It is Gameday! The University of Oklahoma’s #12 ranked Football team takes it 5-0 record on to the field in the Red River Rivalry. This is a big game at the Cotton Bowl for the Sooners as they are favored by two touchdowns and widely seen as the better team.  The Sooners have the talent edge and go into the 78th edition of the Red River Rivalry brimming with confidence.. Boomer! OU Football: Oklahoma vs. Texas at 11AMCST Location: Cotton Bowl, Dallas, Texas TV Coverage: ABC, Channel Listing Satellite Radio: Sirius 117 or XM 202 Radio: Radio Channel Listing Twitter: @OU_Football Dallas Morning News Preview: See Online OU Fan Guide: See Online Summary Preview: The Red River Rivalry has been a tale of back and forth winning streaks since Texas joined the Big12. The Sooners are currently taking a three-game winning streak into the 2013 rendition of the game.  The Sooners must press the gas and let their athletes make plays and use the talent edge bring home the game, but if this becomes a game full of turn-overs then anything is possible, especially in a rivalry game.  Ultimately, I believe OU’s defense coming off the big win against TCU and the offense focused on running the ball will be too much for the Longhorns. The Sooners come out strong in the first half and really pull away and win by 31 points. Boomer! Sooner4OU prediction: OU 48-17 Texas. Important Note: The Sooner and Longhorns will be wearing alternate uniforms with gold accents made specially for the 2013 Red River Rivalry.
