John Scott signs “Bud Wilkinson and the Rise of Oklahoma Football”

December 4, 2021 @ 3:00 pm - 4:30 pm

At the end of World War II, the best college football teams were largely the same as they are today—with one exception: Oklahoma. In 1947, Bud Wilkinson was named OU’s head football coach and became the architect of Oklahoma’s meteoric rise from mediocrity to its present status as a perennial powerhouse. Based on interviews with Wilkinson, former OU president George L. Cross, and former players, author John Scott gives us the behind-the-scenes story of Wilkinson’s years at the University of Oklahoma.
