The 2020 regular season finale for the Texas Longhorns against the Oklahoma State Cowboys in Stillwater could have Big 12 title implications and will now face a little bit less competition for time slots and viewers, as the conference announced on Thursday that the game will now take place on Friday, Nov. 27 instead of Saturday, Nov. 28.
The conference will announce television and game time information at a later date.
Texas has replaced most of its coaching staff under head coach Tom Herman, but quarterback Sam Ehlinger will return for his senior season, along with 17 other starters, so the expectations for the Longhorns will be high once again. And Oklahoma State gets star running back Chuba Hubbard and star receiver Tylan Wallace back to pair with quarterback Spencer Sanders and a defense that returns 10 starters.
Herman is 2-1 coaching on Fridays and Texas has a 25-9 advantage all-time against Oklahoma State, including a 36-30 victory in Austin last year. However, the Longhorns haven’t won in Stillwater since a 28-7 win in 2014 and haven’t played Oklahoma State to close out the regular season before.
