OU Fan Posts Emotional Note After Tornadoes: "We Lost Our Cars & Home, But Not Our Love For Oklahoma Football"

Severe weather has ravaged much of the Midwest this week, as tornadoes and floods have been responsible for the deaths of at least 26 people since Saturday night. One family, which claims to have lost their cars and their home in a tornado in Rowlett, Texas, isn't letting the destruction take away from the excitement of Oklahoma's inclusion in the College Football Playoff.

Justin Abercrombie posted photos and video of the destruction, telling his followers that all 10 of his family members are okay. He also let everyone know that their love for Oklahoma football rages on. OU running back Samaje Perine shared the post on social media.
