OU Officials Expand Tailgate Options

NORMAN – OU President David Boren has ordered university officials to reevaluate the impact of any changes on permitted tailgate locations to make sure tailgating remains as convenient as possible for OU fans on game day. New permitted areas have been added.

"The university recognizes that tailgating is an important part of the game day experience for many fans," Boren said. "Our goal is to maintain the security of our students in campus housing while accommodating fans as much as possible." 

For those who have previously been tailgating along Lindsey Street, the tailgating area has been moved one block west to the area in front of Cate Center, which is now office and classroom space. In addition to the area on Lindsey Street that has now been made available, please review the final updated map online to view additional areas that are open to accommodate the fan experience. Available areas are shaded green on the map.

Those who have specific questions about locations should contact (405) 325-3100 or
