TX OU Weekend


The Red River Showdown (aka: Red River Rivalry & Red River Shootout) has been one of college football’s top games for over a century. The University of Oklahoma Sooners and University of Texas Longhorns have been playing each other in football since 1900. Their early games were home match-ups that rotated between Norman, Oklahoma (or OKC) and Austin, Texas. In 1912, Texas & Oklahoma played in Dallas for the first time with OU winning 21-6. The atmosphere for the game at the neutral site was such a hit that in 1914 the schools moved the game to Dallas permanently. Every meeting since then has been played in Dallas, with the majority of them being hosted at the Cotton Bowl.

This legendary matchup is known by many names; Oklahoma fans commonly refer to it as OU/Texas game and Longhorns fans call it Texas/OU weekend. Many folks know it as the Red River Showdown. Since corporate sponsorships have gotten involved some have taken to calling it the Red River Rivalry. One thing that all fans who have attended will agree upon is that the Texas/Oklahoma match-up at the Cotton Bowl is truly unique. There are other legendary rivalries in college football, but few (if any) can match the excitement of Sooners-Longhorns.

Once you leave the sights, sounds and smells of the State Fair to walk into the Cotton Bowl, you then are witness to one of the great pictures in college football. Texas hasn’t beaten OU since 2015. Do oddsmakers give the Longhorns a chance Saturday?
