NORMAN, Okla. – The University of Oklahoma will be featured on FOX COLLEGE SATURDAY prior to Saturday’s primetime telecast of the Oklahoma vs. West Virginia game that airs nationally on FOX at 6 p.m. CT.

The full feature is tentatively scheduled to air at 9:45 a.m. CT on the FOX COLLEGE SATURDAY pregame show hosted by Erin Andrews and Eddie George on FOX Sports 1. FOX COLLEGE SATURDAY airs in its entirety from 9-11 a.m. CT on Saturdays. 

An abbreviated encore presentation of the University of Oklahoma feature is also slated to air nationally on FOX during the pregame show leading into the OU vs. WVU game. The FOX pregame show will begin at 5:30 p.m. CT before kickoff at Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.

OU Football head coach Bob Stoops and OU Softball head coach Patty Gasso were both interviewed for the feature along with other members of the OU Football team.

When a series of violent tornadoes devastated numerous communities across the state of May, the University of Oklahoma responded by providing shelter and other services to displaced individuals and relief workers. Several members of the OU Athletics family were directly impacted by storms. Numerous members of the OU community responded by lending a helping hand wherever they could to assist in relief efforts.

Whether it was helping families dig out of their homes, providing words of comfort, distributing and unloading relief supplies or visiting displaced individuals, the University of Oklahoma community was there and will continue to be there for our fellow Oklahomans throughout this ongoing recovery effort.
