Barry Switzer: "There was one classic, and that was Nebraska and Oklahoma playing at Thanksgiving time for the Big 8 title. That's gone."— Steven M. Sipple (@HuskerExtraSip) May 31, 2012
Simply put, this must happen.
It was bad enough when the Big 12 was formed and the tradition of this magnificent game was lost and it obviously only got worse once the Huskers bailed to the Big 10. Renewing this all-time great rivalry would be an absolute win-win for both schools and, perhaps more importantly, for both fan bases.
You have to believe Joe C. and the powers that be at Oklahoma are aware of the fan's desire to see these two teams play again, so make it happen people!
