Oklahoma is having an outbreak of Sooner Fever! People with it can’t stop screaming “Boomer Sooner,” making OU motions with their arms or bleeding crimson.

Is there a cure for Sooner Fever?

There is no current cure for Sooner Fever. To treat symptoms, fans should wear as much Crimson & Cream as possible and share the hashtag #SoonerFever this season on social media.


What starts as a subtle “Boomer Sooner” chant can turn into full-blown Sooner Fever, so it’s important to recognize the signs.

Symptoms can include, but aren’t limited to:

  • Crimson & Cream facial discoloring
  • Hoarseness, occurring on Saturday, and occasionally Sunday nights
  • Constantly shouting “BOOMER!” in crowded, public spaces
  • Aversion to any shade of orange
  • Heavy ring fingers
  • Extreme tailgating
  • Boomer Sooner playing on continuous loop in your mind
  • Much, much more

All symptoms could escalate during play-off or championship games
