Southwest Airlines is adding a special flight for fans watching the Tennessee vs. Attend Oklahoma

Southwest Airlines had college football fans in mind when it added additional service and launched new flight routes in September and October. They’re all centered around six big games leading up to the highly anticipated 2024 college football season.

The realignment of the conferences has changed the geography of college football, as some fans will now have the opportunity to travel to new destinations for high-stakes conference matchups for the first time. Featured by Tennessee visiting Oklahoma in Week 4 during the Sooners’ SEC debut as new members of the conference.

With that in mind, Southwest has added additional service for Volunteers fans on flights between Nashville and Oklahoma City during game weekend. Service added for flights on September 20 and 22 between Saturday’s game on September 21 in Norman, Oklahoma.

Southwest has also added service to flights between New Orleans and Las Vegas LSUWeek 1 game against USC and flights between Atlanta and Austin for Georgia‘s match against Texas in October. In addition, new flights will be added between Austin and Detroit, Birmingham and Milwaukee, and Columbus and Portland for games between Texas and Michigan, Alabama And WisconsinAnd State of Ohio vs Oregon.

Tennessee and Oklahoma’s Week 4 game is historic and marks the first conference game involving the SEC’s newest members, with Texas also joining the Sooners in the conference this upcoming season.

Oklahoma head coach Brent Venables enters his third season at the helm of the Sooners and his first season as coach in the SEC. Fresh off improving the team’s record to 10-3 last season. And ahead of his debut season in the conference many consider the most competitive in college football, he’s not taking things lightly.

“I recognize that the challenge is real, but it’s always about winning and being successful and having longevity, consistency, stability and continuity, those are all difficult things to maintain. So this is a competition that is very unforgiving,” Venables said during the SEC Spring Meetings.

Jackson Arnold will be under center for the Sooners, a second-year quarterback who got his first career start in Oklahoma’s bowl game last season. The exact same scenario that Tennessee finds itself in Nico Jamaleava he took over the reins of the offense prior to his second year with the program.

“He is unique in his frame and skill set,” the Tennessee head coach said Jos Heupel said. “His ability to move, extend, play off the scheme, from different arm angles. His experience in the bowl game. He played extremely well, but I think a lot of it was his urgency since he got back in the building in January. He continued to grow, changing his frame and adding muscle. Had a great spring.”

Heupel also notably played quarterback for the Sooners during his college playing days. We’re adding another fascinating storyline to an exciting game where Tennessee fans can make their presence felt even more clearly this September thanks to Southwest.
