History repeats itself: OU falls to 1-9 all-time against Notre Dame

(Continued)

NORMAN — From the unique signs fans made, to Kings of Leon being the celebrity guest on stage, the Sooner nation took it all in. But it was GameDay analyst Lee Corso who brought the house down when he picked Oklahoma to win before shooting off an Oklahoma ruffneck gun.

“This is great,” GameDay host Chris Fowler said. “This is by far the best location ever at Oklahoma. Good turnout from the people. I think it all built to a good moment. I think they were all expecting Mr. Corso to pick Oklahoma. But the payoff is fun. It’s nice to be back here. It’ been four years. It was the capital of college football today. We are happy to be here.”

But the main attraction was the game itself. Fans who remembered Oklahoma’s 47-game-win streak coming to an end with the Irish in 1957 made their way to the game. As did young Sooner fans who had no idea the teams had such a long history between them.

Oklahoma City native Chris Turner brought his one-year-old son to his first game just so he could see the Sooners play the Irish at home.

“We love it,” Turner said. “I’m actually bringing my son down here for the first time. GameDay is here. First time in four years. It’s the biggest game in decades probably here in Norman. It’s very special.”

The game’s significance was not lost on Castiglione.

“You have ESPN GameDay here. The college football world is focused on Norman, OK. We are trying to do everything we possibly can to showcase this great university and what actually goes on here that more people need to know about. The fans have really stepped up. As they say, they have come to represent. Trying to show the world how special the University of Oklahoma really is.”
