Former OU Players Greet Fans At Durant Rally


DURANT, OK -- Three former OU players stopped to sign autographs and take pictures with fans at a rally before the big OU-Texas game.

It was part of the annual Tailgate Party held at the Choctaw Travel Plaza across from the Choctaw Casino on Highway 69/75.

Some fans say they remember watching these players in action and enjoyed meeting them today. The players tell us they remember the special feeling of walking into the Cotton Bowl on game day.

"You walk down the tunnel and you've got half orange and half red, it's an experience if you hadn't been a player, you know it's hard to describe," says former OU player Marcus Dupree.

Former player De'mond Parker says he will be attending the game for the first time in eight years, and he can't wait to see the two teams duke it out.
