With 11 days remaining until the Oklahoma Sooners’ season opener, the kickoff times have been announced for the games against Missouri State, Kansas State and Texas.
Can you feel it? That’s the sense of normalcy in the air following the announcements of PPV for Missouri State and an 11 a.m. kickoff for OU-Texas. It’s oddly comforting, isn’t it? A “Big Noon Saturday” start time for Kansas State is just the icing on the cake.
Speaking of which, 11 a.m. time slot is probably going to be an even more likely scenario for the Sooners in 2020. Keep in mind that this “Big Noon Saturday” thing is FOX’s little niche in the Saturday football schedule, as the network doesn’t like to go head-to-head with ABC/ESPN for the primetime slot. With the Big Ten currently out of the picture, Oklahoma’s weekly game is frequently going to be a prime candidate for this.
