The Oklahoma Sooners are reportedly set to open the 2016 football season against the University of Houston at NRG Stadium (formerly Reliant Stadium) in Houston. 

The deal isn't done, but reports indicate that the two sides are finalizing the agreement.  The event, called the Advocare Texas kickoff, began in 2013 when Oklahoma State beat Mississippi State 21-3.

The Sooners are 2-0 all time against the Cougars, smashing them in the 1981 Sun Bowl and again in Norman in 2004.
