The first year of the Tom Herman era will include the Texas Longhorns playing nine games in nine weeks during Big 12 play, the conference revealed on Tuesday:

2017 conference schedule

Texas opens the season with a home game against Maryland on September, then hosts San Jose State before traveling to Los Angeles to play USC in a marquee match up on the 16th.

After that, the ‘Horns will take a week off, the only bye week of the season.

The start of conference play won’t be quite as difficult as opening against Oklahoma State and then Oklahoma, with both games away from Austin, but playing the Sooners, Cowboys, Bears, and then the Bears and Horned Frogs on the road will be the toughest stretch of the season by far.

The regular season will end with the post-Thanksgiving game against Texas Tech on a Saturday, so the team will have a normal week of preparation before facing the Red Raiders.
