The Red River Rivalry isn’t quite as meaningful in the national picture as normal, but that won’t stop these two heated rivals from battling hard all the way through this Saturday afternoon’s contest. Both teams already have a loss and are almost assuredly out of the national title picture, but this is still a rivalry game between two teams with aspirations of winning the Big 12 Conference. Let’s take a closer look at this game.
The Red River Rivalry takes center stage in college football this Saturday from the Cotton Bowl. The game has been highly anticipated and was once thought to be the game of the year heading into the season. However, Oklahoma has shockingly been beaten twice this year which has taken some of the national importance off this year’s showdown. Although Oklahoma may be out of the National Championship picture, the Longhorns are very much in it. Oklahoma gets the chance to derail the Longhorns path to glory while putting their selves in control of the Big 12 South. However, all the importance of a win for both teams is just the extra incentive to the rivalry. These two schools own one of the biggest and most hated rivalries in the country and losing to the other is not an option.
