With Lane Kiffin’s first time around, the Owls didn’t play a single away game in Florida. That led to nearly 6,500 miles worth of flights to everywhere from Madison, Wisconsin to Norfolk, Virginia.

This year, the Owls will travel to the University of Central Florida and Florida International, knocking down some of their travel time.

Check out where they will be charting frequent flier miles with our map:

Sept. 1:

University of Oklahoma
Norman, Oklahoma
1,459 miles away
*Furthest opponent this season*

Sept. 21:

University of Central Florida
Orlando, Florida
191 miles away

Sept. 29

Middle Tennessee State University

840 miles away

Oct. 20

Nov. 3

Florida International University
Miami, Florida
56 miles away
*Closest opponent this season*

Nov. 17
