Arizona, Arizona State and Utah as the 14th, 15th and 16th Big 12 teams for the 2024 season last Friday night.

It all started last Thursday night during the Arizona Board of Regents meeting where Arizona and Arizona State discussed departing the Pac-12. Big 12 executives accepted Arizona to join the conference. When this was all happening, Arizona State and Utah were hesitant, waiting to see what Oregon and Washington would do.

The Big 12 Conference starting in the 2024-25 season will consist of Arizona, Arizona State, Baylor, BYU, Central Florida, Cincinnati, Colorado, Iowa State, Houston, Kansas, Kansas State, Oklahoma State, TCU, Texas Tech, Utah and West Virginia. 

For the first time since the Big 12 went to 10 teams in 2012, the conference will not be using its home-and-away round-robin system. The scheduling used was perfect to have every team on the same playing field. Now the conference scheduling is chaotic. Each team will have five paired matchups for home and away while having four exclusive home-only and four exclusive away-only games.
