NORMAN, Okla. (AP) Oklahoma coach Lon Kruger will return to the University of Florida as the opposing coach for the first time in 2021.

Oklahoma announced Tuesday the schools have scheduled a home-and-home series the next two seasons. The Sooners expect to host the Gators on Dec. 2, 2020, and will make their first trip to Florida the next season on a date to be determined.

Kruger coached Florida from 1990-96 and led the Gators to the Final Four in 1994.
