Three years in a row that the Golden Eagles have played Wichita State.  Would be nice to see some new teams on the schedule.

Good point.....Wichita State can't make the trip down 35 to Tulsa at least once every 3 years?.....then again.....there may be more Shocker fans at Mabee Center than Golden Eagle fans if they play us at home.....still, it's kind of insulting.....Coach Marshall likes to run up his non conference win totals at home....guessing ORU receives about $100K for each visit and we don't have to pay for hotel space.....😬

Wichita State is a great opponent for us. Easy travel, easy money, big name, maybe a shot at an upset every now and then. I just wish it was on a Saturday so I could make the trip up for the game. 

What is the over/under for how many home D1 games we get this year?

I'll bite:  for non-conference, it's 1.

...and I'm taking the under.

We have Tulsa coming in from 7 miles away ( more like a neutral game) and does anyone know if they are still playing the WAC vs Summit League Challenge? It may have ended last year. If not then ORU is due for a home game since they went to Chicago last year. It would also help if they could play another Southland team at home (last year Houston Baptist).

Yeah good point. They also had 4 or 5 players transfer this year. So maybe they are rebuilding and the Eagles pull off an upset!

First time the Pokes will visit Mabee Center since 1997.  Glad to see it!

What in the world? A 1 for 1? Why would OSU do that? Surely that’s not some love from Scott? 
Obviously this is an incredible deal for ORU. Not sure how we pulled it off.

I can only assume that schools are addressing concerns from a budgetary standpoint.  OSU avoids a big-check payout to a visiting school and travels by bus with no lodging expenses to a location which many/most of their fans will find convenient.  I'm quite sure that there will be more black and orange in the Mabee Center than navy and gold, but it will be a big win for all fans in Tulsa (ORU and OSU).

Just a couple of valid reasons why this is great news. 

This match-up is fantastic for even TU fans:  they can come out to the Mabee Center and boo BOTH teams. 🤣

Honestly....it's great to see OSU do a home and home deal with us.....very generous of the Pokes and hopefully we will see more of this with schools trying to cut costs....one would think with OU, Arkansas, Wichita State and North Texas all within a couple hours driving distance it would make sense to sign these types of deals where their fans can make a short trip to Tulsa and enjoy a game at Mabee Center.....😎

Missouri State Bears are a staple on the schedule every year which is nice....always a competitive match up....let's get schools like Central Arkansas, Arkansas State and some of the Texas mid majors to sign up for home and homes......:shield-logo:

Still shocked about the OSU deal. Surely we would have happily agreed to a 2 for 1. I can't figure why they would settle for a 1 for 1 beyond extreme generosity. Can't figure where that generosity comes from either. 

Good to see Mo State on the schedule again.

This TU fan will be there!  Great non conference game at Mabee and believe it or not, I will be cheering for the Navy and Gold.

Gotta think that Mike Carter's connections to his alma mater's athletic department had something to do with it.

Do you guys think that basketball season will be a go next year?  College football is going to start late and just wonder if that will effect basketball.  Maybe teams only schedule a few non conference games and the focus is more on the conference season.  Only play say 20 instead of 30 games because of this whole virus thing.  Any thoughts?

I don't think the PAC-12 will play football (not that anyone would be able to tell otherwise).
