Oklahoma Sooners

Oklahoma Sooners Basketball: 2019-20 Schedule Analysis

NCAA Basketball: Oklahoma at Southern California

Leading up to Big 12 media days in Kansas City Heartland College Sports will analyze each of the Big 12 men’s basketball schedules. Today it’s the Oklahoma Sooners. 

Season opener: The Sooners head to Sioux Falls, S.D., to face Minnesota in a neutral site game. 

Tournaments: OU faces Oregon State in the Phil Knight Classic in Portland, Ore., on Nov. 12. The Sooners will also participate in the Hall of Fame Classic in Kansas City Nov. 25-26, with a game set against Stanford and the potential for a game against either Butler or Missouri. 

The Big 12/Big East Game: The Sooners drew a road game against Creighton on Dec. 17.

The Big 12/SEC Game: Mississippi State will face OU in Norman on Jan. 25. 

The Big Non-Con: UCF doesn’t have the big man inside (Tacko Fall), but the Knights are coming off a 24-9 season that led to an NCAA berth. So UCF could certainly push OU. 

Mid-Major Danger: The road trip to North Texas is worth sweating over. It’s a mid-week game in December against a team that won 21 games last year. It also comes two days before OU goes to Wichita State. Can the Eagles catch the Sooners looking ahead to a traditionally stronger opponent? 

Big 12 Opener: The Sooners host Kansas State on Jan. 4. 

The ‘Big’ Big 12 stretch: If I’m OU, I’m not digging road games against Texas Tech and Kansas sandwiched around home games with West Virginia and Iowa State. There are some serious pitfalls there.
