Over the past twenty years, the Oklahoma Sooners and Bob Stoops were synonymous. Simply put, you couldn’t mention one without the other. However, the long time head coach stepped aside as the program entered a new era. On Thursday, it was announced that Stoops would appear as an on-air personality for the Red River Rivalry.
Scheduled to host a two hour pregame show, Stoops voice hits the air wave at 9:00 AM CT on Saturday, October 6 on FOX Sports 1. Bringing an opposing view to the table, former Texas Longhorn quarterback, Vince Young joins the former coach. The dialogue between the two should prove interesting and entertaining as each possesses a unique view of the rivalry.
Set to kickoff at 11:00 AM CT, the Red River Rivalry brings the best of college football rivalries to the Big 12 Conference. This year specifically, it brings two ranked foes to a stadium splitting the fans at the 50-yard line — the definition of a neutral site.
