College Sports News

Late last year, it was announced that the Oklahoma football program and all Sooners athletic programs would be joining forces with the Jordan Brand in an apparel deal. The Sooners began the third college program to partner with the brand, joining North Carolina and Michigan. On Monday, July 9, the Sooners finally unveiled their new updated look.
