College Football 2012 Schedule: Longhorned Toads! It's a weekend of Texas tussles

With Texas taking on TCU and Baylor facing off against Texas Tech in a Big 12, Lone Star showdown, it's a huge weekend deep in the heart.


Big football matchups abound for many of Texas's most prominent football teams this Saturday.

Pigskin fans can get their football started at 11 a.m. CT when the SMU Mustangs host the Tulsa Golden Hurricane at Gerald Ford Stadium. SMU has a chance to play spoiler, as Tulsa is currently undefeated in Conference USA play.

Midway through that one, fans can flip over to watch the Baylor Bears host the Texas Tech Red Raiders at 1:30 p.m. CT. The Baylor faithful are flying high after last week's 52-24 demolition upset of the powerhouse Kansas State Wildcats, and would love for the Bears to lock up their third straight win at home.

At 6:30 p.m. CT, the Texas Longhorns will host the TCU Horned Frogs in the night's marquee matchup. The Longhorns are looking for their fifth consecutive win, while TCU is just trying to right the ship after dropping three of their last four games.

Here's the TV info for these premier games:

SMU vs. Tulsa (FX, 11 a.m. CT)
