Oklahoma-Nebraska rivalry, history explained

Oklahoma, Nebraska rivalry explained

The Sooners and the Cornhuskers first met in 1912 in Lincoln with a 13-9 victory in favor of the home team. They met again for a tie in 1919 then played regularly from 1921 through 2010.

The Huskers controlled the early years of the rivalry. In the first 22 meetings, Nebraska won 16 and picked up three ties.

The series has featured the No. 1 team in the land 13 times. In 1971, the “Game of the Century” featured No. 1 Nebraska pulling off a 35-31 victory over No. 2 Oklahoma. The next 20 years would deliver incredible matchups. in 1978, the No. 4 Cornhuskers took down No. 1 Oklahoma. In 1979 they met in the Orange Bowl with No. 4 OU getting the win. In 1984 and1987, the Sooners upset the No. 1 Huskers.

While the series remained strong coming into this century, divisions in the Big 12 made meetings more rare. Twice, Oklahoma had to best Nebraska in the Big-12 Title Game.

Nebraska’s move to the Big Ten in 2011 ended the regular conference rivalry. However, the two programs came together to schedule an out-of-conference series beginning in 2021, with games in 2022, 2029 and 2030.
