The Oklahoma Sooners’ streak of non-primetime games on the road will end on their final game of the 2022 regular season in Lubbock. The Oklahoma-Texas Tech matchup will be broadcasted on FS1 at 6:30 P.M.
The Sooners and Red Raiders are both 5-5 on the season, but the Raiders are 3-4 in Big 12 play, while the Sooners are just 2-5.
It’s difficult to call Joey McGuire’s first year in Lubbock anything other than a success. Both the football program and fanbase have been revitalized.
As for the Sooners, it’s difficult to get a gauge on just how meaningful this game is without knowing the result of Bedlam, which is also getting a primetime kickoff.

If the Sooners win against Oklahoma State, they will have already achieved bowl eligibility heading into the final week of the season. Finishing the season with back-to-back wins and a 7-5 record would get the Sooners more momentum heading into recruiting season. Should they lose Bedlam, their regular season finale means so much more. Bowl eligibility would be on the line.
A primetime kickoff in Lubbock was the worst-case scenario for OU. The Red Raiders and their fanbase would love to end Brent Venables’ first season with a loss.
