owenfield OU Football’s 2014 Schedule Has Been Finalized

Image via NewsOK

When the 2014 Big 12 football schedules were initially announced back in November, Oklahoma was listed with two ‘or’ dates on their schedule. OU’s game at Iowa State was tentatively schedule for either Thursday, Oct. 30th OR Saturday, Nov. 1. Additionally, OU’s home contest against Oklahoma State was scheduled for either Saturday, Nov. 29 OR Saturday, Dec. 6.

However, credit to Allen Kenney of Blatant Homerism who recently noticed that those two ‘or’ dates were no longer listed on OU’s online schedule. Which led me to reach out to Oklahoma’s assistant athletic director, Pete Moris, to confirm whether or not the online schedule was accurate and the 2014 schedule had indeed been finalized. He was kind enough to confirm that the schedule listed online was accurate.

It’s important to keep in mind however that because of the Big 12 Conference’s television agreements, all schedules are subject to change in the future.

So if you were holding off making any plans because of the two previously scheduled tentative dates, it should be safe for you to go ahead and make those plans.

UPDATE: Not related to the 2014 schedule necessarily, but more spring football related. OU’s Kenny Mossman has also confirmed that the Red/White game will be broadcast on Fox Sports again, just as it was last year.

    I’ve gotta figure out which game I’m going to. I didn’t get the chance to make it to one last year and it sucked. I’d really like to go to bedlam and watch the pukes get their teeth kicked in. That’s always fun.

    • dahldennsull

      Well I can’t go to the Baylor game and need to sell my tickets to another sooner if you are interested in that game haha

      • pitbull17

        I can guarantee OU will be fired up for that game! That weekend falls right in between my 2 biggest hunting weeks, might be perfect.

        • Sooner Ray

          Maybe you can squeeze in some Bear hunting?

    • Ed Cotter

      I didn’t get to a game last year due to some family commitments, but this next season the family and I are going to Norman for the Tennessee game. Should be a blast.

      • pitbull17

        It will be awesome just because of the tradition of both programs. Plus OU gets to beat another sec team.

        • EasTex

          Already some Vol fans are talking bovine excrement.

          • Sooner Ray

            Bullish Crapoli eh?

          • EasTex

            SR, you and JK have GOT to see this.

          • Sooner Ray

            HAHA, thanks Tex. I love those things, could watch them all evening.

          • EasTex

            Bet his pucker factor was 10. LOL.

          • J.K. Abbott

            BAwhahhaha funny. Thanks for laugh ETexas.

          • SoonerGoneEast

            What is it about orange and delusional idiocy. They always seem to occupy the same space.

          • EasTex

            And they share the same acronym. They must be related.

          • Sooner Ray

            Orange colored glasses must simulate a bad acid trip followed by a false sense of self worth.

    • SoonerGoneEast

      Let me know which game you’re going to make it for and maybe we can get together pre or post game. We’ll get JJ on board too.

  • SoonerfanTU

    Man, I would love to head down to Dallas for the TCU game, then stay down there all week until the RRR. That would be a fun week. Play some golf. Seem some friends. Hmmmm…..

  • Leroy Jenkins
    • Zack

      I guess they didn’t want to disappoint their horned frog readers. No way they go 8-4.

      • Leroy Jenkins

        Totally agree. They propped up TCU big time. SMU (5-7)…not so much.

    • Sooner Ray

      What a coincidence, I predicted the same record for us! What are the odds?

      • EasTex

        I’m thinking 14-0.

        • Sooner Ray

          That’s the only way we can better the 13-0 right?

          • EasTex

            Yep, win both playoff games.

  • j l

    Im going to try and go to the tennessee game, and since im so close to tulsa, ill go to that game as well. Tix should be cheap to the tulsa game.

  • Boomer4life

    The only thing I’m as super apprehensive about is or strength of schedule and the upcoming playoff system this year. We need a championship game to be considered legitimate in the coming years. Wish the TFB’S would do an open post on the playoff scenarios soon.

