NORMAN — Oklahoma doesn't play again until Sept. 22 and only has one more game in September.

The scheduling oddity was due to TCU joining the Big 12 Conference. The Sooners originally were scheduled to face the Horned Frogs on Saturday, but the game was moved Dec. 1 once it became a league game.

OU coach Bob Stoops doesn't have an issue with having a bye week so early in the season.

"With all the new parts we have from last year to this year, we're kinda looking forward to it," he said. "Kansas State is a difficult preparation and this gives us some extra time to really study and work on them. We'll use all the time to prepare for Kansas State."

The Sooners will practice today through Thursday. Stoops said the players will get Friday-Sunday off this week.
