STILLWATER, Okla. – Oklahoma State released its official football schedule Friday, with all of the dates complete and finalized.
Of particular note is the Cowboys’ second game of the season, a rematch of the Alamo Bowl with Arizona that will be played on a Thursday. OSU won last year’s game 36-10 to win 11 games in a season for the first time in program history.
Because the departures of Colorado and Nebraska leave the Big 12 with only 10 teams, there will no longer be two divisions, all 10 teams will play each other every season and there will not be a Big 12 championship.
The Cowboys will finish the regular season with a Bedlam showdown against Oklahoma on the same day that normally would have been reserved for the conference championship game.
The Big 12 released the schedules for its teams last week, but they were not completely finalized. OSU’s final schedule did not change from that preliminary one, but there was a possibility that games could be moved. Not anymore.
