Nebraska-OU series set

Nebraska and Oklahoma announced a home and home series beginning in 2021.

The Huskers will travel to Oklahoma to face the Sooners on Sept. 18, 2021. The next year Oklahoma makes the return trip on Sept. 17, 2022.

The two historic rivals last played each other in the 2010 Big 12 Championship. Oklahoma overcame an early deficit to down Nebraska 23-20.

Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne said he was pleased to announce the two-game series.

“Our rivalry with Oklahoma has been one of the great traditional matchups in the history of college football,” Osborne said. “The games between the two schools were generally to decide a conference championship, and many times helped determine the national champion. Those matchups were always played with great intensity on the field, but with a great deal of respect from both sides and among the fan bases.

“I know our fans look forward to non-conference games against high-profile opponents like Oklahoma. I’m pleased we were able to finalize this series.”
