Boomer & Sooner

Mascots

Boomer and Sooner are the costumed mascots that represent the University of Oklahoma and the OU Athletics Department. The characters are an extension of the Sooner Schooner and its horses to be enjoyed by fans -- especially children -- at all OU athletics contests. Boomer and Sooner feature traditional collegiate gear as part of their regular uniforms, but they also don team uniforms for football and men's and women's basketball games.
 
The pair were introduced at the Big Red Rally on campus on August 26, 2005. A number of groups participated in the process of researching and devising the new mascots over a period of nearly three years. The OU Athletics Department and student leaders recognized the need for a mascot to provide representation at all OU athletics contests as well as attend charity events and visit children's hospitals. With that in mind, student congress passed a resolution in favor of the development and implementation of a unified mascot. The Mascot Committee was formed and began work on what would become Boomer and Sooner.
 
The role of the Sooner Schooner, one of the most recognized symbols in all of intercollegiate athletics, does not change. The Schooner is the official mascot of the University of Oklahoma.
