Norman is the third-largest city in Oklahoma, but you wouldn't know that from its small-town, close-knit feel. It also helps that everyone is wearing the crimson-and-cream of the Sooners.

It's one of those towns where, on gameday, the action isn't limited to the college campus or just around the football stadium. The rally cries are heard in all parts of Norman, as locals and tourists mingle together and swap stories of their collective love for the Sooner Schooner and Bob Stoops' latest squad of superstars.

What Norman has going for it that a lot of college towns don't is its proximity to the state's "big city," in this case Oklahoma City. The boroughs are just up or down the road from each other, keeping Norman from feeling out-of-the-way while still holding onto that small-town charm.
