The West Virginia Mountaineers have announced their 2012 football schedule, which features games against Marshall, Kansas State, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, TCU and Texas.
The Mountaineers will be playing their inaugural season in the Big 12 after leaving the Big East, a conference which they have competed in since 1991.
West Virginia opens the 2012 season at home on Sept. 1 against in-state rival Marshall. The Mountaineers also have non-conference games scheduled vs. James Madison (Sept. 15; at FedEx Field) and home vs. Maryland (Sept. 22).
West Virginia’s first game in the Big 12 is at Mountaineer Field on Sept. 29 against the Baylor Bears. The game is also Homecoming for the Mountaineers. WVU then hits the road for games at Texas on Oct. 6 and at Texas Tech on Oct. 13 before returning home to host Kansas State on Oct. 20.
After an open date, the Mountaineers host fellow Big 12 newcomer TCU on Nov. 3. West Virginia then plays at Oklahoma State on Nov. 10, hosts Oklahoma on Nov. 17 and travels to Iowa State on Nov. 24.
The Mountaineers close out their inaugural season in the Big 12 on Dec. 1 at home against the Kansas Jayhawks.
What happened to the Backyard Brawl with Pitt ?
Not happening for now. WVU is in the Big 12 now.
WE ARE ALREADY INTO THE COLLEGE FOOTBALL SEASON AND WE STILL CAN’T GET A FULL SCHEDUAL OF THE WV MOUNTAINEERS. THERE ARE STILL NO CHANNELS AND TIMES FOR EACH GAME. WHAT IS WRONG THAT WE DON’T EVEN KNOW WHERE TO LOOK FOR OUR MOUNTAINEERS. COME ON, GIVE US THE SCHEDUAL THERE ARE THOSE WHO NEED TO MAKE THEIR PLANS AND CAN’T BECAUSE YOU HAVEN’T GIVEN US THE SCHEDUAL.
Here is the 2012 WVU schedule.
Due to television, only the first 3 weeks of the season are set. Other TV channels and kickoff times are usually set 6-10 days prior to kickoff. That’s the way it is with the big conferences.
