Meet the Sooners Day

Time: 10:30 a.m. to noon

Place: Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium

Autograph details: Autographs with Oklahoma players and coaches are for children ages 14 and younger. Each child may be accompanied by a maximum of one adult. Each child may bring one item to be signed. The line begins forming at 7 a.m. at Gate 5 and will flow under the Asp Avenue Parking Facility. Sooner Junior Kids Club members will be allowed inside the gates 30 minutes before the general public. Check-in for the kids club begins at 7 a.m. at Gate 7. Fans are allowed to bring in bottled water to the event, but no other outside food or drink is permitted. Bottled water will be on sale inside and outside the stadium as well.

Parking: Free parking will be available on campus lots and in the parking garage on Asp Avenue.

Top five autograph targets: 1. Trevor Knight. The quarterback is always one of the top targets, but after Knight’s performance in the Sugar Bowl and his emergence as the clear leader on the team, there’s no doubt who the most in demand player will be.

2. Bob Stoops. Like the quarterback, the head coach is always in high demand but not since the national title in 2000 has Stoops’ stock been higher. He talked about the SEC a year ago then backed it up with his team’s whipping of Alabama in the Sugar Bowl. He hasn’t been shy about standing up for OU or the Big 12 this summer either.
