“O-K-U”
Reviewed July 9, 2012

I spend several Saturdays each fall here watching the University of Oklahoma Sooners football team play. The venue also hosts the occasional concert. The food is the typical stadium fare of hot dogs, nachos, and pizza. There are also other offerings that change with the seasons. You can rent seat back supports and binoculars are ok to bring with you. There is no beer or alcohol available in the general stadium seating.

“Oklahoma Memorial Stadium”
Reviewed July 8, 2012

I have seen major college football at Michigan Stadium, Spartan Stadium of Michigan State, Memorial Stadium in Lincoln, the Cotton Bowl, Oklahoma State, Missouri, and Razorback Stadium in Fayetteville, AR. Have attended NFL games in Detroit, Kansas City, St. Louis, and Dallas. There is nothing like being at Oklahoma Memorial Stadium in Norman. The gameday experience is spectacular. All games are sold out but you can get tickets all around the stadium from people not attending. We park, FOR FREE, at Lloyd Noble Center parking lot. There are plenty of parking spaces. You can ride the shuttle bus roundtrip for a buck or two. Or, you can walk just over a mile. We try to get to the parking lot at least 2 hours before gametime as minimum. Any tighter than that and we are in a traffic jam. An hour and half before kickoff, the marching band plays a pregame concert near the North Oval. Then they march through Campus Corner which is an area north of campus with restaurants, bars, and shops. Tailgating is all around the campus. Plenty of vendors are around the stadium selling food. Sooner FanFest is free and north of the stadium. Heisman Park, to the east of the stadium, has statues of the Sooner Heisman Trophy winners.
At the game, plan to be standing from the time the band enters the stadium to the first timeout during the game; then you will be back on your feet again. Expect lots of noise from the firing of rifles by the Rufneks and the crowd. A great video board is over the south endzone and a smaller board is over the north.

“well, home of the sooners”
Reviewed June 2, 2012

as the home of the sooners, it is more of a shrine than a stadium. more hallowed ground, non-sooners are expected to remove their hats when visiting
