EL PASO, Texas -- University of Oklahoma officials announced today that the Tickets for Troops opportunity will end at 3 p.m., Tuesday.

OU Athletics Ticket Office personnel will facilitate the donation at Fort Bliss, which is located near the game site of El Paso, Texas, Tuesday evening.
The Tickets for Troops promotion enters this week with more than 700 tickets sold.
