Texas Longhorns vs. Oklahoma Sooners
Countdown to the Rivalry Game:
Texas vs. Oklahoma
The Red River Showdown, dating back to 1900, is one of the oldest and most storied rivalries in college football between the Texas Longhorns and the Oklahoma Sooners. The annual rivalry game is traditionally scheduled in October during the Texas State Fair and has been played at the Cotton Bowl Stadium in Dallas, TX on the banks of the Red River since 1912. For much of its history, the game was known as the “Red River Shootout.” However in 2005, the name changed to the “Red River Rivalry” and finally to the “Red River Showdown” in 2014.
Oklahoma and Texas have met twice in one season three times over the course of the rivalry – in 1901 and 1903, and then in the 2018 Big 12 Championship game. The Longhorns and the Sooners will both be leaving the Big 12 and joining the SEC on July 1, 2024.
