(Norman-AP) -- Football tickets could be hard to come by at Oklahoma this year.

The success of second-year head coach Mike Stoops is getting the credit for sellouts of home games in Memorial Stadium.

O-U went 7-4 last year in Stoops rookie season as coach and made its first bowl appearance in five years.

School officials say tickets were renewed at a 99 percent rate. Only 10 tickets were not renewed.

Officials called the tickets sales phenomenal.
