As the season rolls along with Oklahoma at 2-0 and a highly anticipated road matchup with Nebraska ahead, the Big 12 opener for the Oklahoma Sooners will be played under the lights on Sept. 24.
To open conference play, the Sooners will put their fast-pace offense and new-look defense on display in prime time against the Kansas State Wildcats. Kickoff is set for 7 p.m. and can be seen on Fox.
The Sooners have a complicated recent history with Kansas State. The Wildcats won back-to-back games in 2019 and 2020 before the Sooners finally broke head coach Chris Klieman’s winning street in 2021.
Last year’s matchup proved Spencer Rattler’s best game in the 2021 season. He was an efficient 22 of 25 for 243 yards and 2 touchdowns as he moved Oklahoma up and down the field methodically for the 37-31 win.

It will be another opportunity for the Sooners to put their brand new LED light show on display after their debut in Week 2 against Kent State. It will be a fantastic atmosphere for a game with early Big 12 title race implications.
