Here's a photo of Sooner fans heading south on Interstate 35 to the 2007 Big 12 Championship football game against Missouri. The game was played in San Antonio, and Oklahoma was the victor. On that day there were hundreds of Sooner fans headed south.
Every fall, tens of thousands flock to Norman for the five or six home football games at Owen Field. Always a football powerhouse, the Oklahoma Sooners have enjoyed a tradition for excellence unmatched by most Division I schools in the country. Looking for an excuse to throw an orange? Come to a game versus Kansas State or Nebraska. Looking for an excuse to cheer out excess energy? Come to the season opener against a non-conference stand-in. Looking for a place to wet your whistle after the game (or worse, during halftime)? Go to O'Connells.
