The Big 12 presidents and chancellors approved a scheduling model that will include nine conference games, plus one nonconference game, multiple sources within the league told ESPN on Tuesday evening.
The conference is expected to put out a release with further details on Tuesday, but one source said the season could begin in mid-to-late September.
The nine-plus-one model was the preferred model presented to the board, which considered several options.
Big 12 commissioner Bob Bowlsby had told ESPN last week that the board would be armed with all of the information it needed to make a decision if that’s what it wanted to do.
Every Power 5 conference has now determined its scheduling model for the season, but the Big Ten still has yet to release the details of its conference-only schedule.
