The Sooners covertly announced on Twitter yesterday that they are planning to stripe the stadium when Ohio State comes calling on September 17th.

Oklahoma debuted the promotion of striping the stadium in 2012 for their game against Notre Dame. Unfortunately, the extra flair didn’t help the Sooners as the Fighting Irish won 30-13.

Despite the loss, the Oklahoma brass decided to make it an annual tradition, and in 2013 they striped the stadium to open up Big 12 play against West Virginia. This time around the Sooners got the win, 16-7.

In fact, with a win over Tennessee in 2014 and again against West Virginia last season, the Sooners are 3-1 with the alternating crimson and cream fan sections.

Whether that luck will carry over when the Buckeyes come calling is yet to be seen, but it seems to have inspired some other schools to get in on the fun. Last season, Tennessee repaid OU the favor by checkering their stadium in orange and white for the game against the Sooners. And this season, in-state rival Oklahoma State plans on striping Boone Pickens Stadium for their game against Pittsburgh.
