The biggest game of the year has arrived as the Sooners head to Arlington to take on the Texas Longhorns for a second time this year. On this week’s Choctaw Casino & Resort Unofficial 40 we dive right into the horns down controversy, the matchups we’re looking forward to in Arlington, the Coop Ale Works Players to Watch as well as the recruiting that takes center stage immediately after this game. Oh yeah, Lincoln Riley has to hire a defensive coordinator too. But first it’s the rematch at Cowboys Stadium. Are the Sooner even better on offense?
