NORMAN, Okla. - Oklahoma and Miami, whose original football date in 2009 was lost to a facility conflict at Dolphin Stadium, have rescheduled the game to Oct. 3 and the Sooner program has completed its schedule for next season.
OU's non-conference slate will now include the Sept. 5 opener against BYU in Arlington, Texas, Sept. 12 vs. Idaho State in Norman, Sept. 19 vs. Tulsa in Norman and Oct. 3 at Miami.
"Working in concert with our coach, Bob Stoops, we are pleased with the quality of our non-conference schedule and feel fortunate to adhere to our core scheduling philosophy in preparing our team for a rigorous conference slate," said OU Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics and Athletics Director Joe Castiglione.
"It took a considerable amount of cooperation between Oklahoma and Miami to maintain that game, but the two schools were able to work together to keep it on the schedule," he added. | Printable 2009 OU Football Schedule
