Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Oklahoma FB season ticket renewal rate at 99 percent: OU athletic department officials announced Wednesday season football tickets have been renewed at a 99 percent rate for the upcoming season. The renewal rate is the highest during coach Bob Stoops' 11 seasons as the Sooners' coach and believed to be the highest in university history. Stoops was recently rewarded for bringing the fans to Memorial Stadium with a huge raise last month, bringing his annual salary up to $3.675 million. OU officials said the school's average renewal rate for season football tickets is around 96 percent, but that figure has not dipped below 94 percent in the Stoops era. "We don't have all the figures, but it wouldn't surprise me if that renewal rate led the nation," OU athletic director Joe Castiglione said in a statement. (The Oklahoman)
