Vols-Oklahoma Football Game Gets Prime Time Slot
KNOXVILLE, Tenn. — Tennessee’s game at Oklahoma on Saturday, Sept. 13, 2014 will kickoff at 8 p.m. ET/7 p.m. CT at Memorial Stadium in Norman, Oklahoma.
The game will air on either ABC, ESPN or ESPN2. The network will be announced at a later date.
This will be the initial regular-season meeting between the teams.
Despite each program’s standing among the nation’s elite, Tennessee and Oklahoma have met only twice, with both games taking place at the Orange Bowl in Miami, Fla. The Vols shut out the Sooners 17-0 in the 1939 Orange Bowl (UT’s second bowl game ever). Then in the 1968 Orange Bowl, Oklahoma posted a 26-24 victory to even the all-time series at 1-1.
Oklahoma and Tennessee will meet again in 2015 when the Sooners travel to Neyland Stadium in Knoxville, Tenn.
