First kickoff times announced

Plan on ending your OU-Texas Friday night party a little bit earlier this year:

OU-Texas will be at noon

Rise and shine, Red River rivals.

Oklahoma’s football game Oct. 8 against Texas will kick off at noon this fall and be shown on ABC.

The game time was announced Thursday, along with the time for OU’s season-opener against TCU.

The TCU game will kick off at 11 a.m. Sept. 3 in Norman and also will be shown on ABC.

The 11AM kickoff for the home opener most likely means 6AM rehearsals for the new 2005 Pride of Oklahoma on game day, which is the first day of Labor Day weekend. Joy! (You can find information on auditions for the 2005 Pride here.)
