Big 12 football schedule unveiled; Bedlam set for Nov. 27

The 2021 edition of Bedlam is set for Nov. 27 in Stillwater, per Thursday’s Big 12 football schedule release.

Conference play begins Sept. 18; however, due to previously scheduled non-conference games, both OU and OSU football will kick off their first Big 12 matchups on Sept. 25.

The Sooners will host West Virginia on Sept. 25, followed by a trip to Kansas State on Oct. 2.

The Cowboys host the Wildcats to open their conference slate on the 25th, and host Baylor the following week.

On Oct. 9, OU travels to Dallas for its annual Red River Rivalry game with Texas; the Sooners return home the following week to play TCU.

OSU visits the Longhorns in Austin on Oct. 16 following a bye week.

The Sooners’ bye week is set for Nov. 6, sandwiched between a home game with Texas Tech and a road trip to Baylor.

Nov. 27′s Bedlam game will be the regular season finale for both OU and OSU. The Sooners have won the past six Bedlam games, including 2020′s 41-13 thrashing of the Pokes in Norman. Before the COVID-19 pandemic hit in March and the Big 12 forced to readjust its schedule, that game was originally set for October - which would’ve been the rivalry’s first October Bedlam since 2004.
