    scHool nicknaMe “Bronchos” was the nickname selected for Central Oklahoma

    in 1922 by Mrs. C.W. Wantland, wife of long-time UCO football coach C.W. Wantland. The name was chosen from a number of suggestions for the name of UCO’s football team and became the nickname for all athletic teams at the school.

    Mrs. Wantland was made an honorary member of the Letterman’s Club as a result of selecting the nickname, becoming the first woman admitted to that organization.

    scHool colors Bronze and blue were chosen as Central Oklahoma’s school colors

    early in the fall of 1895 by school president Edmund Dandridge Murdaugh. The first public display of the bronze and blue was in Guthrie when a student represented UCO in the first oratorical contest ever held in Oklahoma.

    record in his first season and coached two All-Americans in first-team selection Jon Kamies and third-team pick Landon Eason.
