OU's 9:30 p.m. kickoff Saturday for its season-opener at UTEP helped produce the Sooners' lowest rating in at least five years — 12.6 on Fox Sports Oklahoma. The telecast peaked at 14.1 at 12:30 a.m. The previous low in that time period had been 14.4, both for an Iowa State game in 2010 and a Texas A&M game in 2009. Both telecasts also were on FSOK. A rating was not available for the Savannah State at OSU telecast on Fox College Sports.
