NORMAN — Oklahoma’s bye weeks for next season are a little more spread out than they were this year.

The Big 12 Conference announced its 2013 schedule Tuesday, and the Sooners are off Sept. 21, Nov. 2 and Nov. 30.

This season, Oklahoma was out of off weeks after its Sept. 22 home loss to Kansas State, which was just the third game of the season.

OU opens its 2013 slate Aug. 31 at home vs. Louisiana-Monroe, then plays its first Big 12 game a week later on Sept. 7, a home contest against West Virginia.

The Sooners travel to Notre Dame on Sept. 28, but have a bye the week before.

The Red River Rivalry clash with Texas is scheduled for Oct. 12, sandwiched between a home game against TCU and a road game against Kansas.

Both Oklahoma and Oklahoma State have byes the week before Bedlam 2013, which is slated for Dec. 7 — the last day of the regular season.
