World’s Largest OU Alumni Club Watch Party: Denver, Colorado
More than 100,000 people gather around Gaylord – Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium six Saturdays in the fall for the hallowed ritual known as tailgating before nearly 90,000 of them funnel into the Palace on the Prairie to watch their Sooners play college football.
The pull of pride for one’s alma mater doesn’t end at I-35 on the way out of town. Across the country, Sooners gather at restaurants, watering holes and homes to root for OU. Among the largest watch parties on any given Saturday is the one thrown by the OU Club of Colorado.
With an average attendance of around 500 Colorado Sooners, the watch party has gained national notoriety as a pacesetter for the celebration of college football allegiance.
So, take a quick glance at the numbers that make up this Super Sooner Soiree.
