The Tulsa Golden Hurricane have updated their future non-conference football schedules, Director of Athletics Ross Parmley announced on Thursday.
The biggest addition is a game at Ohio State in 2016. A date for that game is to be determined, but will likely be either Sept. 10 or Sept. 24.
Tulsa also announced new home-and-home series against New Mexico and Toledo. The Golden Hurricane will travel to New Mexico in 2015 and host the Lobos in 2017. Toledo will visit Tulsa in 2016 with the Hurricane returning the trip in 2017.
Three games were removed from Tulsa’s future schedules, and two of those were the result of conference realignment. North Texas was set for a home-and-home in 2014 and 2015, but the Mean Green will become conference counterparts with the Golden Hurricane in 2013. Also removed was a 2015 home game against ULM.
Other top FBS match-ups that were previously announced include three games against Oklahoma, one home (2014) and two away (2013 & 2015), and a trip to face Oklahoma State. The Oklahoma State contest was moved from 2016 to 2017 due to the addition of Ohio State.
Parmley also told Tulsa World that they are close to signing a home-and-home agreement with Utah for the 2014 and 2015 seasons.

Tulsa had one of the most insane out-of-conference schedules last year that I have EVER seen. Other than North Texas, their lineup was brutal: at Oklahoma, Oklahoma State, and at Boise State.
While I admired the schedule, playing three top-10 teams OOC is a lot to handle. But it is cool to see them playing high-level opponents. I guess they have an advantage being near both OK and OKSU.
