by John Helsley Published: November 7, 2013

Nov. 8 OU vs. Alabama, 4 p.m., Dallas, Texas

The Sooners get a solid test in their season opener, taking on the Tide in the Tip-Off Showcase at America Airlines Center.

Nov. 19 Memphis at OSU, 7 p.m., Stillwater

An early major matchup, pitting the No. 8 Cowboys against No. 13 Memphis. It should bring the rowdy back to Gallagher-Iba Arena in a hurry.

Nov. 23 OU vs. Michigan State, TBD, Brooklyn, NY

Provided they get past Seton Hall in the opener of the Coaches vs. Cancer Classic at the Barclays Center, the Sooners will surely get a date with the No. 2-ranked Spartans.

Nov. 28 OSU vs. Purdue, 11 a.m., Orlando

Make Thanksgiving plans to get up and catch the Cowboys, who open play in the Old Spice Classic against the Boilermakers. Matchups with Butler and Memphis could follow.

Dec. 6 South Carolina at OSU, 8:30 p.m., Stillwater

This Big 12/SEC Challenge pairing brings the Gamecocks and former K-State coach Frank Martin into Gallagher-Iba Arena.
