Student seating will now include floor seating, and the concrete barriers that typically separate the students from the rest of the arena have been removed. The Pride of Oklahoma will be moved to a new location behind the student section.
Additional enhancements to fan experiences for students include a “hype tunnel” complete with LED lights and speakers and easier access to the student section in the hopes of increasing engagement from students at home games.
Home basketball games are free to all students who purchased football season tickets and show their student ID at the door. The Sooners first home game will be an exhibition game on Oct. 29 against Southeastern Oklahoma State.
