Somebody posted earlier today that they were surprised we haven’t played Clemson yet. Which got me thinking about our history against teams currently in Power 5 conferences. Not much of it, honestly, especially in regular season games. So I looked it up
vs Pac-12 – 3-6-1 (1-1-1 in bowl games)
vs. Big 12 (non-SWC schools, and SWC schools since 1992) – 37-14, largely from the days when Okie Lite was a WMS rent-a-win. We’re 21-4 vs. OSU, including games before they joined the Big Eight. Bowl record is 7-3.
vs. Big Ten – 1-6-1 (0-4 in bowls)
vs ACC – 1-6 (1-4 in bowl games)
vs Notre Dame – 0-0, series starts in September
That’s it, folks. Other than Okie Lite, the P5 schools we’ve played the most are Texas post-SWC, and USC (both five times each). We played the Aggies three times in Jerry World before they joined the SEC.
Trivia question without looking it up: Who did we beat in the Big Ten and ACC?
