(AP) – The Texas-Oklahoma rivalry is going to have a very different feel this year. The State Fair is closed and the attendance will be limited to just under 25,000. Everyone must wear a mask.

The annual border rivalry is one of the marquee games of the college season and is defined as much by the spectacle around it as by the play on the field. The coronavirus pandemic has changed all that for the 2020 matchup.
