Football has returned to college campuses across the US, but not to ORU. Students will have to go elsewhere to get their football fix, and for those starving for football, have no fear, Tulsa is a great place for fans looking for a game to watch.
When it comes to high school football, Tulsa has options galore.
Look no further than Tulsa’s two biggest high schools. Every year, Jenks and Union boast the best football talent in the city. Close behind them are the Bixby Spartans and the Broken Arrow Tigers. All four have great stadiums, and will give fans high-level football to enjoy.
Anytime two of these schools play each other it’s must-see football.
Add in the high school atmosphere, a trip to the concession stand and the crisp fall weather and you have something out of “Friday Night Lights” for less than $10.
For those used to small school football, Tulsa has plenty of options as well. Victory Christian and Lincoln Christian are both 3A schools that have great atmospheres. Their smaller size doesn’t mean they don’t field good football teams to watch.
The University of Tulsa provides Division I college football if high school football isn’t enough.
TU isn’t the most talented team in the nation, and their schedule isn’t the most exciting, but tickets are reasonable for students. An endzone seat will cost you $15.
If you’re one of the many broke college students out there, there are still options. The Hammer Center screens every Thursday night NFL game of the season on the big screen.
Several of the games on the schedule are classic division rivalries like the Vikings v. Packers, Jets v. Patriots, Chargers v. Broncos and the Saints v. Panthers. Many of these games should be the most entertaining football we see all year in the NFL.
No matter what style, level or type of football fix you may be searching for, it’s well within your reach even at ORU.
