AUSTIN  (AP/CBSDFW.COM) – It will be Texas vs. TCU on Thanksgiving week under the 2012 Big 12 schedule.

The 2012 slate includes Big 12 newcomers TCU and West Virginia, and features a 10-team, nine-game, round-robin schedule.

TCU gets their first taste of BIG 12 action when they open the season by traveling to Lawrence, KS to take on Kansas.

The Longhorns and Horned Frogs play Nov. 24, the Saturday after Thanksgiving. That game takes the place of the traditional Texas vs. Texas A&M rivalry that was played on Thanksgiving.

That traditional rivalry ended last season when the Aggies’ decided to leave the Big 12 for the Southeastern Conference.

Also on Nov 24,  Baylor and Texas Tech square off at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington in the “Texas Farm Bureau Insurance Shootout”.

It’s possible Texas vs. TCU could still get moved to the Thanksgiving. The league schedule released Tuesday says dates are subject to change and adjustments are expected to accommodate the league’s television partners.

Texas begins Big 12 play Sept. 29 at Oklahoma State. The Longhorns host Big 12 newcomer West Virginia on Oct. 6 and play rival Oklahoma at the Cotton Bowl in Dallas on Oct. 13.
