Oklahoma’s season opener is reportedly being moved.
According to multiple reports, the Sooners’ Week 1 game at Tulane is being moved back to Oklahoma due to Hurricane Ida.
Hurricane Ida made landfall in Louisiana this weekend. The hurricane, which has since weakened to a tropical storm, is causing significant damage across the state.
Oklahoma was set to play Tulane on Saturday at noon E.T. However, the game will now be taking place in Norman, Okla.
Carey Murdock first reported the news.
“Can confirm that the OU/Tulane game is moving to Norman this weekend. Full announcement expected from OU around noon with more details about gameday procedures, tickets, etc,” he reports.
