When the Oklahoma Sooners and Texas Longhorns travel to the Cotton Bowl on Saturday, it will be the 106th time these two schools have played. Dubbed the Red River Rivalry, the matchup is one of the greatest in the history of college sports. In the past decade, the winner of this game has advanced to the BCS Championship Game a whopping five times, putting an exclamation point on its importance. With Oklahoma currently 3rd in the national BCS rankings, and Texas 11th, Saturday’s game will very likely have bowl implications. Despite their close rankings, however, the Sooners should take care of Texas and win easily. Behind junior quarterback Landry Jones, Oklahoma has an electric offense, and Texas, having started the season unranked, has yet to show the talent to keep up.
