The Vic Schaefer era at Texas will tip off with a home game against SMU on Nov. 25, the Longhorns announced on Monday.

Schaefer’s debut as the fifth head coach in the history of the women’s basketball program at Texas will open a 25-game schedule for the 2020-21 season. Intriguing matchups against North Texas (Nov. 29), Texas A&M (Dec. 6) and Tennessee (Dec. 13) are also on the non-conference slate. Texas and Texas A&M last faced off during the 2014-15 season.

Texas won’t meet its first Big 12 foe until it hosts Kansas on Dec. 17. A trip to Kansas State on Dec. 21 will be the first away game for the Longhorns.
