Spring game moved to 1:30 p.m. kickoff

Kickoff time for the OU spring game has been moved to 1:30 p.m., 30 minutes earlier than previously scheduled. Stadium gates will open at 12:00 p.m. Any further updates to today’s schedule will be made available to fans via

The inaugural Big Boomer BBQ will continue as planned, beginning at 10:30 a.m. immediately north of Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium. At that time, live music from Banana Seat, kids’ amusement rides and the OU Spring Merchandise Sale will all commence.

The Autograph Zone of the Big Boomer BBQ has been removed from Saturday’s itinerary, but a free, 45-minute post-game autograph session with OU football players currently remains on the schedule. The autograph session will be available only to those fans who attend the game. No post-game-only access will be permitted.

Beginning at noon, fans may enter the stadium at Gates 1, 5, 7 and 12. The Sooner Kids Club check-in is at Gate 5. Seating will be restricted to the lower deck, and restrooms and concession stands will be open on the north and west concourses only. ADA seating is available in the south end zone section. Due to previously-scheduled stadium maintenance, there will be no seating in the east stands.

All seating is general admission.

The game will be carried live on the radio (KOKC-AM 1520) but will not be televised. Toby Rowland will be calling Saturday’s action and will be joined by Merv Johnson, who returns in his analyst role, and Chris Plank who reports from the sidelines.

The spring Game and all surrounding events are subject to change in the event of inclement weather.
