The Sooners will travel to Dallas for the Red River Showdown against Texas on Oct. 6 before their only bye of the season on Oct. 13. They'll close the month at TCU on Oct. 20 and at home against Kansas State on Oct. 27.

The Sooners will play four games in November, starting with a road contest against Texas Tech on the 3rd. They return to Norman for matchups against Oklahoma State and Kansas on Nov. 10 and 17, and close the regular season at West Virginia on Friday, Nov. 23.

The top two finishers in the regular season standings will compete for the conference title in the Big 12 Football Championship Game, which is scheduled for Saturday, Dec. 1. The championship game will be played in Arlington, Texas' AT&T Stadium through 2021.
