Oklahoma’s season opener against Houston has been moved to Sunday, Sept. 1. The game will be on ESPN. A kickoff time has yet to be announced .
This will be the first Sunday game the Sooners have ever hosted.
“Of course, this isn’t something we would ever do on a Sunday night at any other point in the regular season,” OU athletic director Joe Castiglione told The Oklahoman. “This is unique because of the Labor Day weekend.”
The NFL season doesn’t begin until after Labor Day.
The Cougars knocked off OU the last time the two programs met, in the 2016 opener in Houston.
