Fans had an opportunity to meet and interact with the 2014 Sooners as well as new head coach Pete Hughes. During the game, student-athletes patrolled the stands, handing out candy to children in attendance who joined the team by coming to the stadium in costume.
“I couldn’t be happier with the fan turnout from Thursday night’s game, having them come out and be a part of program for a night,” said Hughes. “I think including the community as a part of our team is something that will pay dividends and increase the quality of our program in the future. It was also great to get everyone involved in raising money and awareness for a cause that we’re very close to.”
Oklahoma's players were on the field in costume and entertained the fans with a fun game featuring players in costumes ranging from superheroes to cartoon characters and rock stars.
The final tally of funds raised to help "Strikeout ALS" have yet to be released.
