Texas fans will have to wait to find out if next week’s visit to Royal-Memorial Stadium will be done during the afternoon or evening.
The Big 12 Conference announced on Monday that Texas and West Virginia will play at either 2:30 p.m., 6:30 p.m. or 7 p.m. on Nov. 3. The Big 12 also declined to reveal a start time for Texas Tech’s home game on Nov. 3 against Oklahoma. The Big 12 did state the kickoff times for the other three games on its schedule for that Saturday.
It has yet to be decided if FOX, ABC or ESPN will televise the West Virginia/Texas and Oklahoma/Texas Tech games.
