The bad: this season's nonconference game, which was rained out, won't be rescheduled.

The good: next season, the series gets a retro look, with five regular-season games scheduled between OU and OSU.

Coaches Josh Holliday and Sunny Golloway have agreed to expand the series further, with home-and-home, on-campus nonconference games added to their Big 12 series.

“They're all for it and so are we,” Holliday said. “I think it's great.”

The plan is for one campus game in March, another in April, then the conference clash on the final weekend of the Big 12 schedule.

This season's rained out game, originally scheduled for April 2, was lost when the teams couldn't find an open date that fit both clubs.
