The OU Club of Greater Kansas City (OUCKC) wishes our Sooner Nation merry, happy and safe holidays and thanks you all for your great support through attendance, donations and volunteering. We look forward to being together for the OU College Football Playoff Rose Bowl Watch Party & Scholarship Drawing Monday, January 1, 2018 @ 4:00PM vs. Georgia at Tanner’s Bar & Grill – College Blvd.
The Big 12 Championship Game 13 watch party was attended by 84 Sooners and had an electric environment that got Sooners interacting across Tanner’s throughout the exciting game, high fiving each other as OUr team took control and then won OUr 11th Big 12 Championship! Sooners again supported scholarships through the halftime prize drawing that awarded 17 prizes valued at $231. Later, OUr pride and confidence that Baker would win the Heisman were on display as we celebrated the Big 12 win, securing a spot in the CFP and the chance for an 8th National Championship!
