The Oklahoma State Cowboys have added the UT Martin Skyhawks to their 2025 football schedule, FBSchedules.com has learned.

A copy of the football game contract with the University of Tennessee at Martin was obtained from Oklahoma State University via a public records request.

Oklahoma State will host UT Martin at Boone Pickens Stadium in Stillwater, Okla., on Saturday, Aug. 30, 2025. The Cowboys will pay the Skyhawks a $450,000 guarantee for playing the game, according to the copy of the contract.

Oklahoma State and UT Martin have never met on the gridiron.

UT Martin is a member of the Ohio Valley Conference (OVC) in the Football Championship Subdivision (FCS). The Skyhawks are 4-2 overall and 3-0 in OVC action so far this season.

With the addition of UT Martin, Oklahoma State now has all three non-conference opponents set for their schedule in 2025. Other opponents for the Cowboys that season include the Oregon Ducks on the road on Sept. 6 and the Tulsa Golden Hurricane at home on Sept. 20.

Oklahoma State is the second scheduled non-conference opponent for UT Martin for the 2025 season. The Skyhawks are also slated to host the Southern Illinois Salukis on a date to be determined.
