Atmosphere

Football is huge in Norman Oklahoma as the Sooners are one of the most successful teams in college football having claimed seven national championships since 1950. Likewise, tailgating is huge in Norman making a Sooners tailgate the place to be on game day. You’ll find that tailgating is a huge deal to Sooners fans as they get things kicked off at noon on the day before games. You’ll need to get to the lots early if you want to get a good spot, so don’t dawdle, or you’ll miss out.

The lots around Gaylord Family Oklahoma Memorial Stadium are packed with tents, grills, and coolers on game day. All you’ll see is a sea of crimson and red tents as you make your way through the tailgates here. You’ll also smell the delicious aromas of some of the best barbecue in the nation as well as many other tailgate favorites including burgers, chicken, and much more.

Campus Corner also offers a nice change of pace for those of you looking for something a bit different from the traditional tailgate set up. Here you’ll find plenty of bars and restaurants that will surely wet your whistle or feed your appetite. The great thing about Campus Corner is that unlike some places where going to the bars takes you away from the game day traditions here in Norman the band marches right through Campus Corner, so you won’t miss a beat.
