Football[edit]

The football team plays at Carl Wooten Field and (beginning in the 2016 season) competes in the NCAA Division II Lone Star Conference. In the early nineties, OPSU Aggies football was known as a football powerhouse. The program has recently had tremendous success thanks to the late Mike Wyatt (2007–2010). The 2010 team produced the Aggie football program's first winning season since 2004, going 6–5.

Rodeo[edit]

A point of pride for OPSU is its men's and women's rodeo teams. The school is a member of the Central Plains Region of the National Intercollegiate Rodeo Association (NIRA) and has won several regional and national championships in the sport. As part of their scholarship package, rodeo team members may receive lodging in special housing and stalls for their animals.
