2017 Battle Of Bedlam Moved From End Of Season To Nov. 4

The Battle of Bedlam moved from the end of the season to Nov. 4.

Oklahoma's 2017 schedule was finalized on Tuesday with the release of next year's Big 12 Conference slate of games. One major difference with the Sooners schedule this year is the Battle of Bedlam.

Usually played in the last week of the season, 2017's contest will take place in early November, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

This year's Battle of Bedlam took place on December 3, with the Sooners racing out to an 18-point win. Next year, the Big 12 Championship Game, which will be played for the first time since 2010, is scheduled for Dec. 2 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, TX.

Instead of saving its biggest rivalry game for the last week of the season, Oklahoma will travel to play Oklahoma State in its ninth game. The Battle of Bedlam had to be moved to make room for the Big 12 title game, but it's an interesting move placing the game in early November.
