OU football announces promotions schedule

Duck Dynasty's Jep and Jessica Robertson visit Norman on Saturday

NORMAN — The University of Oklahoma unveiled its promotions schedule for the 2013 football season.  Thanks to tremendous fan feedback and participation, “Stripe the Stadium” returns for a second campaign and will highlight the festivities surrounding OU’s Big 12 Conference opener against West Virginia on Sept. 7.

The season kicks off on Aug. 31 against Louisiana-Monroe, which will be “Band and Spirit Day.” The 2013 home opener is slated to feature a flyover of vintage World War II-era aircraft during the national anthem. OU’s national merit scholars will also be recognized at this contest.

At halftime against Louisiana-Monroe, Coach Patty Gasso’s OU softball squad will be recognized for winning the 2013 NCAA and Big 12 championships, while the men’s gymnastics team will be honored during the game for claiming the MPSF title last season. In addition, Jep and Jessica Robertson from A&E’s hit TV series Duck Dynasty will be in attendance thanks to Hyster/Deep South Equipment and the OU IT Store.

For the Sept. 7 game against West Virginia, fans will once again be encouraged to “Stripe the Stadium” after Sooner fans pulled off the feat last season vs. Notre Dame. Fans who have tickets in even numbered seating sections should wear Crimson and fans in odd numbered seating sections should wear White. The general admission student section should all wear Crimson to this contest. Interested fans can purchase this season’s There’s Only One Oklahoma shirt and hat that come in both crimson and white at the OU Bookstore or online at shop.soonersports.com. In game, the football’s 2012 Big 12 championship will be celebrated. West Virginia’s band will also be visiting Norman for the contest.

The in-state matchup against Tulsa on Sept. 14 will be “Oklahoma Day” and will celebrate the state while featuring special presentations and recognition for individuals and organizations involved in disaster relief efforts following severe weather that impacted the state throughout the spring and summer. Also in attendance will be Tulsa’s band. The rowing team team’s first conference championship will be celebrated, as well.
