AMARILLO, Texas (KMAR/KCIT) — According to an NCAA.com release, the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooner’s Red River Rivalry are one of the best rivalries in college football. Today on Oct. 8 these teams would face off in their 118th meeting.
Texas would make that hard to believe today by shutting the Sooners out in a 49-0 victory bringing their all-time record in the rivalry series to 63-50-5. This will be the first time Texas shut out the Sooners since 1965, I’m sure none of the players who played today were even thought about yet.
