Revised football schedule announced for the Sooners

Revised football schedule announced for the Sooners

NORMAN- Oklahoma football will move forward this fall with an adjusted schedule. 

On the heels of the Big 12 Conference announcing football would proceed, the conference updated schedules to move conference play back until Sept. 26. 

The Sooners will now host the Kansas State Wildcats on Sept. 26, replacing the Baylor Bears as Oklahoma’s conference opener. The Wildcats were originally supposed to make their trip to play the Sooners in November.

Iowa State is sandwiched between Kansas State and Oklahoma’s marquee matchup south of the Red River. 

Despite the State Fair of Texas getting canceled, the Sooners will still face the Texas Longhorns on Oct. 10 in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. The annual Red River Rivalry game is the only contest on Oklahoma’s new schedule to take place on the original date. 

Bedlam will now take place in late November, which fans have grown accustomed to over the past decade. Though the Sooners will host the Cowboys on Nov. 21, Oklahoma will still have two games afterward before the end of the season.

Oklahoma has three bye weeks, one following the season opener and preceding conference play (Sept. 19), one following Texas (Oct. 17), and third coming before Bedlam (Nov. 14).

The Big 12 Championship game has been tentatively moved to either Dec. 12 or Dec. 19, giving the conference flexibility to create a third bye week for teams if necessary. 

Missouri State is still Oklahoma’s non-conference foe, with the season opener taking place on Sept. 12.
