The Oklahoma Cornhusker Club (OCC) meets regularly to celebrate University of Nebraska Athletics, particularly football. With nearly 200 family memberships, and chapters in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, the OCC is your alumni connection to the University of Nebraska! We host football Watch Parties in Tulsa and Oklahoma City, and have an annual Christmas Banquet in Tulsa featuring guest speakers from Nebraska football.
Annual membership dues are paid each calendar year in January and February.

With a heavy heart, I must inform you that the Oklahoma Cornhusker Club leadership has decided not to hold watch parties this season.
Several factors went into this difficult decision. Positive COVID-19 cases in both the Tulsa and Oklahoma City areas remain high and are not significantly trending downward. Many of our members are in the at-risk age category, and we could not ask them to participate in organized events. The feedback we received from members across the state was either that they would not attend watch parties this season or were very unlikely to participate in watch parties, leaving just a handful of members who might participate. And none of us wanted to be in a position where someone became ill because they attended a watch party. While attending watch parties is always at the individual’s own risk, we feel the risk right now is too high to go forward.
Our leadership agrees that we will continue to monitor local cases of the Novel Coronavirus. If we feel comfortable that the risk is significantly reduced, we might host an event.
We are considering ways to keep our members engaged with the club and with one another. I suspect the Athletic Department will have some method for virtual participation during games. If so, we will try to leverage that process and involve our members.
Other than the game at Ohio State on Fox, no game times or networks have been announced. We encourage you to wear your Husker colors and watch each game. Share your pictures of you watching from home. You can post on our Facebook pages, and I will grab photos to share on our website. I will continue to write my post-game observations and share them with you.
Let us pray for an end to the pandemic so we can again gather and cheer on our Huskers. Until then, please stay safe.
Be well, and as always,
Go B1G RED!

Observations on the Penn State Game 11/14/2020
Not since 1895 has a Nebraska home opener happened this late in the year. That’s not all. It has been 50 weeks, nearly a year, since the Huskers last played inside Memorial Stadium!
McCaffrey gets the start. Playing with tempo, a false start nearly derails the drive. Mental mistakes. Captains and teammates have to hold those players accountable. And coaches have to bench them. Send the message.
The first drive looked good. Thank goodness they reviewed Warner’s reception. No fumble. Down at the half yard line and McCaffrey sneaks in for the TD. Did you see the red balloons go up?!
