    After a dismal opening campaign in the Big 12, the Houston Cougars and head coach Dana Holgorsen parted ways. Willie Fritz arrives after a highly successful stint with the Tulane Green Wave, looking to transform the Cougars into a conference contender.

    According to the CFN Strength of Schedule, the Houston 2024 football schedule is the fifth most difficult in college football. It begins with a three-game out-of-conference slate featuring a resurgent UNLV Rebels team that made it to the Mountain West Championship Game last fall and an Oklahoma Sooners side looking to make an immediate impact in the SEC.

    They should be the favorite against the Rice Owls in Week 3, but the Cougars could enter Big 12 play with a losing record. The conference operates a nine-game format, with teams alternating between four and five road games each season. The Houston 2024 football schedule will feature five Big 12 games away from TDECU Stadium, with several difficult matchups included.

    Their Big 12 campaign opens on the road against a Cincinnati Bearcats team they lost to last fall, with a Friday night trip to face the TCU Horned Frogs sandwiching their home opener. Road games against the Kansas Jayhawks and Arizona Wildcats pitch them against two conference contenders while they wrap up the season against a BYU Cougars team they’ve never beaten.

    Hosting the Iowa State Cyclones is preferable to a trip to Ames, while they avoid multiple trips to Utah by hosting the Utes in late October. As the Houston 2024 football schedule takes the Cougars into November, they’ll take on the Kansas State Wildcats — another title contender — before wrapping up their home slate by facing a Baylor Bears team they beat last year.
