Zero U (Oklahoma University)

"Zero U” is an unflattering nickname of Oklahoma University (or “OU").  The nickname is most often heard by University of Texas Longhorns fans, especially when UT plays OU at the Red River Rivalry.

The Official Dictionary of GAC-Speak
Zero U: Oklahoma University - Norman, Oklahoma based institution of higher learning (if possible in Oklahoma) where Gunsmoke is still considered a legend; will always have issues with strength of schedule rating due to annual match-up with Texas at the Red River Shootout: may also be called Sooners

10 October 1992, Austin (TX) American-Statesman, “Texas vs. Oklahoma,” pg. A1:
Some 120 UT alumni live in Norman, home of OU, or “Zero U” as One UT-ex dubs it.

Not every Oklahoman roots for zero u, just as every Texan is not a Horns’ fan.
