Need some gambling advice for Saturday’s Red River Rivalry? Take Texas. Moneyline. Empty the 401k. Tell your parents you need a loan. Bury UT. Hard. Avalanche. How do we know this game is a no brainer? Because we’ve been researching something called the ‘Southwest Pigskin Plane Pull’ for the last five years and whichever team wins the plane pull, loses the game. A team hasn’t won the plane pull & game since 2004. Fact. Guess who won the plane pull today?

According to Southwest Airline tweets coming out of Love Field this afternoon, Oklahoma plane pullers were .03 faster at pulling this giant jet.

Um, sorry to break it to you Boomer Sooner, but here are the last eight years. Don’t tell your buddy that you’re throwing $500 on UT. Pay for your entire trip with a moneyline play. Thank us Sunday morning.

2003 OU – Won plane pull – Won Red River Shootout

2004 OU – Won plane pull – Won Red River Shootout

2005 OU – Won plane pull – Lost Red River Shootout

2006 OU – Won plane pull – Lost Red River Shootout

2007 UT – Won plane pull – Lost Red River Shootout

2008 OU – Won plane pull – Lost Red River Shootout

2009 OU – Won plane pull – Lost Red River Shootout

2010 UT – Won plane pull – Lost Red River Shootout

2011 OU – Won plane pull – ????????
