    Oklahoma and Nebraska officially sign to home-and-home series for 2021 and 2022

    Huskers-Sooners to Renew Rivalry - Huskers.com - Nebraska Athletics Official Web Site

    It's been rumored for a long time, but now it's official. Nebraska will play at Oklahoma in 2021 in honor of the 50th anniversary of the "Game of the Century" and Oklahoma will make a return trip to Lincoln in 2022.

    It was a fun rivalry to watch through the Big 8 years. I'm kind of glad to see them be able to resume it. Looking through the press release though, I thought Oklahoma had a little better lead in the all-time series than what they actually do. OU leads 45-38-3.

    Hmm, it probably doesn't matter much at the end of the day, but I was really hoping to see the remaining Big 12 members to refuse to play the defectors. Screw Nebraska.

    I personally want to have a series with Missouri and beat the living crap out of them.

    Only a matter of time before Texas and A&M schedule their own series again.

    Oklahoma seems to be giving a gift to Nebraska by making this deal. It could help Nebraska recruit in Oklahoma at a time when they are losing some of their strength of recruitment in the region.

    That seems OK right now, but in a way, that has potential to add a little more fuel to the rivalry fire.

    Although I somehow doubt OU fans care that NU left, and NU probably doesn't care what ex-Big 8 fans think about the Big Ten move, either.

    One thing I'll say about both programs — each has played at least one non-conference game against a non-pushover during the past decade ... generally prominent programs and/or recently-relevant teams from power-6 leagues. That's a little off-topic, but didn't dig into it until I saw this thread.

    They are pretty much a lock to play each other again on January 1.
