The two teams previously played a home-and-home series, with Bob Stoops’ Oklahoma side winning both games.
“The Tennessee series renews our commitment to marquee non-conference games,” University of Oklahoma Athletics Director Joe Castiglione said in a statement. “The games in 2014 and ’15 demonstrated a tremendous respect between two storied programs, as well as between a pair of passionate fan bases, and so for the players, coaches and fans, we’re excited to renew this high-profile series.
“In signing the contract for this new series, we worked together to allow for other conflicts. That’s the reason we are not playing in back-to-back seasons.”
Oklahoma’s future non-conference schedule is loaded, with games against powerhouse programs like Ohio State, Michigan, UCLA and LSU.
