Oklahoma is set to wrap up non-conference play on Saturday when they host the Nebraska Cornhuskers in the third of a four-game stretch of home contests to open up the 2021 season.
After doing battle with the old rival, the Sooners will open up conference play against West Virginia which we now know will be a primetime kick in Norman with the Big 12 revealing that the game will have a 6:30 p.m. CT start and be broadcast on ABC.
There is some level of irony to be found here in that a large point of tension between Oklahoma and the Big 12 has been on the insistence that the Sooners play the lion's share of 11 a.m. CT games - especially ones in Norman.
But, sure enough, the first conference game of the 2021 season gets a night time start which will be sure to make players and fans very happy.
The Mountaineers currently sit at 1-1 on the season after dropping their opener against Maryland and then bouncing back with a 66-0 demolition of Long Island over the weekend.
Neal Brown’s bunch will wrap up the non-conference slate with a big home matchup with No. 15 Virginia Tech on Saturday before heading to Norman.
The Sooners, meanwhile, will indeed host Nebraska at 11 a.m. CT with the game being televised on FOX.
