OU Football - Finally, the official-official schedule is released

New, 7 comments

We pointed out the biggest change in the post directly below, that of the Big 12 deciding to move the Iowa State game to Thanksgiving weekend.  So, much to the interest of our friends at Tomahawk Nation we will still have a bye week in between our opener against Tulsa and the rematch/premiere non-con matchup of 2011.  For the first time (ever?) I can remember, OU will have a conference game before completing their non-con as they will welcome Mizzou to Norman (hopefully to exact some revenge) on Sept. 24th.  The second bye week will now be between the A&M and Baylor game rather than over Thanksgiving weekend. 

So things didn't change drastically necessarily, but there were a couple tweeks.  As always, feel free to be heard in the comments.  Only 121 days left till kickoff!
