Oklahoma Sooners vs Texas Longhorns – Red River Rivalry

The Red River Rivalry is one of the greatest not only in college football but in all sports.  The game is commonly referred to as the Texas-OU game or OU-Texas game.  The game is played between the University of Oklahoma and the University of Texas.

The game is played at the historic Cotton Bowl stadium amidst the Texas State Fair. Something unique about this particular rivalry is that ticket sales for the game are equally divided between the two schools, and the Sooner and Longhorn fans are split on the 50-yard line. This creates an amazing atmosphere, because half of the stadium crowd is happy and the other half unhappy, depending on which team is in the lead.
