Thousands of fans are expected to converge at OBU's Eddie Hurt Field on Saturday to experience the first OBU Bison football game since 1940.

Fans that can’t make it to the game will be able to catch every play live through Internet and radio broadcasts.

The first kickoff in 73 years will be carried live in Shawnee on AM-1450, Cool Gold KGFF. OBU Hall of Fame members John Parrish and Norris Russell will have the call on radio and on internet audio at the Bison Athletics website.

OBU and broadcasting partner Stretch Internet also will carry a live video broadcast with OBU students providing all aspects of the production. MT Bralley will handle the play by play with color from Jonathan Polasek and field reporting by Raven Posteal.
