STILLWATER – A seven-game home slate that includes visits from Missouri State, Tulsa, Kansas State, Baylor, Kansas, TCU and Oklahoma highlights the 2021 Oklahoma State football schedule, announced today by the Big 12 Conference. “America’s Greatest Homecoming” also returns when OSU hosts Kansas on Oct. 30.

The Cowboys open against Missouri State on Sept. 4 at Boone Pickens Stadium before welcoming in-state foe Tulsa to Stillwater the following week on Sept. 11. The TU matchup marks the third straight year the teams have faced each other.

The non-conference schedule concludes with OSU’s first-ever visit to the state of Idaho to face Boise State on Sept. 18. It will be the second time the Cowboys and Broncos have met on the gridiron, with OSU winning the first meeting, 44-21, at Boone Pickens Stadium in 2018.

Oklahoma State opens Big 12 play with back-to-back home games, facing Kansas State Sept. 25 and Baylor Oct. 2.

An open date is scheduled for Oct. 9, followed by a two-game road stretch the starts against Texas in Austin on Oct. 16 and concludes with an Oct. 23 game against Iowa State in Ames.

After three straight weekends without a game in Boone Pickens Stadium, the Cowboys return to Stillwater for a Homecoming matchup against the Kansas Jayhawks on Oct. 30. It marks the 100th edition of “America’s Greatest Homecoming” and the return of one of college football’s best traditions after pausing the annual event in 2020 due to COVID-19 protocols.

The OSU Alumni Association plans to host the centennial edition of Homecoming the week of Oct. 24-30, culminating with the game. Details are available at

The rest of the season features alternating road and home games, with a road trip to face West Virginia on Nov. 6, a visit from TCU on Nov. 13, a trip to Texas Tech on Nov. 20 and a home regular season finale against Oklahoma on Nov. 27. It marks the return of Bedlam to the last regular season game of the year after it was moved from the traditional date in 2020.

The top two finishers in the Big 12 regular season standings will compete for the conference title in the Big 12 Championship Game, scheduled for Dec. 4 at AT&T Stadium in Arlington, Texas.
