Alabama announces home-and-home series with Oklahoma
Alabama continues to beef up its non-conference schedule by adding another traditional college football power to the program’s future schedule by announcing a home-and-home series with Oklahoma.
The first matchup between the two schools will take play at Oklahoma on Sept. 11, 2032, with the return trip occurring the following season on Sept. 10, 2033, at Alabama.
“We’ve worked diligently at adding high-caliber home-and-home series to our future football non-conference schedules, and we are excited to announce this one with Oklahoma for the 2032 and 2033 seasons,” Alabama director of athletics Greg Byrne said via statement. “Alabama and Oklahoma are two of the most storied programs in college football history, and this certainly will give both teams and fan bases a tremendous opportunity during the regular season.”
Nick Saban also released a statement following the news:
“Alabama and Oklahoma are two of the most tradition-rich programs in college football history, and we are pleased to be able to add a home-and-home series with them to our schedule in 2032 and 2033. We played an exciting game with OU this past season in the Orange Bowl and matchups like this are so important to college football. It is not only great for the fans, but our team always enjoys challenges like these outside of SEC play.”
According to Alabama, the two programs have met six times with the Sooners currently holding the all-time edge in the series at 3-2-1. Of course, the Crimson Tide most recently beat Oklahoma in the Orange Bowl, 45-34 last season.
