Oklahoma Puts a Hold on Preseason Camp

NCAA Football: Oklahoma at Baylor

It appears that Oklahoma has put a pause on fall practice for a week after a schedule change. Oklahoma head coach Lincoln Riley announced on Saturday night that training camp for his team (that started July 31st) will be put to a halt due to their opener against Missouri State being pushed back to September.

“We decided it’s best to give our players some time off,” Riley said in a statement. “We were able to start camp before the vast majority of teams because our Aug. 29 season-opening game date was the earliest in the country. With that first game pushed back a week or two, it only makes sense to spread out our practices and give our guys some time away. They’ve done a great job so far.”


Keep in mind, the Missouri Valley Football Conference made an announcement of pushing their conference games to the spring but will allow members to schedule non-conference games in the fall if they want to. Also, Oklahoma is still testing for COVID-19 a couple times a week and during this break in fall camp, players will be allowed to go home before coming back Friday.
