The Oklahoma Sooners and the Nebraska Cornhuskers may schedule a 2020 and 2021 home-and-home football series, USA Today has reported.
Discussions for the series are preliminary and are dependent on the future Big Ten conference scheduling format. Nebraska AD Tom Osborne said they “can’t make a decision until we know if the Big Ten is going from eight conference games to nine.”
Back in June, Nebraska announced that they were leaving the Big 12 and joining the Big Ten Conference for the 2011 season.
Nebraska and Oklahoma do not play each other in the 2010 regular season, but could meet in the Big 12 Championship game at Cowboys Stadium in Arlington. Both schools are currently undefeated and ranked in the Top 10 of the Coaches Poll (Nebraska #6, Oklahoma #7).
The Sooners lead the overall series against the Cornhuskers 44-38-3.
