Vaccines are here and life is starting to turn back to normal in Oklahoma. With many of the restrictions being rolled back in the Sooner state, events and tourist attractions are also staring to open up for the locals and tourist alike. Most traditional events should be on the schedule for fall, and some events such as the Redbud Classic have been moved to the fall for 2021.
There is nothing bigger in Oklahoma that Sooners and Cowboy football games. Majestic stadiums and football teams with legitimate title aspirations make home games the big ticket in the fall.
Limited Fans have been allowed at the games so far. Tickers are not that hard to get. The Sooners are off to their worst start since the John Blake era. The Cowboys look like they might be the team to beat in the BIG XII
