NORMAN, Okla. – OU released its 2014 non-conference football schedule Wednesday.

The University of Tennessee will visit the Sooners for the first time next year Sept. 13.

“We have always strived to feature marquee non-conference opponents on the Oklahoma schedule,” OU vice president and director of athletics Joe Castiglione told SoonerSports.com. “Our longtime philosophy of scheduling high-caliber FBS opponents becomes even more important in 2014 with strength of schedule factoring into the College Football Playoff equation. Without question, the opportunity to schedule a two-game, home-and-home series with a program with the tradition of Tennessee is a win-win for both programs and their passionate fan bases.”
