Basketball team announces Big 12 schedule

The University of Texas will have 11 of its 16 Big 12 Conference contests televised nationally according to the 2005-06 league scheduled released Thursday by the conference office.
During Big 12 competition, the Longhorns will face South Division foes Baylor, Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, Texas A&M and Texas Tech twice and will play each member of the North Division once. North Division foes who will visit Austin are Colorado (Jan. 7), Nebraska (Feb. 11) and Kansas (Feb. 25).

Texas is scheduled to make five appearances on ESPN, including two contests as part of the network's "Big Monday" package (at Iowa State, Jan. 9; vs. Oklahoma State, Jan. 23). The Longhorns will have their home games against Texas A&M (Feb. 4, State Farm Lone Star Showdown) and Kansas (Feb. 25) and a road contest against Oklahoma (Jan. 28) televised by ESPN.

UT also will make three appearances on ESPN2 (at Missouri, Feb. 1; at Texas Tech, Feb. 6; at Texas A&M, Mar. 1), two on ABC (vs. Nebraska, Feb. 11; at Oklahoma State, Feb. 19) and one on CBS (vs. Oklahoma, Mar. 5). In addition, Texas has at least four league games on ESPN+ as part of the Big12 Conference Television Network package.

UT's non-conference schedule, along with times and television assignments, will be announced later.

I know it's a long way off, but I can't help but get excited about this team already. Gibson, Aldridge, Tucker (is he studying?), and some hot new freshmen. This is going to be Texas' best non-T.J. Ford team.
