Happy 2020 United States Presidential election day, friends and fans!

The Oklahoma Sooners have the day off this Tuesday in order to allow ample time for the student-athletes and staff members to get out and vote. Redshirt junior H-back Jeremiah Hall shared his thoughts on the importance of using his voice and his rights to make a difference in the world around him.

For most of the OU football players on the team this season, today marks the first Presidential Election they are eligible to vote in. Senior LB Caleb Kelly shared this post as he himself is a first-time voter.

Running backs coach DeMarco Murray also followed through on his civic duty by voting today. It’s a powerful tool, folks, and it’s perhaps the greatest way to express yourself as a part of this nation.

No matter where you stand on the political spectrum, using your right to vote is one of the most important things you can do as a citizen of this nation. With that said, please make your voice heard and your vote count.

Now onto today’s Hot Links! OU releases more COVID-19 testing data, Lincoln Riley is pleased with how his team responded to the prolonged road trip, Florida’s Dan Mullen gets tagged with a fine and more!
