The OSU Football experience reaches far outside Boone Pickens Stadium. Fans come from all over the state to experience game day and all that comes with it. And as a student, you get to be front and center!

are you ready?

How do you capitalize on the ultimate game day experience, you ask? 👇



Students can buy an all-sports pass. This gets you into every Oklahoma State home event in every sport for just one price.

PRO TIP: You can even put it on your bursar!  

If you don't want to participate in all the games, purchase a single ticket.



Hype up the Cowboys during The Walk to the stadium led by Coach Gundy, the spirit squads, and the OSU Marching Band. Be ready two hours before kickoff on the south side of the Student Union.

An American tradition. If you choose to take part in it, be responsible. There are certain areas around the stadium that prohibit alcohol consumption, know where they are. Note: if you appear intoxicated, you will not be allowed into the game.

Use your student ID to enter through the West End Zone gate and get a prime spot in the Student Section. If you want to sit for the whole game, we wouldn't suggest the Student Section. This is where the action happens. PRO TIP: Student Section is for standing.

Possession or consumption of alcohol in the general seating areas of Boone Pickens Stadium is prohibited and violators are subject to ejection and possible legal action. Just watch and enjoy the game!

You can use your meal plan and bursar at the concession stand. Try the chocolate-covered cheesecake, it's a touchdown for sure.

When the announcer yells "HERE.....COMES.... BULLET!" Go. Wild. The OSU Spirit Rider will race the flag down the field after each touchdown.

I say ORANGE, you say POWER. And don’t be wimpy about it. Belt it.

You will want to know the words to the fight song and the Alma Mater hymn. Just sayin’.  



Of course, wear #AmericasBrightestOrange every chance you get but especially on game days. When it's hot, wear loose fitting clothing to prevent overheating. When it's cold, put hand warmers in your pockets and socks to keep you warm.

Wear shoes that will keep you comfortable touchdown after touchdown.



If you see something that doesn't look quite right, report it. There will be police officers and game day staff around the stadium who can help you. Download the Orange Shield app for quick access to safety resources.

First-Aid Rooms are located on the plaza and mezzanine levels (southwest and northwest side) of Boone Pickens Stadium.

You only have a few years to experience this, soak it all in!

Most importantly, remember you are a direct representation of our university. Be smart and responsible.
