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.
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.
