CBS Sports' Dennis Dodd, who has a good relationship with UTEP athletic director Bob Stull, is tweeting that the Oklahoma football team could open next season at the Sun Bowl, but that "it's not a done deal. Just a possibility."
Both teams are scrambling to fill a season-opening open date and it's getting late for that. If Dodd is tweeting it, it's a good guess he has spoken with Stull (I have a call out to Stull).
That would give UTEP a non-conference schedule of Oklahoma, at Wisconsin, New Mexico State and at Mississippi.
