Future OU Football Schedules

DISCLAIMER: All future schedules are unofficial until announced by the University of Oklahoma and therefore are subject to change. This information is gathered from conference, university, or local/national news media sources. The accuracy and availability of this information is dependent solely on those sources. I will make every effort to note when a game or series is not official -- short of publishing an unconfirmed rumor -- and, if possible, provide a link or reproduction of the source of that information (older links may not work).
