Oklahoma State Football announces 2020 schedule; Bedlam comes early and closes out with Texas

The Oklahoma State Football schedule for the 2020 season was released early Tuesday morning, and though subject to change, it looks as if some major changes in the structure of the Cowboys’ schedule have been made.

The Pokes open the 2020 season on Sept. 3 (Thursday) at home in Boone Pickens Stadium with a matchup against the Oregon State Beavers, similar to the start of the 2019 season.

This Thursday night matchup will also be marked as the fifth time in six years the Cowboys have opened their season on a Thursday night.

The Cowboys took a 52-36 win over the Beavers in Corvallis on Aug. 30, and the 2020 matchup will be only the second meeting ever between the two teams.

The three-game home slate continues as the Tulsa Golden Hurricane comes to Stillwater on Sept. 12. It will be the 74th meeting between the two teams dating back to 1914, and OSU will enter the game with a 41-27-5 all-time record.

Continuing on with their non-conference schedule, the Pokes stay situated in Stillwater as they welcome Western Illinois on Sept. 19. This will be the first ever meeting between these two teams.

After completing all three of their non-conference games on their home turf, the Cowboys will have an open date on Sept. 26 to prepare to hit the road for a battle against the TCU Horned Frogs in Fort Worth, Texas on Oct. 3.

The Pokes return home to face Iowa State on Oct. 10 before journeying up to Lawrence, Kansas, to face the Jayhawks on Oct. 17.

Oct. 24 will have a strange feeling to it as the legendary Bedlam rivalry game is scheduled the earliest it has been since the Cowboys played the Sooners on Oct. 24, 1998. This game will take place in Norman seeing as the Bedlam game this year, Nov. 30, will be housed in Stillwater.

OSU students are in for a {trick or} treat in 2020 as America’s Greatest Homecoming will fall on Oct. 31 giving the Pokes a chance to compete against the Texas Tech Red Raiders on Halloween night inside Boone Pickens Stadium.

The Cowboys journey to Waco, Texas, afterwards to face the Baylor Bears on Nov. 7 followed by a home matchup against the West Virginia Mountaineers on Nov. 14. A final road trip to Manhattan, Kansas, will give the Cowboys a chance to battle the Kansas State Wildcats on Nov. 21 before returning home for their final game of the regular season.

Nov. 28 will wrap things up for the Cowboys as they host the Texas Longhorns marking this as the first time ever the Cowboys have faced the Longhorns in the regular season finale.
