MORGANTOWN, W.Va. — The Sept. 7 West Virginia-Oklahoma showdown in Norman, Okla., will be a prime-time kickoff televised by Fox.
The Week 2 game will serve as the Big 12 opener for both schools and an intriguing followup to last season’s 50-49 classic won buy the Sooners in Morgantown.
The kickoff times for WVU’s first three games were released by the conference on Tuesday.
The Mountaineers’ season opener on Aug. 31 against William & Mary at Milan Puskar Stadium will kick off at noon Eastern, and will be televised on Fox Sports 1, which is launching in mid-August as the rebranded Speed Channel.
The Oklahoma game will kickoff at 7 p.m. Eastern.
The Georgia State game on Sept. 14 in Morgantown will kick off at noon Eastern and will be televised locally. The television outlet will be announced at a later time as WVU configures its third-tier rights package.
Kickoff times for the remaining contests will be announced on either a 12-day or six-day window prior to the game.
