UF and Oklahoma have scheduled a home-and-home men’s basketball series for the 2020-2021 and 2021-2022 seasons.

OU will host Florida on Dec. 2 in Norman, Oklahoma next season, while the Gators will host the Sooners for their first ever trip to the O’Connell Center in 2021.

However, this will not be Oklahoma head coach Lon Kruger’s first trip to Gainesville, as he was the head coach at Florida from 1990-1996. While at UF, Kruger led the Gators to a Final Four in 1994 and posted an overall record of 104-80.

Last season, neither team received votes in the final AP top-25 poll. The Sooners and the Gators both finished with a 19-12 overall record before the rest of the season was cancelled mid March. Oklahoma posted a 9-9 conference record, while the Gators fared mildly better in conference play with an 11-7 record.

OU and UF basketball have only met three times, with Florida holding the winning record of 2-1, but Oklahoma having won the most recent matchup 65-60.
