The Norman Transcript
NORMAN — The first game of OU football season is always full of excitement as fans dressed in crimson and cream flock to Norman. This year will be no different with Sooner Fan Fest, beginning at 2:30 p.m. Saturday before kickoff at 6 p.m.
Located at the Rhyne Hall parking lot off Jenkins Avenue, fans can expect much more than a run-of-the-mill pregame. Fans can take photos with OU mascots Boomer and Sooner as well as meet Jep and Jessica Robertson of the TV series “Duck Dynasty.”
To satisfy that big game day appetite, food and drinks will be available for purchase from vendors including Rib Crib, Ghengis Grill and Kingfisher Cookers.
Additionally, Lower 40, an Oklahoma band with the upcoming single “Call Me Crazy,” will perform on the visitnorman.com sound stage. Other activities include interactive booths provided by GMC, Clearsight and AT&T, to name a few, as well as the chance to win an autographed football by Bob Stoops.
All Fan Fest activities will conclude with a traditional spirited pep rally featuring The Pride of Oklahoma, OU Spirit, pom and mascots. The pep rally will begin at 5 p.m.
