Oklahoma's game Saturday at Texas Tech will be televised regionally by ABC (Cox 8), and will be available nationally on ESPN2 via a reverse mirror, the Big 12 Conference announced Sunday.
Saturday's game represents the 20th meeting between the two schools; Oklahoma leads the all-time series 13-6, but lost to Tech last year 41-38 in Norman.
The Sooners have lost their last three games inside Jones AT&T Stadium, dating back to a controversial 2005 loss, when Tech running back Taurean Henderson was awarded a 2-yard touchdown run as time expired.
The score was upheld on review, but later replays showed Henderson's knee might have been down before he broke the plane.
OU was routed 41-13 during its last trip to Lubbock in 2009, when quarterback Landry Jones started as a redshirt freshman.
STOOPS PRAISES OSBORNE
Oklahoma coach Bob Stoops joined the chorus of praise for outgoing Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne last week, calling him an amazing example of leadership.
“What an absolutely amazing career,” Stoops said of Osborne, who was Nebraska's football coach from 1973-97, winning three national championships.
Stoops remembered trying to find new ways to defend Osborne's offense when the OU coach was an assistant at Kansas State in the early 1990s.
“Where our whole defensive structure and success came from and the way we structured it through our formative years at Kansas State was because of defending them,” Stoops said. “We were constantly tinkering, working, figuring out ways to go against them because they were so complex, so good, so multiple.”
KING: K-STATE WAS WAKE-UP CALL
Senior defensive end David King said he would've preferred avoiding a wake-up call like Oklahoma got with last weekend's loss to Kansas State, but that he hopes the Sooners use it to move forward.
“You never want to have a wake-up call,” King said. “You want to be able to play consistently all the way through.
“When someone slaps you or punches you in the face ... They punched us in the face this weekend. Hopefully the guys around here will use that as a wake-up call and rally around it, get this season back on the right track.”
