Rivalry games are always fun, no matter the time or place. But when it's the Red River Rivalry, and the place is at the State Fair of Texas, there's something even more special. The yearly matchup between the Texas Longhorns and Oklahoma Sooners is one of the better rivalries to watch, with an environment -- including a 50/50 division of tickets and fans -- that's second to none.
This year's Red River Rivalry has high-stakes once again, with both teams ranked in the top-25 and the Sooners flirting with the No. 1 spot in the polls. Add it all up and you've got the marquee matchup of the week, and the site of ESPN's College Gameday.
