The lesson of Homecoming 2007? There is no such thing as “they have all the momentum” in our house.
And quite a gameday, too—from The Pride appearing live on national television at 9:00 AM for ESPN College Gameday to rehearsal with the Alumni Band, the Homecoming Parade, and a four-quarter great Sooner homecoming game, that day just didn’t stop. Congrats to all members of The Pride (especially since they were back in uniform barely 12 hours later for the Oklahoma Centennial Parade on Sunday afternoon) and of the Alumni Band for a memorable Homecoming 2007. Fight for OKU is a great spirit song, and that West Side Story show is sounding awesome as well.
We’ve removed all of the schedule stuff from the home page to keep things a little clearer, but you can get to all of it anytime through the Homecoming 2007 link that you probably bookmarked. We’ll post any minutes of the business meeting or other documents as they’re made available.
Homecoming 2007 was the middle game of the seven played at Owen Field this season, and this Saturday’s game against Iowa State marks 2/3rds of the 12-game season. Our 6-1 Sooners travel to Ames for the last of the three games against Big 12 North conference opponents (OU has already played Colorado and Missouri), against the 1-6 Cyclones. (Iowa State beat Iowa on September 15 by a score of 15-13, but has lost every other game, including this past weekend to Texas 56-3.) The Pride will send a pep band to the north end of the conference to help cheer on the Sooners, who are ranked #5 in the first BCS rankings of the season, released earlier today.
Kickoff has been set for 11:30 AM CDT on Fox Sports Network regional channels, so check your local listings for the station on your cable or satellite system. After that, the Sooners get a bye week and can rest up for Texas A&M’s visit to Norman on November 3. There’s still a lot of football and marching left this season!
