When: 7 to 10 p.m. Friday

Info: Winners will get a copy of “Call of Duty: Black Ops II” for PlayStation 3 and Xbox 360
The Union Programming Board will host a “Call of Duty: Black Ops” tournament Friday in Oklahoma Memorial Union’s Scholars Room on the third floor, according the event’s Facebook page.
“I prefer ‘Black Ops’ over a lot of other video games,” said Chelsea Galligher, UPB historian and computer science sophomore. “I know that it is a popular video game, and the new one is coming out next week, so I thought it would be cool to get a bunch of people together to play video games, and the winners get to win the video game (“Call of Duty: Black Ops II”).”
There will be two divisions: one for PlayStation 3 and one for Xbox 360 players. Winners of both tournaments will win a free copy of “Call of Duty: Black Ops II,” according to the event’s Facebook page.
Competitors must be current OU students and bring their own controllers.
To sign up, students have to pick up a sign up sheet in the Student Life office on the third floor of the Union, or participants can click on the event’s Facebook page which is linked to a digital sign up sheet.
Participants turning in their sign up sheets can drop them off at the Union business office on the fourth floor, suite 428, according to the sign up sheet.
The tournament is free to enter, and will last from 7 to 10 p.m.
“Depending on how many people the tournaments have signed up will determine the specifics of each tournament’s rules,” Galligher said. “The winners of each tournament will receive a voucher [from Best Buy] and they [winners]don’t have to pay for anything. They get a 65-dollar game for free.”
