Dallas’ new stadium: Odd that a Red River rival will help start era

/> The Sooners will not lose a home game by playing BYU in Arlington. This is a made-for-TV game, not a home-and-home or 2-for-1 agreement.

OU athletic director Joe Castiglione said this game would not have happened in 2009 if it was required to be played in Norman.

Castiglione said the Sooners will still have six home games, which has been his policy the last 10 years.

(A home game yet to be finalized on either Sept. 26 or Oct. 3. Given that OU already has non-conference games against BYU, Miami and Tulsa, look for the 12th game to be against a lousy opponent.)

Sept. 5 will be "opening day" for two Cowboys stadiums.

While the Sooners open the Dallas Cowboys’ new facility, the Oklahoma State Cowboys will christen their completed stadium project against Georgia.
