The Oklahoma State-Oklahoma rivalry football series will come to an end when the Sooners leave for the SEC in 2025.

The series began in 1904 and the two schools have met 116 times. However, all the hype and pomp will come to an end in a few years. Action Network first reported on the likely ending of the series.

On Tuesday, the discussion began about which side really had a say in the series coming to an end.

Oklahoma State coach Mike Gundy blamed Oklahoma for ending the rivalry, citing his decision to join Texas and move to the SEC in a couple of years.

“Bedlam is history, we all know that. We know that because the OU chose to follow Texas and the money to the SEC. That’s fine. So now, we’re having what I think are childish discussions, in my opinion, about something that has been done. And I’d like to make this the last statement I have because I have no hard feelings,” Gundy said, via ESPN.

“But what’s going on now is almost a situation with a husband and a wife, or a girlfriend and a boyfriend when you know you’re dead wrong, and you try to turn the situation around and make them think they’re wrong, when the Oklahoma State doesn’t have nothing to do with this.”

Oklahoma State athletic director Chad Weiberg said the action network there are no opportunities for the two teams to play each other.

“We don’t have openings to play against them,” he said. “We’re full. Unless there are significant commitments to make the game happen, it can’t happen.”

Joe Castiglione, Oklahoma’s athletic director, blamed Oklahoma State.

“Oklahoma State has shown no interest in scheduling future football games, so we’re moving on,” he said.
