City leaders and University of Tulsa officials team up to paint the iconic Blue Dome downtown as a symbol of True Blue TU Week. It’s in honor of the football team’s playing for a USA Conference Championship this Saturday. It’s televised by ESPN, and head coach Bill Blankenship would like to see a full stadium. He says there is a loyal fan base, but he’d like to expand it and this weekend is a good chance to show off the university and the town.
Mayor Bartlett has issued a proclamation officially declaring this True Blue TU Week.
