Two of college football’s marquee programs announced a huge home-and-home series today, as Oklahoma and Michigan will meet on the gridiron for the first time since 1975. The teams will play at the Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in 2025 and Michigan Stadium in 2026.

In a press release, Oklahoma Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics and Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione said, “Oklahoma and Michigan represent two of the most iconic names in American sport and we look forward to a series that will be marked by mutual respect and admiration. We also know how truly special these opportunities are for student-athletes, as well as our fans and college football fans everywhere.”
This is a huge matchup between two of the sports’ great programs. We’re just upset that, unless they meet in the postseason, we need to wait 11 years for the two teams to play.
