The Oklahoma Sooners are a perennial powerhouse college football team. Sooner Football in Oklahoma is considered by many to be THE football team for the state of Oklahoma, though some in Stillwater might disagree. In Oklahoma, OU Football is like a religion, and chants like “BOOMER SOONER” are the hymns and scripture to Sooner fans. In autumn, Saturday afternoons in Norman can be enjoyed on the campus covered in a sea of crimson and cream. Tailgaters line the streets around Gaylord Memorial, and the camaraderie among fans creates an atmosphere unlike any other. From the first blast of a ruffnek shotgun, to the last trip of the Sooner Schooner, the tradition of Oklahoma Sooner football is unrivaled.
The Oklahoma Sooners are one of the most competitive football teams in the NCAA year in and year out. The Sooners have won 7 National championships, and 5 Heisman Trophy winners are Sooners.
