Northeast Oklahoma: 1985 Oklahoma Football & The '85 Kansas City Royals

If you go into the northeastern part of Oklahoma, from Tulsa to the Missouri border, you don’t find a lot in terms of major sports. But you have Oklahoma University football and Kansas City is a 270-mile drive from Tulsa. And in 1985 that would have been all you needed as a sports fan to watch a national football champion and a World Series winner. The last part of ’85 in particular was a fine one for people in this neck of the woods, as they watched the Royals come down the stretch and the Sooner Schooner look to add another title to the great tradition that is Oklahoma football history.
