The UCF Knights and the Oklahoma Sooners are close to finalizing a home-and-home football series, UCFSports.com has reported.
The series would begin next year at Bright House Networks Stadium in Orlando. UCF would then travel to Norman to face Oklahoma in 2013. The games would be the first ever between the two schools.
In 2012, UCF is currently slated to travel to Akron and Ohio State and host Florida International and Kansas State. However, UCFSports.com also reports that Kansas State intends to buy out of the 2012 game with the Knights. The imminent cancellation of that game opened the door for negotiations with the Sooners.
Oklahoma’s only non-conference game scheduled for 2012 is Notre Dame. They were set to face TCU, but that will now be a conference game since the Horned Frogs are joining the Big 12.
