The Reynolds Rowdies can get especially loud when rivals are in town, so if you want to see the Reynolds Center at its best get tickets when Tulsa squares off with Oral Roberts, Oklahoma, or Oklahoma State.
In addition to the fun atmosphere, you’ll find plenty of extras to check out at the Reynolds Center.
