OU Moving Spring Football Game to Friday Night

[excerpt] NORMAN — With Saturday wind chills expected to dip into the upper 30s and the possibility of rain, University of Oklahoma officials have decided to move the 2019 Spring Game to Friday evening, April 12.

Forecasters provided information that showed Friday evening's temperature will be around 60 with light winds and no precipitation.

Stadium gates 2, 7, 10, 12, 14 and 16 will open to the public at 5:30 p.m., in time for the Lee Brice concert at 6:30 p.m. The game will kick off at 7:30 p.m.

"Naturally, our preference is to play on Saturday, but the weather was going to subject our fans to difficult conditions, and likely would have prevented many from attending," said Vice President and Director of Athletics Joe Castiglione. "We know that decisions of this kind may inconvenience some, and we regret that very much. At the same time, it truly was the student-athletes and fans we had in mind when we made this call. We hope most of our great fans can still attend the game in what should be much better conditions."

Friday Schedule of Events
5:30 p.m. All Gates Open
6:30 p.m. Lee Brice Concert
7:30 p.m. Kickoff
