Sooners Alternate Logo
The Oklahoma Sooners are a college football team with a long and storied history. As part of that history, they have had several alternate logos over the years, each one unique and representative of their proud traditions.
The first logo used by the Sooners was introduced in 1909 when they were known as the University of Oklahoma Agriculturalists. It featured an image of an Indian chief wearing a traditional headdress set against an orange background with white trimming around it to create a shield-like shape. This logo stayed in use until 1971 when it was replaced by another version featuring two crossed tomahawks surrounded by feathers inside a circle on top of four stars representing each corner state: Kansas, Colorado, Texas, and New Mexico.
In 1997 yet another alternate logo was unveiled for use during special occasions such as bowl games or rivalry matchups; this one depicted Chief Wahoo holding up both hands while standing atop OU's signature "O" symbol which itself is encircled with three red stripes representing courage strength & honor respectively. The current iteration features Sooner Schooner pulled along by two horses galloping across open plains all enclosed within five interlocking circles signifying unity among students alumni staff & fans alike. All these different designs serve to represent Oklahoma’s rich heritage while also helping them stand out from other teams nationally!
