The Sooner Club of Las Vegas is a support group of the University of Oklahoma. Membership is open to alumni, friends and Sooner fans in the southern Nevada area.
Our purpose is to:
Provide fellowship for alumni and friends of OU
Encourage a better informed alumni body
Promote the interests and needs of the University in the community
Our main goal is to provide an annual academic scholarship to a graduating senior from the Clark County School District in Southern Nevada. Funds for the scholarship come from membership dues and tax-deductible donations from our members. They are matched dollar for dollar by the University, effectively doubling our scholarship amount.
We thank you for your continuing support.
Glen Williams - President
Kevin Morsey - Vice President
Bryan Kurz - Scholarship Chair
Brian Nixon - Steering and Planning Committee Chair

Dues are due! Annual dues are $20. If you pay by check, please make it out to "OU Foundation." Members who pay by check will receive a receipt from the University for their taxes. You may pay with cash if you prefer, but you won't get a receipt. Dues are our primary source of money to fund our scholarship.

We are trying something different for our Watch Parties this season. We will split the games between La Piazza at 1000 N. Main Street (our home the past couple of years) and Juan's Flaming Fajitas & Cantina at 9640 West Tropicana (about 1 block west of Fort Apache). All morning games (games starting before 11:00 AM) will be at La Piazza. All games starting 11:00 AM or later will be at Juan's Flaming Fajitas & Cantina. This gives us a location in the central part of the valley and another in the southwest.
We have Sooner Club of Las Vegas T-shirts, sweatshirts, hoodies and poker chips for sale. Contact Glen Williams at 702-927-6184 or firstname.lastname@example.org if you want to meet to purchase any of these items. All profits from the shirts and poker chips will go to our scholarship fund.
T-shirts are $20, sweatshirts are $25 and hoodies are $30. Poker chips are $2 each, 3 for $5 or 7 for $10.

WEST VIRGINIA RECAP
West Virginia put up some big numbers on us through the air, and scored 24 points in the first half. But the Sooners proved once again to be up to the task and with the exception of a late garbage touchdown, we dominated the second half and defeated the Mountaineers 45 to 33. Samaje Perine put on a show, running for 242 yards and 4 touchdowns. He was the first Sooner since DeMarco Murray in 2010 to rush for over 200 yards. Alex Ross added a touchdown on a 100 yard kickoff return and Trevor Knight failed to throw a touchdown pass....but he did catch one, a 4 yard TD pass from Duron Neal on a trick play! The defense got in on the scoring too with a pick 6. They had two interceptions and a fumble recovery in the game. Sanchez picked up his 6th interception in the last 7 games. Sterling Shephard topped the century mark again, catching 6 passes for 101 yards and Trevor completed 16 of 29 passes for 205 yards. OU finished with 209 yds passing and 301 yds rushing. WVU had 376 yds passing and 137 yds rushing. The Sooners wore there alternate "Rough Riders" uniforms for the first time. The Sooners have a bye week next week and then head to TCU on October 4th and then to Big D to take on the Longhorns on the 11th.
NEXT WATCH PARTY - OKLAHOMA at TCU
Our watch party will be on Saturday, October 4th. Kickoff time and TV coverage has not yet been determined. I expect the game will be on the Fox Sports Network. The game time and TV coverage information will be posted here as soon as it is released and the decision will be made on the Watch Party location at that time.
