Oklahoma and UCLA schedule home-and-home series
Oklahoma and UCLA announced a home-and-home series that will take place in 2018 and 2019.
On Wednesday Oklahoma and UCLA announced a home-and-home series that will take place in 2018 and 2019. The first game will be played in Norman on September 8, 2018 with the Sooners making the return trip to Pasadena on September 14, 2019.
“We're delighted to again add UCLA's tradition-rich program to our schedule,” said Oklahoma athletic director Joe Castiglione in a release. “Together, we can showcase two great schools in the kind of intersectional matchup that is so good for college sports. And now our longstanding philosophy of scheduling marquee non-conference opponents becomes even more important with the College Football Playoff beginning in 2014.
“We will continue to schedule games of this kind because they benefit our program competitively and because we believe this approach is best for the sport and our tremendous fan base.”
Oklahoma and UCLA have met four times before, with the Sooners holding a 3-1 lead in the series. The last meeting came in 2005 with UCLA beating Oklahoma 41-24 in Pasadena.
Oklahoma also announced that its scheduled series with LSU that was originally scheduled to take place in 2018 and 2019 is currently in the process of being rescheduled.
