NORMAN, Oklahoma - The University of Oklahoma announced Thursday two major changes for its annual Meet the Sooners Day.

The autograph session will be restricted to children ages 14 and younger and the event will be held at the practice fields near Gaylord Family-Oklahoma Memorial Stadium on Aug. 6.

"Our desire with Meet the Sooners Day is to accommodate as many fans as possible," said Kenny Mossman, senior associate athletics director for communications, "We've discussed this event at length and examined it from every angle. The bottom line is that our fan support is so great, we realistically cannot accommodate everyone when this event is held on a Saturday.

The event is moving from the rugby fields, which was the site in recent years. The university also says that summer school dates influenced its decision to hold the event on Saturday this year.

"The crowd numbers were very large on weekday mornings and we know that without some modification, those numbers would grow beyond what we can reasonably manage on the weekend. For that reason, we've decided to focus on the children."

Children ages 14 and younger are allowed a maximum of one item to be signed and may be accompanied by a maximum of one adult. Adults will not be permitted to submit items for autographs.

Meet The Sooners Day Schedule:
7:00 a.m. - Gate 7 of stadium opens with Kids Club line and general line
10:00 a.m. - OG+E Sooner Kids Club autograph session begins
10:30 a.m. - General autograph session begins
Noon - Autograph session concludes
