Oh course I carry a bias here but bias doesn’t really change any facts. Fact is, Oklahoma and Texas play their rivalry on the greatest stage in college football. As the Sooners and Longhorns get ready to face off for the 113th time, ESPN announced on Sunday that College GameDay will broadcast from the fair grounds before OU and Texas kickoff.
You ready, Dallas?

This marks the 35th time that the ESPN production has visited an Oklahoma football game. The Sooners carry a 24-11 record when the College GameDay crew is present.
Oklahoma is 5-0 for the first time since 2013 and the Longhorns will come to the Cotton Bowl with a 4-1 record, having won their last four games after dropping the opener to Maryland.
The Sooners trail the all-time series with Texas, 46-61-5, but have won six of the last eight meetings, including the last two years.
FOX will also feature its own pregame show from the fairgrounds. Their show begins at 9:00 AM and will feature Bob Stoops and former Texas quarterback Vince Young.
Kickoff for Saturday’s Red River Rivalry is set for 11:00 AM on FOX.
