Oklahoma and Texas face off in the Cotton Bowl in Dallas. This will be the 99th Red River Shootout. It has been held at the Cotton Bowl, which is almost an equal distance from both campuses, since 1929.

Who: Texas (5) vs. Oklahoma (2)
When: Sat., 12:00 p.m. ET (ABC)
Where: Cotton Bowl, Dallas, TX

This will be the 59th consecutive sellout. Texas leads the series 55-38-5 but Oklahoma has won the last four, including a 65-13 rout last year. The winner of the game will be presented with the Golden Hat Trophy and the Governor's Trophy, which resides with the top elected official of each state.
