OU-Nebraska Renew Rivalry in Football
OU reaches a deal to play a home-and-home football series with the University of Nebraska. The University of Oklahoma Athletics Department said Thursday the first game will be in Norman on Sept. 18, 2021. The Sooners will go to Lincoln Sept. 17, 2022. The last time OU and Nebraska played was in the 2010 Big 12 Championship Game when the Sooners won 23-20. Nebraska was last in Norman Nov. 1, 2008, when OU won 62-28.
“The ability to rekindle a fabled series between two tradition-rich programs and two extremely loyal and passionate fan bases was very important to both universities," said OU vice president and director of athletics Joe Castiglione. "Playing marquee non-conference opponents remains an integral part of our scheduling philosophy. Games like Oklahoma-Nebraska embody all the qualities that make regular season Saturdays in college football matter to so many."
One of the most memorable games between the historic teams was the 1971 "Game of the Century" when No. 2 Oklahoma faced off against No. 1 Nebraska in Norman. The Cornhuskers won that game 35-31. The game in 2021 will commemorate the 50th anniversary of the classic match.
OU leads the all-time series 45-38-3.

Lanes reopening near Shawnee but delays expected
May 20, 2013 12:28 GMT
SHAWNEE, Okla. (AP) -- Officials say drivers should expect delays on Interstate 40 in Shawnee as crews continue to clean up storm debris.
Westbound Interstate 40 was closed Sunday night at U.S. 177 after storms ripped through the area. U.S. 177 was also shut down because of vehicle accidents caused by the severe weather.
The Oklahoma Department of Transportation says northbound U.S. 177 at I-40 was reopened as of 7 a.m. Monday. Westbound traffic on I-40 is narrowed to one lane, but all lanes are expected to reopen later Monday morning.
Officials say drivers should expect congestion in the area or pick an alternate route.
