Houston and Oklahoma will meet in 2016

Per ESPN's Brett McMurphy on Tuesday, the Houston Cougars and the Oklahoma Sooners will open the 2016 football season at NRG Stadium in Houston, Texas.
The Houston-Oklahoma matchup would be the fourth annual AdvoCare Texas Kickoff. LSU and Wisconsin play this season and Texas A&M and Arizona State are scheduled to meet in 2015.
The first AdvoCare Texas Kickoff featured Oklahoma State against Mississippi State last season.
Houston is currently slated to open the 2016 season at Texas State, but they could move that game to a later date or postpone it. The Cougars are also scheduled to host Louisville at TDECU Stadium on Nov. 19.
Oklahoma also has a season-opener on the books — ULM at home on Sept. 3. Ohio State is also scheduled to visit Norman on Sept. 17.
The Sooners and Cougars have met twice previously, and neither contest was close. OU trounced UH 40-14 in the 1981 Sun Bowl in El Paso, TX and 63-13 in 2004 in Norman.
