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, seating is on the Lloyd Noble floor, not in the stands. Ohio State says they sold all 800 tickets for the event.— Jake Trotter (@Jake_Trotter) September 12, 2016

There's over 20 RVs parked at the LNC for the Ohio State game this weekend and it's only Monday at 9 am... 😳👀— Matthew Gaylor (@MatthewGaylor) September 12, 2016
Where are they gonna park? RVs dominate LNC parking lot on game day. Problematic. https://t.co/dRKb1mwoZH— Corey Abernathy (@Mr_Abernasty) September 12, 2016
However, some fans were less amused.
@Jake_Trotter Whoever approved this needs to be fired— Chase Thomas (@ChaseThomasNOLA) September 12, 2016
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.
