Oklahoma-Michigan: Agree to Home & Home Series

Posted: Updated:

The Sooners have scheduled a rematch with their 1976 Orange Bowl opponent.  Oklahoma and Michigan have agreed to a home and home series to be played in 2025 and 2026.

OU will get the first meeting in 2025 in Norman and then will travel to face the Wolverines in the Big House in 2026.   This is just the second and third meetings between these two tradition rich programs.

The Sooners won that '76 Orange Bowl 14-to-6 and captured their sixth national championship.

“We remain committed to playing games that celebrate the history and excitement of college football,” said OU Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics and Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione. “We're grateful for head coach Bob Stoops, who shares that commitment. Oklahoma and Michigan represent two of the most iconic names in American sport and we look forward to a series that will be marked by mutual respect and admiration. We also know how truly special these opportunities are for student-athletes, as well as our fans and college football fans everywhere. I want to express my appreciation to Michigan Athletics Director Dave Brandon, who shares our philosophy.”

“Over a span of many, many years, we have emphasized the importance of a strength-of-schedule strategy. The new College Football Playoff format underscores that philosophy, as well. A well-balanced schedule creates the proper challenges for our program and prepares us in our pursuit of championships.”
