Texas Vs. Oklahoma

Big game on Saturday: The 100th 'Red River Rivalry' (try saying that five times fast). Texas, as you probably know, has lost the last five. This year UT is a legitimate number two in the country, and OU has lost several key players from last years team. Texas is favored by 13 1/2. Having said that, this one of those 'anything can happen' games. It doesn't seem to matter who is ranked where, ask either side.

Here goes....Texas wins 31-14. In previous years the Longhorns have seemed tight leading up to the Cotton Bowl, and I just don't sense that this year. As long as they don't underestimate a dangerous Sooner team (who would LOVE to derail UT's title hopes) the curse will be reversed.

Hook 'Em!

That is a HUGE debate around here. Most in Austin would like to see the game stay in Dallas. It's a great tradition. Sure, the Cotton Bowl is a dump, but it is situated in the Texas Fair grounds (which is going on now), so win or lose everyone spills into the fair to keep the party going. Nothing like a beer and a Fletcher's corny dog after ax TX-OU game. Plus Dallas is exactly in beween Norman and Austin, and both schools, for the most part, seem to like the arrangement.

Red River Rivalry is tough to say. That's probably why everyone calls this game The Red River Shootout. :D

I gotta pull for the Sooners even though I think The Longhorns are gonna win big.

As a big 10 guy, I am glad Michigan and OSU don't play in Cleveland every year.
