2 1/2 hours prior to OU/TCU kickoff 
Sarkeys Energy Center Atrium | 100 Boyd St., Norman

Join us for a come-and-go reception in the Sarkeys Energy Center Atrium.

Location and Logistics:
The easiest thing will be to enter the door just below ground level in the northwest corner and the atrium is one floor down from that.  Sorry, we cannot offer free parking for the reception (parking on game days is always an issue!).  We are anticipating a morning kickoff so light breakfast food will be available. If kickoff is at a later time, our food options will change accordingly.  Please RSVP at the link above or by emailing if you plan to attend.  We look forward to seeing you in Norman!
