It looks like Ohio State will bring plenty of Buckeyes fans to Norman, Okla., for Saturday’s game.
Some of the takeover will include an Ohio State pep rally event at the Sooners’ Lloyd Noble Center, which is home to Oklahoma’s basketball teams.
The event, according to Ohio State’s alumni website, will be held this Saturday at the arena, which is about 1.5 miles from the football stadium. The event has already sold out all 800 tickets, said ESPN’s Jake Trotter. Along with the Ohio State marching band and Brutus, food and drinks will be available.
However, seating is on the Lloyd Noble floor, not in the stands. Ohio State says they sold all 800 tickets for the event.

The big news, of course, is that Oklahoma is OK with visiting fans holding an Ohio State rally the same day as a huge non-conference game. There’s no doubt a good amount of money involved, however, so both sides will be happy.
