Tulane and Oklahoma have inked a three-game series, ESPN’s Brett McMurphy reports.
The Sooners and Green Wave will tee it up in Norman on Sept. 16, 2017 and Sept. 7, 2024, with Oklahoma paying a visit to Tulane’s Yulman Stadium on Sept. 4, 2021.
The schools have never faced off on the gridiron.
NOLA.com reports on the agreement, including this statement:
“We are excited to begin the series with the University of Oklahoma. There were a lot of moving pieces required to put this together and I thank my good friend (Oklahoma Director of Athletics) Joe Castiglione for working with us to ensure Oklahoma would come back to Yulman Stadium as soon as scheduling would allow,” Tulane athletic director Rick Dickson said in a release issued by the athletic department.
NewsOK.com mentions that this will complete the Sooners’ 2017 non-conference slate.
Additionally, Ole Miss and Tulane have modified their existing four-game contract. The Rebels and Green Wave count meetings in 2010 and 2012 among their 70-plus meetings. That 2012 contest was played in the Mercedes-Benz Superdome in New Orleans. Tulane is 29-42 all-time against Ole Miss, with their most recent victory a 14-9 decision on November 5, 1988.
Ole Miss will visit Tulane in 2023, with a return visit to Oxford planned for 2025.
