NORMAN, Oklahoma -

University of Oklahoma President David Boren announced Friday that the rules governing what the fans could bring into the stadium last year, which allowed purses of reasonable size and seat cushions, will continue to be allowed, subject to reasonable inspection at the gates. 

The changes in the rules recently announced will not be in effect for Saturday's game, while they undergo further review. The University does not want to unduly inconvenience fans.

Allowable Personal Items – Revised

•   Women's purses (smaller than 10"x10")

•   Seat cushions and chair backs

•   EMPTY, clear personal water bottle (for drinking water)  

•   Approved medical devices

•   Approved family care items (diapers, formula, etc. in bag 10"x10" or smaller)

 Non-Allowable ItemsRevised

•   Any and all types of bags and backpacks (conventional or string-type cinch bags)

•   Chair backs with armrests and/or wider than 16"

•   Merchandise bags


A major reconstruction project is currently underway on the I-35 corridor in Norman that will have a major impact on game day traffic flow. The I-35/Main Street Bridge interchange is being completely replaced, meaning there is no egress to or from I-35 to Main Street. Fans are strongly encouraged to plan alternate routes to their parking destination in advance. Extra time should be allowed for both arrival to and departure from the stadium.

Southbound I-35 Traffic (From OKC)

• Fans are encouraged to exit no further south than Tecumseh Road. Alternate routes include:

• Exit 113 (Highway 77 – left exit) – continues into Norman as Flood Avenue

• Exit 112 (Tecumseh Road) provides access to alternate southbound routes running parallel to I-35

• 36th Avenue NW (west of I-35)

• 24th Avenue NW (east of I-35)

• Numerous other alternative southbound routes exist, including:

• Sooner Road/12th Avenue NE

• Sunnylane/Porter

• Western Avenue/60th Avenue NW

Northbound I-35 Traffic (From Pauls Valley)

• The South Canadian River Bridge just south of Norman on I-35 is in the midst of a widening project. Northbound fans should anticipate congestion and delays in this area.
