Big 12: TCU-Texas may move to Thanksgiving

By Richard Durrett

Big 12 spokesman Bob Burda said the 2012 football schedule isn't completely set until television decides which times and special dates it's looking at for games -- including Thanksgiving.

The league is expecting the TCU-Texas game in Austin will be played on Thanksgiving night, which is one reason why both the Horned Frogs and Longhorns were given a bye week the previous Saturday.

"Judging by Texas' history of playing that day, we anticipate that game would be selected by TV to be played on Thanksgiving," Burda said.
