(10/31) OU Football Articles and Notes

Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Parking police: You've been warned...: Starting Saturday, Norman police officers will start issuing tickets to people who violate parking restrictions near the University of Oklahoma on game days. Fans are no longer allowed to park on both sides of campus-area residential streets, police said, because it was difficult for emergency vehicles to pass. The change took effect in August, and signs indicate where drivers may and may not park. (The Oklahoman)

Remembering Oct. 28, 2000: One of the most memorable dates in Oklahoma football history is Oct. 28, 2000, the day the Sooners returned to No. 1 with a 31-14 victory over previously-top ranked Nebraska. What was current OU quarterback Sam Bradford doing at the time? "I was playing a hockey game that day," he said, "so I wasn't able to come to the game. But I remember the first thing after the game was over, I skated over to the glass and asked my dad if we won. He said that we did." (Tulsa World)

Want some hoops? Before attending Saturday's 7 p.m. kickoff against Nebraska, Oklahoma fans can get a glimpse of the Big 12 Conference men's favorite when the Sooners hold an intrasquad basketball scrimmage at McCasland Field House. The scrimmage is open and free to the public. Doors will open at 2:30 p.m., with drills starting at 3, followed by two 15-minute periods of live action beginning at 3:30. (The Oklahoman)
