Tuesday afternoon, the Kansas University football program announced its three non-conference games for the 2012 season, which will be the second year for the Big 12 without Colorado and Nebraska in the mix.

The 2012 schedule, which likely will feature the Jayhawks playing all nine remaining Big 12 opponents, includes home games against South Dakota State and Rice and a road game at Northern Illinois.

The Big 12 portion of the 2012 season has not yet been announced. What is known, however, is that the Jayhawks will open the year on Sept. 1 at home against South Dakota State.

KU then will host Rice in the first of a two-game series on Sept. 8. The Jayhawks also will play at Rice in 2013. On Sept. 22 KU will travel to Northern Illinois in a return game for the Huskies' trip to Lawrence in 2011.

KU has played all three opponents in the past, defeating South Dakota State 86-6 in 1947; knocking off Rice, 33-7, in the 1961 Bluebonnet Bowl; and falling, 37-34, to Northern Illinois in the first game of the Mike Gottfried era in 1983.

The 80-point victory against SDSU is second in history behind an 83-0 win against Washington (Mo.) in 1923. The win over Rice was KU’s second ever bowl appearance and first bowl victory.

The last time Kansas played just three regular-season non-conference games was 2005.

KU will never make the top 25 again with that kind of scheduling lmao.. Even if they go undefeated in 2012 they still wont make the top 25.. Not when the only ranked teams they play will be Texas and OU and you know they aint gona win both those games let alone one of them lol.. If KU actually ponied up and played outside of their comfort zone once in awhile by playing tougher teams, they might actually get good.

This sucks. I was glad to see CU go, but the KU-NU streak should be kept alive for tradition's sake if nothing else. Thanks Nebraska, now we have to play Texas, OU, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech, and TAMU every year. I never like the Big 10 (11) before, but I effing hate them all now. I hope all the bad things in life happen to the Big 10 schools, their athletics programs, and all of their faculty, students, staff, and alumni.

Goodbye, NU. Remember that you were the ones to end our historic rivalry. It's too bad about CU too.
