Jep and Jessica Robertson of the hit A&E TV series Duck Dynasty were in Norman, Okla., on Saturday, Aug. 31, when the Oklahoma Sooners took the football field for their 2013 season opener against Louisiana-Monroe. The opening game was sponsored by Hyster Company, a leading forklift manufacturer.
“We’re excited to kick off the 2013 college football season in Norman,” said Mark Hoch, director of sales for Hyster Company. “Toughness is a common theme between Hyster, the cast of A&E’s Duck Dynasty and the OU football team, so Hyster is sponsoring this season opener to highlight our durable lift trucks.”
Jep and Jessica attended OU Fan Fest as part of the football pre-game festivities at the Hyster® Forklift Interactive Tent for pictures, and met with fans at the Sooner Sports Properties Hospitality Village. The Robertsons took part in the pre-game ceremonies on the field as part of the Hyster game sponsor presentation before watching the game from a suite at Gaylord Family – Oklahoma Memorial Stadium.
A&E’s Duck Dynasty series follows a family of bearded, Louisiana duck hunters who own a multi-million dollar duck call business—Duck Commander. The show recently kicked off its fourth season on A&E, with the 2013 premiere setting a non-fiction, cable TV record with 11.8 million viewers.
Jules Jeptha "Jep" Robertson is the youngest son of Phil and Kay Robertson.

Jep and Jessica reside in Louisiana with their four children: Lily, Merritt, Priscilla and River.
