Red River rematch: Texas-OU away from fair for Big 12 title

Thursday, November 29th, 2018

Former Texas defensive end Cory Redding would have loved to have another shot at Oklahoma in his college career, especially in 2001 when the only loss for the Longhorns before the Big 12 championship game was to their Red River rival. On Saturday, for the first time in 115 years, the fifth-ranked Sooners (11-1) and ninth-ranked Longhorns (9-3) will face each other for the second time in the same season. Texas won 48-45 eight weeks ago at the State Fair of Texas, where every game between the two teams has been played since 1929.
