Next season will bring some new variety to Oklahoma’s schedule.
The Big 12 released its schedule for the 2023 season on Tuesday, which brings some notable changes with the additions of BYU, Cincinnati, Houston and Central Florida to the new 14-team conference. It’s also notable for the Sooners, who could be entering their final season in the Big 12 before moving to the Southeastern Conference.
The Sooners will play three of the four new Big 12 teams next season. They get two of them on the road — Cincinnati and BYU — while they’ll host Central Florida.
The three new teams replace Kansas State, Texas Tech and Baylor on the Sooners’ schedule, which they would’ve played in the previous 10-team, round-robin iteration of the conference slate. All three teams defeated the Sooners in 2022.
The Sooners travel to Cincinnati on Sept. 23 to open the conference play. BYU will be their final road game on Nov. 18, the week before the season finale.
The Sooners conference home games include Iowa State (Sept. 30), UCF (Oct. 21), West Virginia (No. 11) and TCU on Friday, Nov. 24.
The Sooners other conference road games include Texas (Oct. 7, at Cotton Bowl), Kansas (Oct. 28) and Oklahoma State (Nov. 4).
