to get up to speed.

              Narf is correct. There were a number of PAC/Big 12 games on the schedule for 2024 and not all of them could be eliminated or incorporated into the conference schedule. The Utah / Houston game became a conference game as did Utah / parochial school. Utah / Baylor stayed as a non-con so that Utah would not have to find two new opponents.

              K State / Arizona also anticipated issues finding opponents so that game stayed as a non-con also.

        This is the most favorable schedule Utah has ever had in the P5 era by a long shot. It’s CFP or bust without a doubt.

        I like that TDS is so p**sed the rivalry game isn’t the last week. I couldn’t care less when we play them. Going to DisneyWorld with my wife and kids that final week of November sounds great to me!

          Traveling that week is what puts pause in my plans, even with parents that live in FL half the year, 2 cousins that went to UCF. It went from me traveling to having to consider taking the whole family but it’s also the start of my Senior’s last basketball season so she will refuse to go. So either split family or watching this one on the couch. Was looking forward to @UCF, if just about any other week. And good luck with the crowds at Disney that week. Yikes.

            A little bit off-topic but, actually, T-Giving week is probably one of the best times of the year to go to Disney. And I say that as a guy that for years lived 45 minutes away from WDW. Most people don’t see T-Giving as a time to go to the parks so you’re only dealing with locals, foreigners, and the occasional out of towner. Also, by that time of the year, temperatures cool down significantly in Central Florida to the point that you need a jacket at night (mid to high 50s). I’m planning to go to this game basically because it gets me back to my home state, the kids won’t miss any school, and who doesn’t like spending time with the family at the parks. A possible undefeated Ute team playing it’s last game of the regular season is just a bonus.

                I’m not calling that assessment into question but I base my comments on actually living in Florida and going to the park during the times mentioned. I also spent the last week of last year in LA and was told to expect “massive crowds” at Disneyland and California Adventure. Sure,, there were a lot of people there but nothing like the “downtown Bangkok” feeling that a lot of these websites tell you to expect.

      Holy S**t. UCF’s schedule is so easy. Ours isn’t that hard, but theirs is a cake walk. They get BYU and us and Colorado at home. No Oklahoma State…and everyone else kinda sucks in the Big 12.

      They should be in the conference finals.

      Zona/ASU play the last weekend, but Kansas/K State play mid-season. Just don’t have all the natural pairs like we did in PAC12 with LA, Bay Area, states of Washington, Oregon, Arizona with Utah/Colorado being odd teams out. Rivalry week really won’t mean much now in the coming years. Not just in the BIG12 but in other conferences too. Too many long term rivalries (Oklahoma/OSU for example) being split up.

        Once NU-OU and Texas-ATM broke up the conference has been all over the place for rivalry games. Cougarboard thinks Harlan and Whitt made sure the game wasn’t on rivalry weekend because we have so much pull over Yormark, which is hilarious

        Probably better for TV to have them spread out, but I don’t like it. But I’ll deal with it because I’m a fan. I’ll just act like an entitled brat for a little bit, stomp my feet, and nothing will change. Ok, I’m just visiting my 2 and 4 year old niece/nephew, so maybe it’s rubbing off.

      I’ll say what we’re all thinking- this is depressing. Our new conference mates may hate it, but its true. You can’t replace the near-perfect conference we had with this, and pretend they are somehow equivalent. Just look at the home schedule. Not to mention, as an academic, the University affiliations actually mattered (I know, no one cares).

      But I’ll go silver-linings. Our program is in a position to excel with this group. So I’ll get my ass on board and stop complaining.

        Totally agreed. It was so easy to go to road games in the PAC-12. Everyone was so close.

        @Oklahoma State – no thanks.
        @Houston – eh
        @UCF – Ok Disney World is there…oh, you put it the weekend of Thanksgiving when Disney is packed? No thanks.

        Bleh.

        Our best home games are TCU or BYU…back to the MWC we go…

          Disney is not packed during Thanksgiving, or at least any more so than any other time of the year…trust me, I’ve been there more than once. It’s not at all like the Christmas time period or any time during the summer. Those are the times when Disney is truly well packed.

              Hmmm, all I can tell you is that I’ve been to Disney World multiple times in my life during the T-Giving period…the last time a couple of years ago. I would ask where are all of these massive crowds going to come from since in Florida and nearby locations, schoolkids only get Thanksgiving and Friday off, not the whole T-Giving week like some schools here in Utah.

        Shouldn’t be a surprise to anyone at all on this Hub that Baylor is being scheduled as a Conference game. It was announced months ago when Big-12 scheduling started that it was going to be that way due to the difficulties of having to try to reschedule both Baylor AND BYU from non-conference to conference. You can’t just plug and play anybody at any time when such a drastic of a change as a conference realignment occurs.

      I really could not care less when the game with the Y is. My first thoughts were 5 on the road and 4 at home, the bye weeks, everyone has two this year and ours are spaced well, the games I am concerned with – Az, Ok State, and TCU – are one home, two on the road. As for Big 12 rival, I want to see who becomes the greatest challenge to us getting to the CCG. I resist making the game with the Y anything more than another Big 12 game. Potential road games, UCF with grand kids or TCU and the Stockyard with adults. It is what it is for the next few years.
