OU was named one of college football's blue blood programs by ESPN. The Sooners previously came in at No. 2 in the Associated Press' ranking of college football programs. 

This story was updated at 3:55 p.m. to include information from the OU athletic department.

Ohio State has rented out the Lloyd Noble Center for a pregame prep rally on Saturday before OU's game vs the Buckeyes. 

The pep rally, dubbed the 'Buckeye Bash', is scheduled to start at 4 p.m. and run until 5:30 p.m. However, the event is listed as sold out

Reaction from OU fans poured in on Twitter as the event made the rounds on Sunday night. 

Per ESPN's Jake Trotter, Ohio State sold 800 tickets for the event. 

However, some fans were less amused.

An OU spokesman said this is a fairly typical event and happens on average more than once per year.

"It's not at all uncommon for the alumni group of a visiting school to rent one of our facilities for a dinner or a tailgate event prior to a football game," the spokesman said. "And when they do this, we give them an option of holding it outside in a parking lot or inside a facility, and Ohio State opted for inside the Lloyd Noble Center."

The spokesman said the event is capped at 800 people and that OU alumni hold similar events for road games.
