They’re on their way to sɐxǝʇ

There’s even coverage today in The Oklahoman’s online blogs:

The University of Oklahoma’s Pride of Oklahoma marching band has a big weekend planned in honor of this weekend’s OU-Texas game.

My friend, OU freshman trumpet player Stephanie Gonzales, says the band is playing and rehearsing at 9:30 this morning at Duncan High School and then continuing the long bus ride deep into the heart of Texas.

The band will be in Grapevine’s Colleyville Stadium at 7:30 tonight and will make an appearance afterward for OU alumni.

On Saturday, the band will play a pregame concert at 9:15 a.m. at the Dallas Fair Park Coliseum near the Cotton Bowl. The band then will march into the stadium before the 11 a.m. kickoff.

After the game, the band’s reward for its hard work will be a jaunt through the Texas State Fair before heading back to Norman.

Good luck to Steph and the rest of the band. And good luck to all Oklahomans who will be in Texas this weekend.
