OU vs. Miami is now slated for an 11 AM kickoff, and will be televised by ABC. As the linked SoonerSports.com article indicates, it’s the second game of the season for both teams, on Saturday, September 8, at beautiful Owen Field. Any potential Pride members or parents reading know what that means: calisthenics in the dark!
Other than the Big 12 Championship game, it’s still the only game for which we have a definite kickoff time. (Although it was previously announced that the Sept. 21 game at Tulsa will kickoff at 7:00 PM, the SoonerSports.com Web site still lists it as “TBD.” You can see that here, and the Pride-related schedule (complete with unofficial 7:00 PM kickoff in Tulsa) has been updated on our Events calendar.
Update: The OU Athletic Dept. has now announced that the season and home opener, OU vs. North Texas on September 1, has been picked up by FSN and will kickoff at 6:00 PM. The Sooners host Utah State on September 15, and kickoff for that has been set at 2:30 PM, although no television plans are finalized. The calendars have been updated.
