TULSA, Okla. – With college football nearly here, News On 6 will be airing “Oklahoma’s Own Originals: 1st & Football” on August 31 at 9 p.m. to give fans a preview of what to expect this year on the gridiron.

Presented by News On 6 and your Green Country Chevy Dealers, the one-hour TV special will include content from the state’s largest sports department staff. News On 6 Sports Director John Holcomb, News 9 Sports Director Dean Blevins and Blitz Football Analyst Dusty Dvoracek will all take an in-depth look at the upcoming college football season.

“Could there be something extra special involving our local teams this fall? Of course,” said John Holcomb, News On 6’s Sports Director. “The Sooners looked primed to make a big run, and all the defensive experience back for the Cowboys could be a real key as OSU looks to challenge for a top spot in the Big 12. We’ll explore Spencer Sanders’ continued growth at quarterback as one of the big keys for Mike Gundy’s team. And, TU will look to build off last season’s momentum with an exciting offense.”
