The Big 12 Conference announced its adoption of a 10-game football schedule this year. Along with a nine-game conference slate, Big 12 teams will also play a non-conference home opponent.

A conference championship game could be moved to December 12 or 19. It’s the final Power 5 conference to announce its fall schedule.

Broader clarity around the NCAA fall sports season could come as soon today as the NCAA Board of Governors is set to meet. Should the NCAA cancel the fall sports season, the Power 5 is reportedly willing to host their own championships. The championship for the 130 Football Bowl Subdivision programs is also not controlled by the NCAA; it is controlled by the 10 conferences, ESPN, and the College Football Playoff.

Other Power 5 Conference Plans:

ACC: 11-game schedule with one non-conference game

Big 10: 10-game conference-only

Pac-12: 10-game conference-only

SEC: 10-game conference-only
