At Landers Chevrolet of Norman, Oklahoma, we LOVE our Sooners, and it’s nice to take a trip down memory lane and see where the Sooners started. Landers Chevrolet of Norman, Oklahoma, is a proud sponsor of Sooner athletics and we are proud to offer several crimson and cream vehicles that are tailgate ready! Take a look at our new Chevy models right here.

To be honest, our Sooners rock! For the 2019 season, they have nine wins and only one loss. The Sooners are first in the Big 12 conference and undefeated at home! Sooner victories are fantastic and throughout the years, they have overall been an excellent performing team.

Since the team was founded in 1903, the Sooners have played 111 seasons. During the program’s history, they have played a total of 1,205 games. 852 of those games came out victorious and 47 ties. Only 306 games ended in a loss for the Sooners. The Sooners have 45 conference championships and have been to 52 bowl games.
