Nebraska AD Tom Osborne announced on Monday that Nebraska and Oklahoma will be reviving their classic rivalry. Osborne claimed that the Sooners and Huskers have agreed to a home and home series “in principle.”
The series will begin in Norman in 2021, the 50th anniversary of the “Game of the Century.” The game will continue the following year in Lincoln.
Nebraska and Oklahoma haven’t met since Nebraska left the Big 12 for the B1G Conference in 2011. The two schools have had quite a rivalry meeting on 86 occasions. Oklahoma leads the series 45-38-3.
Reviving this long time rivalry will be a feather in the cap of Tom Osborne’s legendary career. Osborne will step down as Nebraska’s Athletic Director on January 1, 2013.

Nebraska switched to the no-huddle offense last year with the idea of dictating tempo and wearing out defenses.
The system also has proved valuable when the 18th-ranked Cornhuskers have had to play from behind.
This past weekend's 28-24 victory at Michigan State marked the third time the Huskers have won after wiping out double-digit deficits in the second half.
The Nebraska Cornhuskers host their only exhibition game on Wednesday night.
