The Huskers and Sooners will play a home-and-home series in 2021 and 2022
The Nebraska Athletic Department announced Thursday that it has signed a contract with the University of Oklahoma. The two long-time rivals will renew their historic rivalry on Sept. 18, 2021, at Oklahoma. The teams will meet at Memorial Stadium in Lincoln on Sept. 17, 2022.
“Our rivalry with Oklahoma has been one of the great traditional matchups in the history of college football,” Nebraska Athletic Director Tom Osborne said.
The games often decided a conference championship, and many times helped determine the national champion. “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,” Osborne said.
The long-time Big Six, Big Seven, Big Eight and Big 12 foes have met 86 times on the gridiron, with Oklahoma holding a 45-38-3 advantage in the all-time series.
The 2021 game in Norman will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the 1971 “Game of the Century” between the schools.
