The rest of the home schedule has St. Mary (Kan.) coming in Sept. 7 and the first conference game Oct. 5 against Southwestern Assemblies of God University. Wayland Baptist visits Oct. 19, and Panhandle State will be the Homecoming opponent Nov. 9.

General admission single game tickets are $10, and reserved bench seating sections are $20. Reserved chair back seats and VIP tent tickets are sold out. A limited number of business partner packages are still available.

Due to the large demand for tickets, general admission tickets do not guarantee a seat and may be valid for standing room access only. General admission seating is on a first come, first serve basis.

Fans wishing to purchase handicapped seating may do so by calling 405-585-5411. The home opener is scheduled for 1:30 p.m., Aug. 31st.

OBU also hosts its first Football Media Day at 10 a.m., Aug. 10, at Bison Field at Eddie Hurt Athletic Center. Fans are invited to the free opportunity to meet the coaches and players. Media members are invited to conduct interviews with the team.

As part of the Opening Day festivities, OBU is planning to recognize players, managers, cheerleaders and others who were connected to that 1940 team, as well as direct descendants and others connected to teams prior to the 1940 squad. People with those connections are asked to contact assistant athletic director Brian Morris at 405-585-5411 or at
