DALLAS (AP) — This is how the second Saturday of October is supposed to be for sixth-ranked Oklahoma and No. 21 Texas. The stands should be full again and the State Fair of Texas will be in full swing while the Sooners and Longhorns play their Red River rivalry game Saturday.
When unranked Oklahoma won in four overtimes last October, there were only about 24,000 fans in the 92,100-seat Cotton Bowl because the fair was shut down in the pandemic. That win started the Sooners’ 13-game winning streak.
Texas has scored 160 points while winning its last three games.
