Nonconference preview: Oklahoma Sooners

By David Ubben

Time to continue our team-by-team look at the Big 12's nonconference schedule.

Next up: Oklahoma.

Louisiana-Monroe, Aug. 31
Tulsa, Sept. 14
at Notre Dame, Sept. 28
Chances of going 3-0: 45 percent

Wrapping up: Give Oklahoma major props. It's got one of the most difficult nonconference schedules in the entire country. It's not a perfect measure of schedule difficulty, but good luck finding another program who's playing three FBS teams who combined to win 31 games last season. That's crazy. Oklahoma may very well be favored in all three games, but that Notre Dame game won't be easy. It looks like mostly a coin flip, but Oklahoma's signed up to host two more teams who could beat the Sooners on a bad night.
