Following suit of several other universities, OU adopted a “yell” in the late 1800’s. The “Yell” would be something that all Oklahoma fans would chant during OU athletic events.

Oklahoma students developed the first Yell, however it was difficult to chant in repetition. Later on, another style similar to Kansas’ Rock Chalk Jayhawk yell was adopted.
