Texas Tech and Texas announced today that their game next season has been moved to September 19th. ABC wants to show this game at prime time, but needed the game move to accommodate their schedule.
Said Texas head coach Mack Brown:
I really am excited about it. It’ll be good to be playing on primetime in September when there are not as many national games that people like to look at.
Texas’ non-conference game against Central Florida is being moved to November 7th, where the Texas Tech game was previously. Texas Tech had a bye that weekend.
This certainly addresses the concerns about Texas’ powderpuff early schedule, but doesn’t really do anything about their weak non-conference schedule.