    • Sooner Ray

      I’m not 100% sure the conference championship game will play that much of a role right now. If you win the Big twelve, you have to be considered by the voters. With any loss, things will be tough getting in. I don’t know if it would matter if you won your conference with or without a championship game. A champion is a champion either way. What will hurt is the strength of the conference as a whole more than the teams strength of schedule. That’s just the way I see it right now, I very well could be completely wrong in my thinking.

      • Gary Robbins

        That’s what worries me the most is strength of schedule. Do you think the people would be influenced by records. Say for instance OU was 12-0, and 4 other teams were 13-0 and had just won their conference championship.

        • Sooner Ray

          I see what you’re saying but has there ever been 5 undefeated teams at the end of the season? Our out of conference schedule is usually decent, it’s helped us in the BCS formula more than once. All we can do for now is win, win, win, and hope the voters consider what we bring to the table nationally.

          • Boomer4life

            I don’t think anyone knows for sure where any of this is headed. We embark on the SS unknown for now.

          • Sooner Ray

            This new human element has everyone concerned. We could estimate where everyone might end up in the BCS formula, but now our fate is in the hands of people who may or may not watch many games and could be influenced by some external source. Unknown for sure.

          • Boomer4life

            We were winning championships before the BCS, we will win championships after the BCS as well. Just wish we all had a better understanding of it all.

          • Sooner Ray

            Right with ya Boomer4.

          • Gary Robbins

            You’re right. I usually look on the positive side. I mean we’re on a 4 game winning streak. We beat 2 very top named teams throughout college football away from our home field(Alabama and Notre Dame). Very few teams can say they beat the previous year’s National Championship Game teams in one year. Like you say just win ‘em all. Another question do you think Bob Stoops has that mentality that “style points” might make a difference?

          • Sooner Ray

            He seems to have some swagger back, and I think he is like us, not sure how this system is going to play out so yeah I think he will try to grab the voters attention. I sure hope he does anyway.

          • Gary Robbins

            One more silly question and I’m off to the sack. Do you or other posters or TFB crew know what or how I could find out the people on this playoff committee for 2014? Thanks in advance.

          • Sooner Ray

            I’ve seen it but can’t give you names off the top of my head. Google it and I’m sure it will come up. It was announced months ago. They aren’t all football people, I remember that much.

            I really only wanted first names and shoe sizes. :-)

          • Boomer4life

            Lmao! I will remember that for next time. Looks like alot homers on the list though, without alot of B12 influence. Just sayin.

          • EasTex

            Sure are a bunch of people on that list with connections to the ‘Fightin’ Frenchies’ from South Bend.

          • Boomer4life

            Looks like notre dame is in.

          • Sooner Ray

            Yep, worried me the first time I heard the list. They all have respectable backgrounds so let’s hope they will make honest decisions.

          • EasTex

            Hope isn’t a strategy.
            Sooners need to win out and spank that a__ hard while doing so.

          • Sooner Ray

            Yup, I’m afraid we’re in a single elimination tournament from now on.

          • EasTex

            Coaches and team leaders will need to keep the players focused, can’t afford any let downs like last year’s losses or a trap game.

          • EasTex

            The four game stretch from mid September to mid October could be a
            grind. Vols at home will be a very emotional and physically demanding
            game, followed by road games to WVU and TCU, followed by the RRS. After
            that grind, they get KSU at home. Not an easy schedule, but if they win
            out I believe it gives the Sooners some serious cred.

          • Gary Robbins

            Thank you very much, one heck of an post. Took me a pot of coffee to read and decipher. Whoever appointed these people had enough smarts to appoint 13(in case of tie). We have some hope; Jeff Long chairman and former OU official), Oliver Luck (West Virginia), and MAYBE Tom Osborne Nebraska) What an hodgepodge of people, it would’ve taken me 2 days to post all that. It would be nice to be a fly on the wall during these meetings.

          • Boomer4life

            NP! It took just a few sec to post with a copy and paste. I wonder how many of these individuals are season ticket holders anywhere. Food for thought.
