A year removed from being the site of Fox’s Big Noon Kickoff, next week’s Oklahoma Sooners vs. Baylor Bears game has been given a 2:00 p.m. kickoff and will be available on ESPN+.
The Sooners have not had a primetime matchup since their loss to Kansas State back in week four. With Baylor and Oklahoma both in the middle of disappointing seasons, that streak will continue.
The last time these two teams saw each other, the 7-2 Bears ended the 9-0 Sooners’ hopes at an undefeated season in a very frustrating day for Lincoln Riley’s offense. Caleb Williams had his worst game as a Sooner, and the cracks in the foundations started to show in Norman.

It’s easy to wonder if the Sooners have hosted their final primetime matchup this season. OU has just one more home game after next week’s tilt with Baylor. The Sooners will host Oklahoma State in this year’s version of Bedlam. Looking at the other games on the Big 12 slate for that week, I don’t see Oklahoma vs. Oklahoma State getting stuck with a daytime kickoff.
