The Big 12 released its 2021 conference football schedule on Thursday, and it begins with Baylor playing at Kansas on Sept. 18, leading into a slate of four conference games the following Saturday. The Sept. 25 schedule is highlighted by Steve Sarkisian’s first Big 12 game as the new Texas coach against Texas Tech.
Other highlights include the Red River Showdown between Oklahoma and Texas set for Oct. 9 and the Bedlam game between Oklahoma and Oklahoma State set for Nov. 27. A couple other games to watch will be the Nov. 6 showdown between Iowa State and Texas and a Nov. 20 showdown between Iowa State and Oklahoma as the Cyclones try and build off their Big 12 title game appearance from 2020.
With coach Matt Campbell recently agreeing to a three-year extension through 2028, Iowa State is poised to continue rising and challenging Oklahoma for supremacy in the league. Campbell’s squad beat the Sooners in the regular season this past year before losing the rematch 27-21 in the Big 12 title game. Still, Iowa State went on to defeat Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl to cap a banner year for the program, which is poised to return several key players.
Here’s a look at the full slate of Big 12 games during the 2021 season. Note: the nonconference games will be released at a later date.
