Oklahoma paints end zones red ahead of Big 12 home opener vs. Iowa State

It’s October, Oklahoma’s first conference home game is Saturday and, as per tradition, the Sooners’ end zones have a different look.

The Sooners laid down a fresh coat of red paint in their end zones with ‘OKLAHOMA’ filled in with white paint and black outline.

On a nice day in Norman, Okla., it’s quite the sight.

The Sooners typically go with non-painted end zones in nonconference play with ‘OKLAHOMA’ filled in with red paint and outlined in white.

The change signals a new part of the season as the Sooners welcome Big 12 foe Iowa State to Owen Field on Saturday. The Sooners are undefeated entering October, while the Cyclones are 2-2 after a 17-7 loss to Texas last Saturday.

Kickoff between the Sooners and Cyclones is set for 12 p.m. ET and the game will be featured on FOX.
