OU makes top 10 college football scoreboards list

In a ranking of the "biggest and most entertaining" scoreboards currently in college football, OU's ranked No. 8 according to ESPN.com blogger Edward Aschoff.



The Sooners rank behind only Texas in the Big 12 scoreboard hierarchy, but the Longhorns are way up the list at No. 1 overall. From the blog:

"It's only natural that 'Big Game Bob' has a big-game board. It's barely shorter in length than Arkansas' monstrosity (166 feet) and is very aesthetically pleasing with its 3,168-by-600 resolution. And soon it will get bigger. A planned $370 million renovation of Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium will make the video board 8,750-square feet, up from 5,146-square feet."

The top 10 scoreboards list is a pretty even distribution between the power conferences. The Southeastern Conference led the way with three selections (No. 2 Texas A&M, No. 3 Arkansas, No. 7 Mississippi State), followed by the Big 12, Pac 12 (No. 4 USC, No. 6 Arizona) and Big Ten (No. 9 Michigan State, No. 10 Ohio State) each with two schools. Miami was the only ACC school to make the list at No. 5.
