Nebraska and Oklahoma in 2021?

The Oklahoma-Nebraska football rivalry, once one of the great traditions in college football, is on the verge of being renewed for two seasons next decade.

LINCOLN, Neb. (AP) — The Oklahoma-Nebraska football rivalry, once one of the great traditions in college football, is on the verge of being renewed for two seasons next decade.

Nebraska athletic director Tom Osborne said Wednesday he has an "agreement in principle" for games with the Sooners in 2021 and 2022. The first game would be played in Norman, Okla., and the second in Lincoln.

The Omaha World-Herald first reported the discussions between Nebraska and Oklahoma.

The Cornhuskers and Sooners played 71 straight seasons as members of the Big Six and Big Eight. The game decided the Big Eight championship 31 times in 36 seasons.

The teams moved to the Big 12 in 1996 and met twice every four years. Nebraska went to the Big Ten in 2011.

Oklahoma leads the series 45-38-3.
