Utah will play its first home conference game as a member of the Big 12 on Sept. 28 against a former Pac-12 South foil.

The Big 12 unveiled its full 2024 football schedule on Tuesday, officially setting the stage for the conference’s new era. Utah will officially join the league this summer alongside Arizona State, Arizona, and Colorado. The Utes will face all three in Big 12 play, but they won’t meet the Buffs on the final weekend of the regular season.

Utah’s 2024 schedule opens with nonconference games against Southern Utah (Thursday, Aug. 29), Baylor (Sept. 7), and Utah State on the road (Sept. 14). The game against the Baylor Bears will not count toward the Big 12 conference standings.

Big 12 play officially begins for the Utes on Sept. 21 when they head to Stillwater, Oklahoma, to face the Oklahoma State Cowboys in what should be one of the best games on the Big 12 schedule. Oklahoma State has played for two of the last three league titles. Meanwhile, Utah is likely to be one of the favorites to win the league in 2024.

On Sept. 28, Utah welcomes Arizona to Rice-Eccles Stadium for its first conference home game.

After the game against the Wildcats, Utah has a bye week before traveling to Tempe to battle Arizona State. That game will be played on Friday, Oct. 11, or Saturday, Oct. 12.

The Utes will get a bye week before hosting BYU on Nov. 9. That game will mark the Cougars’ first trip to Salt Lake City since November of 2018. BYU won the last meeting in 2021, but Utah has won 14 of the previous 18 matchups, including nine straight from 2010-19.

One week after the Holy War, Utah heads to Colorado to face Deion Sanders and the Buffs.

The regular season concludes on Friday, Nov. 29, in Orlando against Central Florida.
