For college football fanatics, there is no offseason. The regular season, bowl games and playoffs may be in the rear-view mirror, but football talk is year-round. Yet, summer for the football junkie can drag on—perhaps because the new season is in sight. If this is the way you feel, you won’t have to wait much longer. The 2016 college football campaign kicks off for most teams the first week in September. One highly anticipated matchup will be Houston–Oklahoma. If you support one of these teams, or if you love college football in general, you can use the Houston Cougars Football vs Oklahoma Sooners Football Opening Saturday – Tickets and Guide to get your seat. Tickets to this Sept. 3 contest at Houston’s NRG Stadium start at $38.
This battle is an intriguing matchup between Big 12 heavyweight and perennial national power Oklahoma and Houston, consistently one of the biggest threats outside a Power 5 Conference. Though the two schools are separated by just a six-hour drive, they have only met twice on the gridiron. The last meeting came in 2004 when the eventual top-five-ranked Sooners drilled the Cougars 63-13. The teams also faced one other in the 1981 Sun Bowl in which Oklahoma won 40-14.
A pillar of consistency under head coach Bob Stoops, the Sooners went 11-2 last season, falling to Clemson in the College Football Playoff Semifinal. Since Stoops took over at Oklahoma, his teams have won one national title (2000) and have never won fewer than seven games.
Despite having five coaches since 2000, Houston has also had great success on the field. The team went 13-1 last season, defeating Florida State in the Peach Bowl, and has four 10-plus-win seasons since 2006.
Both the Sooners and Cougars typically boast high-scoring offenses, so expect fireworks when these two intrastate foes get together. Secure your tickets today and be there for all the action.
