UT football to play Tulsa in '16, '17

Toledo to face Golden Hurricanes on their turf in 2016


The University of Toledo said on Monday that it will play a home-and-home football series with Tulsa in 2016 and 2017. The Rockets will travel to Tulsa on Sept. 17, 2016, with the Golden Hurricane making the trip to Toledo on Sept. 16, 2017.

Tulsa, a member of Conference USA, was 8-5 in 2011, falling to BYU in the Armed Forces Bowl 24-21. The two schools have met twice, with Toledo winning at Tulsa in 1962, and Tulsa prevailing in the Glass Bowl in 1964.

"We are very pleased to add Tulsa to our football schedules for 2016 and 2017," athletic director Mike O'Brien said in a statement. "Tulsa has a highly respected football program. The home game in 2017 adds another high-profile matchup for our fans to watch in the Glass Bowl."
