Seventeen regular-season home games and an Oct. 28 exhibition against UNC Pembroke inside the Fertitta Center highlight the University of Houston's Men's Basketball 2023-24 schedule after the Big 12 Conference released complete team conference schedules on Tuesday.

Under the leadership of Head Coach Kelvin Sampson, Houston enters a new era when it tips off in the Big 12 for the first time in 2023-24.

All 18 Big 12 games will be shown on the ESPN family of networks with two contests being aired on CBS (vs. Texas, Feb. 17 / at Baylor, Feb. 24). Four of the 18 games will be shown on Big 12 Now on ESPN+.

Houston will meet Cincinnati, Iowa State, Kansas, Texas and UCF in home-and away series. The Cougars meet Kansas State, Oklahoma State, Texas Tech and West Virginia in home games inside the Fertitta Center only and travel to face Baylor, BYU, Oklahoma and TCU on the road only.

The Cougars open league play when they play host to West Virginia inside the Fertitta Center on Saturday, Jan. 6. Houston goes on to meet Texas Tech (Jan. 17), UCF (Jan. 20) and Kansas State (Jan. 27) at home in the month with road tilts at Iowa State (Jan. 9), at TCU (Jan. 13), at BYU (Jan. 23) and at Texas (Jan. 29) to close out January.

In February, Houston opens the month against Kansas (Feb. 3) in the Cougars' first road trip to Lawrence, KS., since Dec. 15, 1984. Additional road games in the month include at Cincinnati (Feb. 10) and at Baylor (Feb. 24) with home games against Oklahoma State (Feb. 6), Texas (Feb. 17), Iowa State (Feb. 19) and Cincinnati (Feb. 27) inside the Fertitta Center.
