Oklahoma football announced Wednesday morning a home-and-home series with UCLA that will take place in 2018 and 2019. The Sooners will host the Bruins in Norman on September 8th, 2018 and make the return trip to play a game in the Rose Bowl on September 14h, 2019.
That's the good news.
The bad news is however the previously scheduled home-and-home series with LSU that was also supposed to be on the 2018 and 2019 calender is now being rescheduled. Well actually what they said was they would attempt to reschedule it, so now that series may or may not ever happen. Which has to be disappointing for a number of OU fans anxious to see their team match up with an upper echelon SEC team both in Norman and on the road in Louisiana.
A couple other scheduling announcement, OU has also added Akron to their 2015 non-conference slate which should finalize that year's schedule (barring cancellations of course) that also features a trip to Knoxville to face Tennessee and a home game against Tulsa. Also Louisiana-Monroe will be coming back to Norman in 2016.
Pretty sure we know the answer, but we'll ask anyway. Are you happy with the addition of UCLA at the apparent cost of losing two games against LSU?
