In late May, any piece of football news is a blessing for fans clamoring for the season’s return in three months. On Thursday, they received a little something to chew on and look forward to with television information being announced for two of Oklahoma’s first three games.
The Sooners will open in New Orleans against Tulane with an 11 a.m. CT kickoff on Sept. 4 that will be broadcast on ABC. While fans probably will not be thrilled about the morning kickoff time, the time slot will provide Oklahoma with one of the bigger stages of opening weekend with many eyes glued to Heisman hopeful Spencer Rattler’s first game of the year.
The Sooners will return home to face Western Carolina the following week on Sept. 11 before hosting rival Nebraska on Sept. 18 for the first time since the Cornhuskers left for the Big Ten.
We don’t have a kickoff time for that game yet, but we know the game will be carried on a Fox Network. Whether that means Fox itself or Fox Sports 1 will be determined – although it can probably be safely assumed the game will be featured of Fox’s “Big Noon Kickoff.”
Sooners Wire will continue to provide updates as more pieces of Oklahoma’s 2021 schedule fall into place.
A FOX Sports official release has confirmed that Oklahoma’s game against Nebraska will kick off at 11 a.m. CT and be broadcast on FOX.
