OU's Number One Fan Prepares for Red River Rivalry
OKLAHOMA CITY, OK-- Michael Christian has been a Sooner fan for as long as he can remember.
"I'm not a bandwagon fan, put it that way," he said.
Some know Christian as the "Stats Master."
"DeMarco Murray was the leading touchdown for his career at 65," Christian explained.
From offense to defense, to scores from each Red River Rivalry Game, Christian knows his Sooner Football history.
"2003, 65-13," he recalls, "2004, 12-0."
A fifteen year volunteer with OU Athletics, Christian spends most of his time volunteering with the baseball team, but when it's time for the OU-Texas Game, you are sure to find him in the stands.
"I can't describe it," he said, "people actually have to experience it for themselves."
Christian has traveled down to Dallas for the Red River Rivalry Game for the last three years, but his mother, Polly Christian, will never forget watching her son run through the tunnel at his first Red River Rivalry Game as a child.
"I cried," she remembers, "I was so excited, yeah, it was just one of those things that bring special memories."
Polly says Christian's father was a member of the OU Chain Crew, so in their family, love for the Oklahoma Sooners runs deep.
"I always support them," said Christian, "no matter what."
Christian's family heads down to Dallas for the game on Friday, and he's cautiously optimistic for a Sooners victory.

Oklahoma lawmakers applaud Altus AFB training unit
May 23, 2013 20:35 GMT
ALTUS, Okla. (AP) -- Southwestern Oklahoma lawmakers are applauding the selection of Altus Air Force Base as the first formal training unit for the Air Force's new KC-46 air refueling tanker.
Sen. Mike Schulz of Altus said Thursday that the training unit will be good for the region's economy. Schulz says the unit means new construction jobs and additional positions for maintenance and technical support.
Rep. Charles Ortega of Altus says the Altus base's selection is a positive reflection not only on the base, but on the community and the state.
The Air Force plans to buy 179 KC-46 aircraft in the first part of a three-step plan to replace existing refueling aircraft. The new aircraft will have more refueling capacity and will be more efficient.
