Each year, members of the OU NROTC run the AT&T Red River Showdown game ball from Norman, Okla. to the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. This year, thanks to USFT, fans can track the Midshipmen’s progress with the ball using a Live GPS Tracking.

The purpose of the NROTC program is to educate and train qualified young men and women for service as commissioned officers in the Marine Corps and in the Navy as unrestricted line officers. As the largest single source of Navy and Marine Corps officers, the NROTC Scholarship program plays an important role in preparing mature young men and women for leadership and management positions in an increasingly technical Navy and Marine Corps.
