The Oklahoma Sooners have the best fans in the country. To thank those who are Sooner Born and Sooner Bred, OU Athletics unveiled Fansgiving. The event was three days full of “Thank You,” with gifts for fans, ticket discounts and much more, because we are thankful for you!

Special Appearances, Surprise Gifts

Three Fansgiving locations down. Monday, we hit up Rudy's BBQ and Country Store with Coach Mark Williams of men's gymnastics and bought everyone in Sooner gear lunch. We also stopped by the ATT Store with baseball's Pete Hughes to give out $25 dollar gift cards. Tuesday, we gave out $25 gift cards at Academy Sports+Outdoors, and bought Sooner fans dinner at Raising Cane's. Wednesday, we wrapped up Fansgiving week with free lunches at Sonic, and head basketball coaches Lon Kruger and Sherri Coale buying people groceries for Thanksgiving at local Homeland locations.
