MBB: Student Season Tickets Sold Out

The University of Oklahoma Athletics Department announced Wednesday that student season tickets are sold out for the 2016-17 OU men’s basketball season. The sellout occurred less than 24 hours after tickets went on sale – the fastest sale of student tickets in the Lon Kruger era.

Students who were unable to purchase season tickets will still have opportunities to attend games in the upcoming season. All non-conference games with the exception of Memphis (Dec. 17) and Florida (Jan. 28) will have free entry with a valid OU student ID. All other home games will offer $5 student tickets at the door based on availability.

“We are very grateful for our students selling out their section so quickly,” OU Vice President for Intercollegiate Athletics Programs and Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione said. “The special atmosphere the students have helped create in the Lloyd Noble Center the past few years has been incredible and we look forward to it continuing this season. I encourage all Sooner fans to continue the support our students have shown and pack the Lloyd Noble Center starting in November.”

Senior Offensive Lineman Erick Wren Rewarded With Scholarship

It was a good Monday for Erick Wren. A really good Monday.

The OU senior offensive lineman got the surprise he had always dreamed of when head coach Bob Stoops announced that he had been put on scholarship in front of all of his teammates during an afternoon pre-practice meeting.

"It was a great feeling. I didn't expect it to come like that," Wren said. "It came as a surprise and it feels good when all your hard work pays off. At that moment it paid off, but we still have to work for other things. That's just one of many goals accomplished. That's a major one, but I still have more."

Ohio State Blows Out Oklahoma 45-24

No. 3 Ohio State pushed No. 14 Oklahoma around all night in an easy 45-24 win, rushing 48 times for 291 yards as the Sooners struggled to contain the Buckeyes’ electric ball carriers.

The Sooners (1-2) had been stiff against the run in their first two games this season, but they had no answers for Ohio State (3-0). Quarterback J.T. Barrett joined running backs Mike Weber and Curtis Samuel in running through, around and over OU’s defense.

“They got us out of a lot of our stuff, made it a physical game, and we didn’t react well to it,” defensive coordinator Mike Stoops said.

QB Austin Kendall Thinks Baker Mayfield Will 'Light Up' Ohio State's Defense


Freshman quarterback Austin Kendall was interviewed on Sooner Sports TV and had some quote board material at the ready for the Ohio State Buckeyes.

When asked what his impressions were of Ohio State's defense, Kendall didn't seem too impressed.

"I've seen that they have a really basic defense," he said. "I think we can go out there, I mean Baker, and he'll light them up and I'm really looking forward to it if my number is called and I think I can do the same." (The Oklahoman)

Urban Meyer: Crowd Noise Is A Concern Against Oklahoma

Ohio State coach Urban Meyer said he anticipated a raucous environment Saturday in Norman.

“It's a concern,” Meyer said of the noise. “Wednesday and Thursday we'll pump crowd noise in like we normally do.

“This will probably be one of the loudest stadiums in the country.”

That hasn't typically been the reputation of Gaylord Family — Oklahoma Memorial Stadium and Bob Stoops on Monday again expressed regret for his 2008 call-out of Sooners fans ahead of a home game against Texas Tech.
