IRVING, Texas – The Big 12 Conference has announced its 16-team, four-year conference scheduling matrix for Arizona Football’s 2024-27 seasons. The scheduling model was developed with a priority on geography, historic matchups, and rivalries as well as competitive balance.
“As we look towards the future of this Conference, we are thrilled to introduce the first football scheduling matrix for the new-look Big 12,” said Commissioner Brett Yormark. “I’m grateful to our membership for their support throughout the scheduling process. In this model, competitive balance and student-athlete wellness was prioritized. Rivalries will be protected, and new matchups will be introduced – the excitement and parity this Conference is known for will continue for years to come.”
Arizona has played 91 games in program history against future Big 12 Conference opponents, including 32 matchups against Border Conference rival Texas Tech, with the last meeting taking place in 2019. The Wildcats have played BYU (12-12-1) 25 times with the most recent matchup in Las Vegas in 2021, Houston (1-3) four times with the most recent matchup in 2018, TCU (1-1) twice with the last matchup coming in 2003, and have never faced West Virginia and UCF.
