Temple has reached an agreement on a three-game series with one of the nation's most storied college football programs, the University of Oklahoma.
The teams will start a three-game series on Aug. 31, 2024 in Norman, Okla. with the Sooners traveling to Philadelphia for a Sept. 13, 2025 contest. The final game of the series will be at Oklahoma on Sept. 2, 2028.
"We look forward to starting a series with a great program like Oklahoma and hosting the Sooners in Philadelphia," said Temple University
Director of Athletics Dr. Patrick Kraft
. "Our goal is to continue to schedule the best games possible for our program, alums and the college football fans in the city."
Oklahoma, which has won seven National Championships in its history, is coming off an 11-2 season and a trip to the College Football Playoffs. The Sooners and Owls have met twice, with OU posting a 9-6 home victory in the 1940 season and the Owls winning, 14-7, at Temple Stadium in 1942.
Temple returns 39 lettermen, including 12 starters, from its 2015 American Athletic Conference East Division championship team that ended its season with a school-record 10 wins and a spot in the Marmot Boca Raton Bowl.
The Owls open the 2016 season at Lincoln Financial Field against Army on Friday, September 2 at 7:00 p.m.
