The Big 12 announced a 2:30 p.m. start for TCU’s game at Baylor on Nov. 5. The game will be televised on Fox.

For TCU, it’s a third consecutive 2:30 p.m. kickoff.

TCU’s last visit to Waco was in 2014, when a 61-58 final in a frenzied finish at McLane Stadium marked its only loss of the season. Baylor rallied from a 21-point deficit in the fourth quarter and shared the Big 12 championship with the Horned Frogs.

This year, Baylor is undefeated and remains in the running for a conference title, visiting Texas this week. TCU, coming off its worst loss as a Big 12 member, is home to Texas Tech.

The other Week 10 kickoffs in the Big 12 are 6:30 p.m. Thursday for Oklahoma at Iowa State, 11 a.m. for Texas at Texas Tech, and 2:30 or 6 p.m. for both Kansas at West Virginia and Oklahoma State at Kansas State.
