By Kevin Kelley -

Five Big 12 football games in 2024 have been moved to Friday nights, according to announcements this week from the schools involved.

The Arizona Wildcats at Kansas State Wildcats football game, which was previously announced as Sept. 13 or 14, will be played on Friday, Sept. 13 at Bill Snyder Family Stadium in Manhattan, Kan.

Although Arizona joins the Big 12 Conference this season, the matchup was scheduled back in 2015 and will be considered a non-conference contest.

The Houston Cougars will be featured in two Friday night contests this season, and both games are on the road. Houston will visit the TCU Horned Frogs in Fort Worth, Texas, on Friday, Oct. 4 (previously announced as Oct. 4 or 5) and the Arizona Wildcats in Tucson, Ariz., on Friday, Nov. 15 (previously announced as Nov. 14-16).

The Arizona State Sun Devils at Utah Utes football game, previously announced as Nov. 11 or 12, will be contested on Friday, Oct. 11 at Rice-Eccles Stadium in Salt Lake City, Utah.

Also moved to Friday night is a BYU Cougars home contest against the Oklahoma State Cowboys. The game will be played on Friday, Oct. 18 (previously announced as Oct. 18 or 19) at LaVell Edwards Stadium in Provo, Utah.

Below are the five Big 12 contests that were moved to Friday nights this week:

  • Arizona at Kansas State – Sept. 13
  • Houston at TCU – Oct. 4
  • Utah at Arizona State – Oct. 11
  • Oklahoma State at BYU – Oct. 18

Wonder if any of these games will be part of Fox’s new Friday Night Games? Or are will they be part of ESPN’s long running Friday night slate. They do seem to fall mostly on Fridays when the ACC was not already scheduled.

Big Ten Fan would like to see Big 12 & Mountain West to be included to FOX Friday evening schedule.

As a Michigan Wolverines Fan I would like to see them just one Friday evening game & give others opportunity too.
