Oklahoma’s annual Red River Showdown game against Texas maintains its usual time slot, while the Sooners will have a prime-time audience for its game at UCLA.

Oklahoma and Texas will face each other at 11 a.m. on Oct. 12 at the Cotton Bowl. Counting last year’s two games (regular season, Big 12 championship game), it will be the ninth time in the past 10 meetings that the schools play at 11 a.m. The only different start time came in 2017 (2:30 p.m.).

The Sooners’ game at UCLA will begin at 7 p.m. CT on Sept. 14 inside the Rose Bowl Stadium. It will be the program’s second game in Pasadena in three seasons after facing Georgia in the Rose Bowl to complete the 2017 season.
