ESPN doesn't like the 2023 schedule for the Oklahoma Sooners


The 2023 schedule for the Oklahoma Sooners has some pros and cons. It's a manageable schedule, but it isn't without some potential pitfalls.

Given the new 14-team alignment in the Big 12, how the schedule broke down was going to leave every team wanting a little bit more or feeling like they got the short end of the stick. No Kansas State leaves a bit to be desired.

Breaking down the schedule, ESPN's Dave Wilson is looking forward to Oklahoma and Texas again in the Cotton Bowl. He's also intrigued by the Sooners' road trip to Cincinnati, which is the Bearcats' first game in the Big 12 conference. But that away game and the Sooners' final road trip of the season to Provo gives Oklahoma a couple of tough tests against the conference's newest members.

Oklahoma plays three games against teams new to the Big 12. They're also playing the two teams that were added in the last round of realignment; West Virginia and TCU. No Wildcats, Baylor, or Texas Tech. Teams they've had a long-standing relationship with.

Still, it's a manageable schedule that has the opportunity to help the Sooners get back into conference title and College Football Playoff contention as early as next season.
