Let's take a look at the schedules for both Texas and Oklahoma in 2018.

The 2017 season isn't quite over, and Oklahoma, one of the four College Football Playoff participants, still has a chance to win a national title. But it's never too early to look ahead to next year. Let's compare what the Sooners will be facing in 2018 - along with their rival, Texas.

Per usual, both teams will play the other nine Big 12 schools. But Oklahoma will take on Florida Atlantic, UCLA and Army in non-con. Texas gets Maryland, Tulsa and USC.

Let's take a look at each team's schedule, week-by-week.
