College Sports: ESPN’s ‘College GameDay’ to head to Dallas for Texas-Oklahoma

ESPN’s “College GameDay” show will set up shop at the State Fair of Texas next Saturday in Dallas for the annual Red River Showdown between Texas and Oklahoma.

It’s the first time “GameDay” has made the trip to the Cotton Bowl for Texas-Oklahoma since 2011, when the No. 3 Sooners clobbered No. 11 Texas, 55-17.

This year’s Texas-Oklahoma matchup, which kicks off at 11 a.m. on FOX, will have the most hype it’s had in recent years, considering the Longhorns are 4-1 for the first time since 2012. That was the last time Texas entered the Cotton Bowl ranked.

After a disappointing loss to Maryland in Week 1, the Longhorns have rattled off four consecutive wins to climb to 4-1 and to No. 18 in the AP Top 25. Texas survived a scare against Kansas State on Saturday, 19-14, to win in Manhattan for the first time since 2002. 

No. 6 Oklahoma, led by former Allen High School star Kyler Murray at quarterback, has started the season 5-0. The Sooners routed Baylor, 66-33, on Saturday.

Texas has lost the last two years to the Sooners. Last year’s meeting was the first for each program’s current head coaches, Tom Herman and Lincoln Riley, which was a 29-24 win for Oklahoma.

The Longhorns lead the all-time series record, 61-46-5.
