ABILENE, Texas -- Hardin-Simmons' football has announced its 2012 schedule and it will feature a revamped conference schedule and three non-conference games.
 
The Cowboys will open the season at home on Sept. 1 against Willamette (Ore.) and then hit the road for two straight non-conference games. HSU plays at Linfield (Ore.) on Sept. 8 and then goes to Tyler to play Texas College on Sept. 15.
 
"We have a good non-conference schedule," said HSU head coach Jesse Burleson. "Willamette was a very good team that we beat early in the season up there this year and that game went down to the wire. We have had some good battles with Linfield over the years and Texas College gives us a non-conference game in state. The non-conference portion will be a challenge that we hope prepares us for league play."
 
HSU has an open week on Sept. 22 and then will start its conference slate at home against Howard Payne on Sept. 29. Five of the seven conference games will be at the same location they were in the 2011 season.
 
"With the reworking of the ASC schedule, we have several games that are in the same location as they were this year," said Burleson. "There is some change to the order and that is fine with us. We are seeing some teams at the backend of the schedule that have been at the front end for several years so it will be different."
 
HSU travels to Marshall for East Texas Baptist in a 6 p.m. game on Oct. 6 and returns home for Mary Hardin-Baylor on Oct. 13.
 
Texas Lutheran will be at HSU for homecoming on Oct. 20 and HSU travels to Louisiana College on Oct. 27.
 
The Cowboys play Mississippi College at home on Nov. 3 and close the regular season at Sul Ross State in Alpine. 
 
Hardin-Simmons is coming off a 6-4 season in 2011.
