OU/Texas Tech Game


Saturday night's game was probably the best game that I've been to at Owen Field EVER!! For me it was more exciting than the OU/Nebraska game in 2000. OU was #5 and Texas Tech was #2...the stakes were high...the stands were loud...and the shoot-out was on!

The crowd was a whopping 85,000+! At 30 minutes prior to game time, the Pride of Oklahoma took the field and the electricity was almost visible. We were packed in there like sardines. Stoops had called us out. He said that OU wasn't the loudest stadium he'd ever been to and that the fans weren't that pivotal in a game. Reverse psychology? Maybe. Whatever it was, it worked!! Everybody was loud, proud, and on their feet. We had Bradford and Harrell in the same stadium...we were sure we were going to see some action and just praying that it was in OU's favor. The first quarter got off to a great start with OU's defense stopping the Raiders and the OU offense making the first touchdown of the game. That's key. It kind of sets the momentum of the game. No one was going anywhere...thirsty, you'll have to wait...need to pee, well that'll wait too. Mike and I hadn't ate since we left Wagoner, like 5 hours prior, but that didn't matter either. With every touchdown the excitement grew...we were screaming and yelling and jumping up and down...high-fives everywhere. They started playing that old song Jump Around by House of Pain (maybe?). Imagine 85,000 fans all "jumping around"...crazy! At half-time, the score was in our favor and the momentum was going our way. There was an interception and the crowd went wild! The second half was no different. The crowd was off-the-hook and Sam and crew were right on target. The defense was shutting Tech down. It was great! I don't think anyone thought that it would end like it did. I myself had felt good about the game, no bad feelings (like I felt when we played Texas), but never did I think we would win so decisively. BOOMER SOONER!!

Here's some more pics from the game:
