“Oklahoma Twister Concert”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed July 7, 2013

We saw the benefit concert on July 6th. It was a great venue and an awesome show! Especially if you consider it was thrown together in just a month. My only real complaint would be the wait at the food bars was long, though not unexpected. The problem would be they were running out of food. In fact, by late in the afternoon they were out of more stuff than items they actually had. I know a football game is only about three hours and the concert was closer to 7 but they should have been prepared for people who had been there all day being hot, thirsty and hungry. Other than that, great venue.

“Once is enough”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 14, 2013

How can somebody rate an icon of college football "poor." Because the stadium inself is not the best place to see the game. Yes, go for the pagentry, hearing the band, seeing the crowd. Walk around campus and the "corner" shops and enjoy the pre-game show on the lawn. Tour the facilities so you know where all that money goes. Go once, then see the rest of the games in your 50 yard line seat in front of the big screen TV. You won't miss being searched, having someone empty your water bottle in front of you at the gate, sitting on a hard bleacher seat or a cushion which you had to pre-order and pay for, squeezed between two giant fat guys in back of another two giant fat guys with cowboy hats who stand up through the entire game and their kids who spill their cokes and food all over your feet. Unless you are in the super donor seats or the suites, that's what watching the game is like. Cheer for the Sooners...at home.

“Sooner Stadium Rocks”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed May 31, 2013

If you are lucky, a friend will give you a ticket to a game. There is no better place to watch football. But if you are like me and your friends are still donating and still don't have season tickets, then just go and have a look. The new stadium holds almost 100,000. It dominates the south end of the OU Campus. This is truly what college ball is about. Take the tour. Understand how important football has been to OU over the decades.

“Great Venue for College Football”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 8, 2013

We have had season tickets for several years love the entire atmosphere on campus on a game day. The new stadium is state of the art and beautiful on the exterior as well, they did a great job blending the architectural details to match the historic buildings and look of the campus.

“Home of the Sooners”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed February 10, 2013

One of the best venues for collegiate football in the US. Donor privileges are fantastic! Public (if there is such a thing) privileges are better than most stadiums. One must tour the Barry Switzer Center located under the South Stadium to see one of the Premier Atheletic Football Departments in the US. Sooner Football history is displayed in its finest. Coach Merv Johnson gives the best tour of all ..... well, duh, he's been there since the earth has been warm!
