Oakland launched new Game Day app for Android and iOS.

The Golden Grizzlies have joined the ranks of Georgia and Pitt and are offering the CBS Gameday Live app for free to Oakland sports fans on iOS or Android phones. Oakland is the first non-football school in the NCAA to do this.

The new app provides many of the features you can find on GoldenGrizzlies.com — you can check the Golden Grizzlies Twitter feed and find out how to buy tickets to the basketball home-opener all in the same application.

“To better serve our fans and student-athletes, we developed the Golden Grizzlies Live app,” said Director of Athletics Jeff Konya in a Golden Grizzlies press release. “This provides easy and instant access to up-to-the-minute news and information. We understand that sports fans follow their teams on their smartphones and tablets, so it was important for our organization to provide that service with a first class product.”

“We continue to be on the frontline of intercollegiate athletics, becoming just one of sixteen programs to have this Gameday app,” said Senior Associate AD Padraic McMeel in the press release. “This is an exciting time for Golden Grizzly fans and student-athletes, and we look forward to continuing to provide a first-class experience.”
