This will be an important series for San Diego State to play a storied college football team in a three-game series. When these games take place, Oklahoma will be realigned to the SEC.
The series will bring more attention to San Diego State and it incentivizes playing difficult non-conference games. Recently, San Diego State played non-conferences series against Arizona and Utah. The Aztecs typically only face Power Five opponents from the Pac-12.
With this announcement, it could open up the door for more Mountain West teams to play against teams from other Power Five conferences. San Diego State might be able to add more series against other Power Five schools.
San Diego State and Oklahoma are 1-1 all-time against each other in two meetings. Oklahoma defeated San Diego State, 38-22, in 1995. The Aztecs took the last meeting against the Sooners in 1996.
